Patriots Bring Back TE Dan Gronkowski

The Gronkowski brothers are reunited once again.

On Tuesday, The Patriots announced that they re-signed tight-end Dan Gronkowski — 17 days after the team released the brother of Rob.

Mike Reiss, of ESPN Boston, said that the original release of Dan Gronkowski may have been due to an injury and that the plan along was for him to rejoin the team once he was healthy.

“One tip-off was that his belongings remained in his locker,” Reiss reported.

In two games with the Patriots, Gronkowski’s¬†major contributions have come in the blocking department. Gronkowski has yet torecord a reception for the Patriots.

Last week against the Jets, New England used reserve lineman Thomas Welch as a blocking tight-end to help out against the Jets pass rush. Welch struggled and was released on Monday.

The Patriots now have three active TEs on the roster, with the Gronkowski brothers and Aaron Hernandez.
