Celebrate Rob Gronkowski's birthday with all the Gronk smashes you can handle

Gronk smashes his way through another birthday!

Party boy and fan favorite of New England Patriots fans, Rob Gronkowski is turning 27 on this glorious 14th day of May. It's only fitting that we take a look back at his highlights since he came into the league in 2010 and started tearing it up. He was the fastest tight end to 60 touchdowns with only two others having more than him.

The 42nd overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft set the single-season record for touchdowns by a tight end with 17 receiving touchdowns (and 18 overall), as well as the single-season record for receiving yards by a tight end with 1,327 in only his second year in the league. He also has the most postseason touchdowns for a tight end with nine.
