TE Gronkowski signs massive deal-- Fri Jun 8 9:05 pm --
Pats star inks six-year deal worth 54 million
All-Pro Rob Gronkowski agreed Friday to a $54 million deal with the New England Patriots, the richest contract for a tight end in NFL history. The six-year deal includes $18.17 million guaranteed. It is a stunning move by the team for a player entering just his third NFL season, but the Patriots recognized the game-breaking skills of the record-setting Gronkowski. Gronkowski set a league record for the position with 17 touchdown catches in 2011. He also had a record 1,327 yards, and made 90 receptions. (Yahoo Sports)
FF Today's Take:The star tight end is a beast and a threat to score on every play inside the opponent's thirty yard line. Many 2012 mock drafts are projecting him to go as early as the second round so if you want Gronk, be prepared to use one of your top picks on him.
