Rob Gronkowski is the best player on the Patriots offense right now with Tom Brady being suspended and the tight end understands he needs to give his new quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo some confidence. Rob Gronkowski told 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Felger & Mazz on Thursday that Patriots players know Garoppolo well and believe in him.
“We got a lot of confidence in Jimmy,” Gronkowski said, via Oliver Thomas of 247 Sports. “I mean, we’ve been working together for the last two years. You just don’t work with the first team when you’re at practice every single time with the Patriots. You work with the first-teamers, second-teamers – everyone gets in the mix.
“Everyone works together, so when situations happen like this, everyone is comfortable with each other, everyone is on the same page, everyone has chemistry going,” Gronkowski continued. “We got a lot of confidence in all the players around, and I feel like if we all just work together and start from Day 1, which is coming up next week, and just prepare like every single year, we should be fine.”
I watched a lot of Jimmy G in college, and I will say this, he can get it done.
