Glenn Gronkowski, brother of Pats TE Rob, agrees with hometown Bills

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The AFC East will need to make room for another Gronk after the Buffalo Bills agreed to an undrafted free-agent deal with former Kansas State fullback Glenn Gronkowski.

The youngest of five Gronkowski brothers, Glenn follows in the footsteps of his older brother Rob, a tight end for the New England Patriots, as well as brothers Dan and Chris, both former NFL players.

Glenn Gronkowski, a native of the Buffalo suburb of Williamsville, tweeted about signing with his hometown team shortly after the draft concluded Saturday evening:

Rob Gronkowski also tweeted congratulations to his younger brother:

Glenn Gronkowski played in 13 games each of the past three seasons for Kansas State, making 20 starts. He earned second-team All-Big 12 honors in 2015 and was a first-team All-Big 12 selection in 2014.

"He's the new-age fullback," Bills general manager Doug Whaley said of Gronkowski last week. "A guy that can play a little H-back, play a little fullback, play a little tight end, so that's game-day versatility. That's a guy at 46 on your 46-man roster during game day that can play three different positions and special teams, so I think a guy like that definitely has a chance."
