The Buffalo Bills have sat back and watched Willimasville-native Rob Gronkowski dominate the NFL for years for the New England Patriots. At least for a short period of time, the Buffalo Bills have a Gronk of their very own.
Glenn Gronkowski, Rob's little brother and a fullback prospect out of Kansas State, announced that he signed as an undrafted free agent with the Bills shortly after the 2016 NFL Draft ended.
Staying home. Go bills!

Despite now being AFC East rivals, his older brother, Rob, sent out his well wishes on Twitter.
Congrats lil bro @ggronko signing with our hometown Buffalo Bills. It's all about getting an opportunity and capitalizing. Go pats! ??

The 6-foot-2, 239-pound Gronkowski will be the fourth brother to have gotten some time in the NFL. Besides Rob, his older brothers Dan and Chris also spent some time playing professional football. He'll likely have to make his mark on special teams in order to crack the 53-man roster in Buffalo.
