The New England Patriots just can’t enough of Rob Gronkowski’s younger brother. The defending champs re-signed fullback Glenn Gronkowski, who had four different stints with the team in 2016, to a futures contract Tuesday.
The 22-year-old, who went undrafted last year, made the Bills’ 53-man roster but was released by Buffalo in September. Gronkowski initially joined the Patriots’ practice squad in October.
Rob Gronkowski was limited to eight games last season and had back surgery, forcing the Pro Bowl tight end to sit out the Patriots’ run to their fifth Super Bowl title.
