Default Chris Gronkowski (FB) traded to Broncos

For Cassius Vaughn

We’ve acquired FB Chris Gronkowski from Indianapolis in exchange for CB Cassius Vaughn. …

Our team has a lot of depth in the secondary and this an opportunity for us to add a quality fullback to our roster.

this Gronkowski is ok... at least he's not going to be dancing half naked on stage with a bunch of dudes just a few minutes after losing the superbowl.

on the downside, he's the reason Tony Romo had a broken clavicle. due to a missed block.

but he's still a good FB.

I wonder if this means we are going back to more of a zone blocking system?

Lots of Power I sets this year?

WTF?? Cassius Vaughn is a good young CB with return ability. The Broncos needed as much depth as possible there to compete against the spread air attacks. Traded for a FB when you have Manning at QB? At least we can't blame Xanders anymore.

you haven't been reading the recent articles have you? the team and manning have said over and over again that this will be a more balanced offense and that it's a welcomed change going back closer to his days with Edgerrin James in Indy instead of his most recent times(which got him hurt to begin with)

We're facing Phyllis Rivers...twice, Carson Palmer...twice, Rapistburger, Matt Ryan, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Matt Schaub, and Matt Cassell twice. FB is where. it's. at.

pure FB, can catch a bit but with block your ass into the next century when he gets a lock on you. don't expect him to run much unless it's maybe goal line situations.

We keep trading young CBs for Gronkowskis.

I figure Vaughn would've been in a fight just to make the team w/ Champ, Florence, Porter, Bolden and Harris at CB. Not to mention Thompson and Judie.

He was a KR too, but 1/2 the games there are no kicks returned. Page could be the PR/KR.

How good a FB is Gronkowski?

This is for the people who think the Oline is horrible at blocking and is worried about mannings neck. Now there's a moveable brick wall they can plug in there. He blocks better than Walton and Beadles combined.

Spencer Larsen can do what Chris Gronkowski does, and Larsen is a better receiver. Maybe one day the Broncos will get the right Gronkowski.
