So I have a close friend of mine who is a bit of a birdy for me with the Patriots. He has a close family member who works with the team. We talk NFL insider stuff all the time. I normally don't talk rumblings from my birdies, but I saw someone in the Mock Draft forum mention this in one of their drafts and honestly...it's intriguing. We love pulling off trades with NE. What if the Pats offered Gronk for our first?

Considering how good our drafting has been lately, I'll take the 1st rounder for a guy on his rookie contract and the cap flexibility that comes with it. Plus Gronk has too much injury history for my liking.

NO!! The guy can't stay on the field.

He'd the best TE in the league, when he's on the field. He's only play 2 complete season, his Rookie and Sophomore seasons. The guy is a beast, right up until he's not, and that just doesn't work. Really similar to Terron Armstead.

If he were a CB, or RB, or something where you have so many to choose from, that would be fine. But that piece is so critical, and he'd be awesome, and likely gone after 6-10 games.

I'm with the majority here. Given how well we've done in the draft lately and knowing that we will need a healthy TE for our deep playoff run, Gronk is a no for me.

No thanks.

No on Gronk. He's too beat up.

He's one of my favorite players in the league, only a handful of Saints edge him out. 

But he's not worth a first for us.
