In response to Harvey-Wallbanger's comment:
If that is true, the team needs an explanation and that explanation needs to be released as a press release to the public. You simply cannot be running around all summer partying in bewteeen surgeries, doing book tours, offer to people to fly to Vegas and get hammered, bodyslam your friends on a dance floor (odd), and then not be ready to play as you practice and look just fine in practice.
I am sorry, but you can't let the agent, Gronk's daddy, etc, try to dictate from the sidelines like some over-zealous parent who is basically looking to cast blame on some bad luck with a broken arm.
It's not like Gronk came into this league with a clean injury history, and I just hope this has nothing to do with players pulling back from HGH in fear of the testing that was rumored to start off the CBA or this season.
It's pretty bizarre to get such conflicting reports off a broken bone in a 23 year old's arm from January.
Christ, the infection gone and final surgery was May!
The other thing is, he's taken a roster spot up this whole time when he should have spoken up and told them he should be PUPd. Clearly, this is a power pay by "Team Gronk" and it's being reported the Pats have put all final decisions into Gronk's lap, so this is Gronk and his ego in control here, folks.
Final call comes tomorrow.
Nice job Russ! There is no excuse for this. Gronk can't even use Clowney's excuse. THIS IS THE NFL and he's got his contract. Play or your a puzzy Gronk.
THE RallyC has returned!
call it a cameo Joe. Nice OP brother!
