Gronk ready to go for Week 1.
Great news and it seems like this was the plan all along. I expect him to be eased in, especially in the red zone while Hooman and Wright do the heavy lifting early on.
Once Gronk is back up to speed it will be exciting to see how the offense gets back to unstoppable mode. Just stay healthy!

More tackle depth, the long snapper will have to wait.
Can’t say I’m surprised and really, just happy we got anything for him as I was ready to release him. And it’s only a 6th-rounder if he plays 40 percent of the snaps. Otherwise it’s a 7th-rounder.
That shows you where Mallett’s value was around the league, with Dallas also interested in him.
Garoppolo would have some ups and downs but is a far better fit for the Patriots offense.
Mallett overcame any concerns of “character issues” and was a solid back-up for three seasons. Luckily he was never needed. I wish him the best.
There’s some speed at wide receiver that could accommodate Mallett’s game in Houston. We’ll see if he can develop more touch.
Now we can sign some long snapper and we’re on to Miami!
