Four-way battle to back up Gronk
by Larry Hartstein |

Four players are vying to back up Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, whose surgically repaired knee might not be 100 percent when the season opens, reports the Boston Globe. The paper projects Michael Hoomanawanui to beat out D.J. Williams, Asa Watson and Justin Jones for the No. 2 job.

A five-year vet, Hoomanawanui is a 6-4, 260-pounder who "runs good routes over the middle but does not have the long speed to threaten a defense vertically down the seam," the paper said. He has caught 20 of 26 targets over the past two seasons, with one drop.
