One of New England Patriots star tight end’s Rob Gronkowski‘s brothers are on the move in the NFL. His older brother has been traded to the Denver Broncos.

Chris Gronkowski has traded by the Indianapolis Colts to the Broncos. He was traded for Cassius Vaughn.

There was speculation that Vaughn was never going to make the Colts final roster. Some believe he has more NFL potential than Gronkowski

Gronkowski was picked up by the Colts on Sept. 4th, 2011. He played in seven games with the team.

He previously played for the Dallas Cowboys in 2010. With them, he appeared in 14 games, including seven starts.

He caught five rushes for 17 yards, including a longest for eight-yards. He also had seven receptions for 35 yards and a touchdown, his long touchdown at this point.

Gronk is mainly a lead blocker, who struggles in pass protection. In addition, fullbacks have struggled with Peyton Manning at quarterback.

It’ll be interesting if he’ll be able to gain a roster spot.

Vaughn, on the other hand, played in nine games, including three starts, in 2011 with the Broncos. He had 20 tackles, 4 pass deflections, and an interception.

As a rookie in 2010, he played in 13 games and had eight tackles.
