He was a three-time Super Bowl champion (XLIX, LI, LIII), a five-time Pro Bowl and four-time First Team All-Pro selection, and was the highest ranked tight end in the NFL Top 100 Players for six consecutive years from 2013 to 2018.

Gronkowski played college football at the University of Arizona, winning several awards, including being named a Sporting News and Rivals.com Freshman All-American. The Patriots drafted Gronkowski in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft with the 42nd pick, after missing his junior year due to back surgery.

Notable for being a skilled receiver and talented blocker, Gronkowski set several NFL records including being the only one of his position to lead the league in receiving touchdowns (17) in 2011. He also has the most seasons with 1,000+ receiving yards by a tight end with four and the most career postseason receiving yards by a tight end (1,163)– the only tight end in NFL history to reach 1,000 or more yards. He has the most career postseason receiving touchdowns for his position with 12, as well as the most combined receptions (23) and receiving yards (297) by a tight end in Super Bowl history. He is ranked first in both average receiving yards per game (68.4) and average touchdowns per game (0.69) among tight ends.Gronkowski is one of most recognizable football players of the 2010s with a larger-than-life personality on and off the field. With his numerous accomplishments and accolades, he is regarded by many sports analysts, writers, and peers as not only one of football's finest players but the greatest tight end to ever play the game.
