Chargers sign Gronkowski

Posted Apr 23, 2013

The Chargers have signed former Denver Broncos fullback Chris Gronkowski.

The 6-2, 245 pounder from the University of Arizona has appeared in 35 games during his career, including 14 games for Denver in 2012. He caught one pass for 11 yards and recorded four tackles on special teams for the Broncos last season.
 
Gronkowski is the younger brother of the New England’s Rob Gronkowski and Cleveland’s Dan Gronkowski, making the brothers the first trio from one family to play in the NFL since Brian, Gary and Rich Baldinger all played in 1992.
 
Chris originally signed with Dallas as an undrafted free agent in 2010 and played in 14 games for the Cowboys with seven starts. He was waived by the Cowboys prior to the 2011 season and was claimed by Indianapolis. Gronkowski played in seven games for the Colts but his season ended on Oct. 25 when he was placed on “Reserve-Injured” with a pectoral injury. The Colts traded Gronkowski to the Broncos on May 23, 2012.
 
A native of Williamsville, New York, Gronkowski began his collegiate career at the University of Maryland and later transferred to Arizona. He played baseball for the Wildcats in 2006 and joined the football team in 2007.
