Patriots Tight End Rob Gronkowski Sets Another NFL Record

Rob Gronkowski New England Patriots

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE

Rob Gronkowski has set another record as the New England tight end recorded his 10th touchdown reception of the season becoming the first player in NFL history to record 10 touchdowns in his first three seasons.

The third-year tight end from Arizona caught a 24-yard pass from Tom Brady for his second touchdown of the game following a sack and strip of Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck to set the stage for the former second-round pick.

Gronkowski already owns the record for most receiving yards in a single-season for a tight end that he established last season when he had 90 receptions for 1,327 yards.

He also owns the record for touchdowns in a season with the 17 touchdown receptions he had in 2011.

With Brady not showing any signs of slowing down as his quarterback, Gronkowski should continue to pile up the gaudy statistics he has so far that could merit his enshrinement in Canton, Oh at the pro football hall of fame when his career is over.

Certainly that may seem to be a bit premature to suggest a player midway through his third season is going to the hall of fame, but with 37 touchdown receptions in 41 games, the sky is the limit for the man they call “Gronk,”–who could be the best to ever play the position.
