Tom Brady might finally have a receiver he was actually throwing to fairly often last year.
Star tight end and all around party animal Rob Gronkowski is expected to finally return to the field after sitting out the first five weeks recovering from back and multiple forearm surgeries.
Per league source, Rob Gronkowski is expected to be cleared this week and it is likely he will play on Sunday against the Saints.

Rob Gronkowski might not actually be able to single-handedly save the Patriots, but he sure will help. The effect that the "Gronk Chomp" has on this offense is very tangible.
For instance, the Patriots currently have one of the worst redzone offenses in the league, failing to score from the 1 yard line last week.
