    A healthy Gronk is the missing link to another Lombardi.  Cut him and watch him raise the trophy somewhere else.  We can keep the Duck Boats parked.

    No way!  This kid is way too talented ( key words here: when healthy) ....I know, but way too good to get rid of a guy like this.  Build around him and hope he can play 19 games, not counting pre-season of course.

    Any opinions on weather they try to trade this guy this off season? I know it would be a bad time to get maximum value for him, but I took a look at his contract and I don't think he'll be here past this season anyway...he's due a 10 million dollar bonus in 2015 to extend the remainder of his 53 million dollar contract. And when I think of this player regarding what he will be this season, I picture a guy on the pup maybe starting to play in November, being a shell of his former self. Keep in mind Gronk was a little nervous comming back from the wrist injury - I imagine it will be worse comming back from the knee.

    So my fear is (aside from gronk getting injured again) that we are going to have Gronk at maybe 80% towards the end of next season, then we will cut him in the off season rather than give him a 10 million dollar bonus. I guess they could rework his deal, but I imagine that would have to be done closer to now, rather after he completes next season (and has more leverage).

    Could we get a second rounder for him right now? He is a all world talent...the problem is he may never be that again after this knee injury.

    NO WAY I would do it... 2nd rounder?  Lets see our past failures in 2nd round....Wheatly, Chung, Tavon Wilson.....the list goes on...

    Gronk when on field opens up other receivers too which helps because they are not capable of getting separation by themselves...

    It is not like Gronk is suffering injuries by simply walking onto the field.

    His arm was broken by a freak play on a PAT and his recovery was delayed due to the infection and, possibly, coming back a bit too early.

    His leg was caved in by a full, low, body blow by a DB.

    Lastly, wasn't he playing lights out until that low blow?  The only question now is how will the knee be upon his return.

    Imagine if this type of talk occurred with Brady after 2008?

    You got to be kidding me, right? I mean you make it seem like a knee injury of that magnitude is a root canal...nothing major...guy doesn't need his knee..minor. And let's just forget the arm plate, back surgery (yeah no one needs a back), ankle surgery (tiss but a flesh wound) and his final season at Arizona missed because of a back injury. And let's forget that he hasn't played a full post season in three out of the four seasons he's been here...or is that four out of four, I forget. Whatever no big deal.

    And to bring up Brady's knee injury is a joke - for one thing the guy doesn't have to RUN for a living or take numerous hits at his legs from linebackers on every single play. It's a bit different.

    And I'm certain Kraft is enjoying the off the field stuff too...what was that thing he did in that reality show he had/has? Oh yeah his brother said he would walk around the pools in Vegas juiced up on Viagra while wearing a speedo! That's some funny stuff right there! Good enough to be put on tv!

    I don't think it's as cut and dry as you think.

    Think back to Wes Welker.  I bet you never imagined he would be the same player he used to be after he had the same type injury.  Guess what...he was.  No way would I give up on Mr. G.  The guy is young and an absolute animal.  Now, if they want to go find someone to take AH's place, that would be fine.

    Ok, glad everyone is confident he will not only come back, but come back as good as he was before. I hope everyone is right, he is a game changer...no doubt. Personally - and I've said this before jokingly - I'd put him in bubble wrap until the playoffs started and then unleash him. That may not be that far off of an idea heading into next season with his rehab, etc.

    mt.. you make Gronk look like he is "easily" injured.  I never once minimized the scope of his injuries, just posted how they occurred.  Conversely, it has been said many times here that players like Talib and Amendola get injured far more easily.

    Isn't it better to look at the glass "half-full" then be a pessimist?  Brady and Welker came back to play just fine and thinking Gronk can too, is just fine.

    Rob Gronkowski is another tough one, a huge cap hit with serious injury issues.  I just don't see Gronk ever playing a full season without injuries.   

    If they keep Gronk, it will cost the Pats in other areas that need addressing.
