Gronkowski, who has 52 career touchdowns, is signed with the Patriots through the 2019 season.
Gronkowski caught 82 passes for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns in the 2014 regular season. In five seasons, Gronkowski has 308 catches for 4,379 yards and 54 touchdowns in just 65 games for New England. He is under contract through 2019, when he is scheduled to have a base salary of $9 million.

Gronkowski hauled in six balls for 68 yards during the contest. He finished second on the club in receiving yards. While it wound up being a mild game for Gronkowski, he would not be kept out of the end zone. In the second quarter, he hauled in a 22 yard touchdown from Tom Brady. Gronkowski was matched up against the linebacker in coverage, and just blew right past him for the catch.
