The New York Islanders are Overachieving in 2018-2019
The New York Islanders are overachieving in the 2018-2019 season. Why's this the case?
Rob Gronkowski's career length is not expected to rival the iron men of the NFL greats such as Tony Gonzalez near twenty year career, but so far in his groundbreaking (due to multitude of spikes) career he has collected over 7,000 receiving yards and 75+ touchdowns.
But, if at the completion of his contract sign a three year extension playing four more seasons he would finish, at this pace, with 115 touchdowns placing him in rare air, top twenty total all time. Passing all time legends such as Barry Sanders, Tim Brown, Don Hutson and even Mr, Iron man Tony Gonzalez. Not to mention nearly, 12,000 yards receiving. Football Heaven will be beating down his door.
Before Gronk eventually dons his Gold Jacket, he still has ball to play. No matter what WWE rumors pop up nearly every week for him, football is his true love, he can always throw his multitude of brothers through tables at home (or in Buffalo).
I believe Hue Jackson is determined to turn the tides of Cleveland's horrified past. I believe they will come to reach an agreement with the Patriots trading one of their first round picks for Rob Gronkowski. Pairing Gronk with the likes of Josh Gordon, Jarvis Landry, Corey Coleman, Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson. Taking as much stress off of Tyrod Taylor and whomever they pick and either 1 or 4, assumingly Sam Darnold.
Gronk will flourish in a lower stress environment allowing him to go full Gronk (all footballs beware). Blasting past Hall of Famers in the record books.
