What's better than one Gronk?

I'll wait.

Two Gronks, that's what.

The Patriots have signed fullback Glenn Gronkowski to their practice squad, per the league transaction wire. Glenn is of course the younger brother of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and is one of five Brothers Gronkowski.

Glenn most recently played in Buffalo where he made the Bills' initial roster and played eight snaps in their Week 1 loss. However, Baby Gronk was cut soon after in favor of veteran fullback Jerome Felton.

Will we see two Gronkowskis on the field at the same time anytime soon? Probably not. New England employs just one fullback on its active roster, James Develin, but, with so many tight ends, rarely utilizes the position.

But we can still dream.
