Report: Chargers get their Gronk on

By Bill Williamson

Consolation Prize Gronk Nation apparently will live on in the AFC West.

New England Patriots star tight end Rob Gronkowski has tweeted that his brother, fullback Chris Gronkowski, has signed with the San Diego Chargers.

Big Ups to my Bro #3 @chrisgronkowski for signing with the San Diego Chargers!

Chris Gronkowski, who was a free agent, played for new San Diego head coach Mike McCoy while serving in a backup role in Denver.

A versatile athlete who can play on special teams, Gronkowski is not a lock to make the roster in San Diego. He will have to earn a roster spot.
