Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski has a pretty solid resume so far -- a four-time Super Bowl champion, five-time Pro Bowler, and he's pretty much a lock for the Hall of Fame one day whenever he decides to retire again. But there's one record he hasn't broken yet, and that's Tony Gonzalez's record of the most 100-yard games by a tight end. Gonzalez sits at the top with 31.
Gronk is currently sitting at 30 games with 100-yards or more, just one shy of Gonzalez's record. Next up? Breaking this record, and Gronkowski intends to do just that.
"Let me tell you, I'm trying to break that record," Gronkowski told NFL Network. "I mean, why wouldn't I try to break that record? I'm coming for it. Tony, I'm coming for it. Basically, you got every record, so I'm coming for this one, and it's a pretty cool one, too, for sure. It just shows that I guess you're a baller and Tony's a baller."
The one thing that has hindered Gronk during his career is injuries, so it's fair to assume he may have already broken this record, right? It's also why he retired the first time and probably the reason he would again. When he finally decides he's had enough, Gronk is a lock for the Hall of Fame, regardless of the record books.
