Paul Kruger welcomes his brothers Dave, Joe to NFL

The glorious trio of the Gronkowski brothers has graced the NFL landscape for some time, but as of Saturday, they have some competition.

The Kruger three -- Paul, Joe and Dave -- each have found an NFL home.

Paul, of course, signed a lucrative five-year, $41 million contract in March to bring his pass-rushing skills to the Cleveland Browns. He'll be joined in Cleveland by his brother Dave, lured off the street as an undrafted free agent to play on the defensive line.

Their brother Joe Kruger, a defensive end, was selected No. 212 overall in the 2013 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday.

This is becoming common: Marcus and Isaiah Trufant welcomed their younger brother, Desmond, to the NFL after he was drafted No. 22 overall Thursday by the Atlanta Falcons.

In Cleveland, Paul better be paying for everything. With $20 million guaranteed coming his way, he'll certainly rescue Dave -- and his meager undrafted free-agent contract -- from a potential existence of Ramen noodles in a tiny studio apartment overlooking Lake Erie.

It's good to have family around.
