Rob Gronkowski, who has made headlines since the Patriots were eliminated from the postseason more for his arm surgeries and clubbing antics than for his incumbent 2013 NFL season, has just hit the headlines once again.

Tom Brady has already lost his top target in Wes Welker to the Denver Broncos in free agency, now he may be without his 'if-healthy' top target for an extended period in time. It's projected that Gronk will at least all of training camp, but who really knows? 

According to NFL.com, upon further examination and an MRI, a disk problem was revealed and he will now go under the knife in mid-June, definitely keeping him out of training camp in July. 

Can't Brady catch a break?!

Its unfortunate....this guy is a real BIG talent. There isn't a defense out there that has figured out how to defend him. Hoping he can play this year and produce like the Gronk we all know.

Looks like he will be auditioning for a ESPN expert analyst soon... His only topic will be drug use and how it hurt your body, shortens your career..but give you a great pay day... like winning the lottery... best part is that this is no downside to becoming a drug addict.. You get more money than you can ever spend...
