Rob Gronkowski’s Return Comes At Perfect Time For New England Patriots
Rob Gronkowski is reportedly set to return to the New England Patriots in week six. After sitting out the first five games of the 2013 season, the All-Pro tight end will return just in time for the Patriots’ matchup with the New Orleans Saints this Sunday.
Gronk’s return has been speculated about for quite some time now, as he’s been participating in full practices for several weeks. But with the Patriots running their record to 4-0 through the first month of the season, it was ultimately decided to hold the TE back. Now coming off of the team’s first loss of the year, Gronk’s return comes at the perfect time.
New England is going to need all hands on deck to knock off the high-flying Saints. Drew Brees and company have it going like they did a few years back when the Saints hoisted the Lombardi trophy. At the same time, Tom Brady is coming off his worst game in a long time. This past Sunday marked the first time Brady failed to find the end zone in 52 games, a near record number. The Patriots flat out did not look good in week five.
Gronkowski’s season debut will also come one week after the return of Danny Amendola. The Patriots star free agent acquisition had been on the shelf since week one with groin injury and now for the first time in 2013, the Patriots’ offense will be at full strength.
Of course, Gronk is likely to be eased back into the mix, but I will guarantee you that Brady doesn’t care. He’s just glad to have his favorite target back on the field.
