Belichick on Gronkowski: "Rob takes a lot of pride in whatever he does. He takes pride in a good block just like he takes pride in a good catch or takes pride in breaking a tackle or, for that matter, recovering an onside kick. He's been in a lot of different roles for us, but I can honestly say I've never seen him do anything but try his very best at those roles, whatever those happen to be."

Gronkowski in 2016: There isn't much more Gronkowski can accomplish in terms of personal stats. In terms of numbers he's already the best tight end in the game and if he remains healthy he'll no doubt add another 1,000-yard, double-digit touchdown season to his resume in 2016. Quite simply he's the most unstoppable offensive weapon in football.
