AP Photo After an fun-filled summer, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has made it clear that he’s only focused on football now that training camp is here. “It’s training camp time,” Gronkowski said, per Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald. “When it’s football time, it’s all football, nothing but football, always excited about football. I’m glad to be back. I missed the locker room, missed the teammates, missed competing versus the defense. So far the last two days, having a lot of fun out there competing as hard as we can. “Just here to play some football, baby.” That sounds great.  Gronkowski should be poised for another great year as long as his back and the rest of his body holds up.
