It appears that the San Diego Chargers have signed Gronk. Not the crazy fun one that is All-World. His brother. Chris Gronkowski.
Gronkowski is a fullback that will be competing for a spot in the Chargers backfield and could be battling it out with Le’ron McClain for a fullback spot.
The picture to the right was tweeted by Orlando Rene (@OrlandoRVargas), who I am assuming is a buddy of Gronk. There are other peeps on twitter giving him a shout out as well welcoming him to the Chargers.
Still haven’t seen anyone post about this yet, so waiting for the official word. But pretty sure we have a new fullback in camp. Why would journalists care too much about the other Gronk?
Wonder what this means for Le’Ron McClain though. The Chargers could save some dough if they cut him loose. Gronk started 7 games for the Cowboys in 2010 and was with Tom Telesco and the Colts in 2011. He was also with Mike McCoy and the Broncos last season. So he has some ties with the uppers.
Ladies and gentlemen, Welcome Gronk!
