Rob Gronkowski 'Smarter Than He Looks,' Doesn't 'Have a Screw Loose,' According to Dane FletcherFOXBORO, Mass. –At first, Patriots linebacker Dane Fletcher scoffed at the notion that teammate and roommate Rob Gronkowski had "super intelligence."

Then, Fletcher kind of came around to the idea.

"I think the thing about Rob is he is fooling everybody," Fletcher said Wednesday at Gillette Stadium. "That kid is smarter than he looks. He might come off to the media and whatnot that he might have a screw loose, but he's all there."

Fletcher has stepped in recently on the offensive side of the ball as a blocker, a role he said he doesn't dislike. He joked that despite Gronkowski's intelligence, the tight end can't always communicate his blocking brilliance in the form of advice.

"No, he gives me the worst tips in the world," Fletcher said with a laugh, before adding, "No, that's not [true]."
