Gronkowski caught nine passes for 116 yards and two touchdowns in the loss.
Just 28, Gronkowski ranks near the top of the greatest tight ends of all time. He’s a two-time Super Bowl champion and five-time Pro Bowler, with more than 7,000 yards and 76 touchdowns over his career.
Despite his elite status, Gronkowski has been one of the more injury-prone athletes in the NFL, suffering a plethora of significant injuries, including concussions, back fractures, forearm fractures, an ACL tear and much more. The beating appears to have taken its toll, and he is expected to re-evaluate things this summer.
