Report: Patriots Work Out Glenn Gronkowski, Seven Other Non-QB Free Agents


The New England Patriots had two Gronks at Gillette Stadium on Monday.

The Patriots worked out tight end Rob Gronkowski’s brother, fullback Glenn, on Monday, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss.

Glenn Gronkowski recently was released by the Buffalo Bills after going undrafted out of Kansas State this spring. He had seven carries for 30 yards during the preseason.

The Patriots had two Gronkowskis on their roster for five games in 2011 when they signed Dan, a tight end.

The Patriots worked out eight free agents in total Monday, though none were quarterbacks, which is surprising given Jimmy Garoppolo’s shoulder injury.

New England tried out tight ends Austin Traylor and Rory Anderson, defensive tackles Brandin Bryant and Trevon Coley, defensive backs Jamell Fleming and Doran Grant and running back Storm Johnson, according to Reiss.
