08:08 AM ET 07.24 | Good news, Patriots nation. The New England Patriots don't have any concerns about Pro Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski's health heading into training camp, a source with direct knowledge of his situation said Monday. The third-year pro suffered a serious ankle injury before Super Bowl XLVI, then played the game at less-than-full strength. He underwent successful arthroscopic surgery Feb. 10, but didn't participate in minicamp. Still, the source said Gronkowski is "good to go" when veterans report for training camp July 25. Earlier in the offseason, Gronkowski signed a six-year, $54 million extension that puts him under contract with the Patriots through 2019.

I'm interested to see what kind of numbers he puts up this year. You know every defensive coordinator is going to be scheming against him.

Now he just needs to take some dancing lessons and he'll be all set

Good luck with that. There aren't many players in the secondary that can defend his speed and size. But let them try and Hernandez will burn them. And some guy named Welker.

Really? And what part of my comments says he is 'unstoppable'? I was only pointing out he is a matchup problem for most secondaries.
