06:57 AM ET 04.24 | Chris Gronkowski, who spent 2011 with Tom Telesco and 2012 with Mike McCoy, found a way to reunite with them both on Tuesday. The veteran fullback signed a deal with the Chargers, the news first coming via Twitter from younger brother and Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. This is the fourth team in as many years for Chris, who joined Indianapolis after spending his rookie year in Dallas. Undrafted out of Arizona, the 26-year-old has played 410 snaps in his three-year career. He has five rushes for 17 yards and eight catches for 46 yards and one score. Gronkowski joins a backfield with Ryan Mathews, Danny Woodhead, Ronnie Brown, Foswhitt Whittaker, Edwin Baker and fullback Le'Ron McClain.

Take comfort in the fact that you are more comfortable on an airplane than any of them.

Nothing much here, either. But, what would you expect? During the season, Belichick has to provide an injury report, and it's never of any real value.

Unlike Darelle Revis and many others, when given the opportunity to say nothing, The Hoodie somehow manages to say even less.

True.... I thought maybe the Boston Globe dug up something new.

He now has a retirement plan. At $470 for each year played ( or just watching from the sideline) paid monthly at 55 he already is at $1880 every month, plus the $65,000 annuity the NFL hands out to every player.

Not a bad start for a guy I honestly never heard of.

My question is why haven't we had more threads about Foswhitt Whittaker?

I failed to mention that he, and his grammy, can make $850 an hour on their lap tops working just a few hours a month in their own home.

Every time that guy posts that junk on here, I go to my friends site and send him an email to "be my friend." I never get a response. Not even a no thank you.
