He also said he’s not sure how much playing time Gronkowski will get because Belichick hasn’t seen him perform at full speed in nearly two weeks.
The announcement isn’t a surprise -- the Giants have said all week they fully expected Gronkowski to play, and the fact the Patriots released receiver Tiquan Underwood on Saturday was another indication the Patriots were comfortable with their pass-catching units.
But until we have an answer to the second question, it’s still unclear just how much Gronkowski can help vs. the Giants.
