Rob Gronkowski was the elephant in the room to begin with, a 6-foot-6-inch, 265-pound behemoth with cast iron legs, a granite torso and hands made of cashmere. Outside of Tom Brady, there may be no more important player on the Patriots. And yet, as we inch toward Super Bowl XLVI, there has been relatively little discussion or information concerning a man who may be downright unstoppable.
Will Gronkowski be able to play?
And if so, how effectively?
