This offseason has been one to remember and one to forget for the New England Patriots. But it has been for reasons other than “Tebowmania” and “Ring Gate.”

It has been because of the tight end position.

The 2013 season for Rob Gronkowski continues to get worrisome by the week.

With reports indicating that Gronk will be requiring a fourth surgery on his forearm in the upcoming week, Mike Garafolo of USA Today is reporting that New England’s All Pro tight end might be dealing with a back problem.

By the time the Patriots reached the third day of the 2010 NFL Draft, they had already drafted one bargain at tight end in Rob Gronkowski, and one Florida player who slipped due to character concerns in middle linebacker Brandon Spikes.

Even recognizing the importance of players such as nose tackle Vince Wilfork, safety Devin McCourty, linebacker Jerod Mayo and left tackle Nate Solder, a case could be made that outside of quarterback Tom Brady, there is not one other player more important or valuable to the Patriots’ success than tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Gronkowski has absolutely proven himself over his first two-and-a-half seasons in the NFL that he is the league’s best all-around tight end, and he is both the Patriots’ most explosive offensive weapon and a go-to downfield receiver for Brady. The Patriots, however, could be playing without him for the rest of the regular season.

I’m not big on giving out grades to rate how a player has performed to this point, especially since the season is only halfway over. But, with the Patriots bye week marking the halfway point of their season it is time to evaluate each player and the impact they’ve had on the team.

With a 5-3 record the Patriots have matched their 2011 mark through 8 games, but is this a more talented team? This is my take on each player on the Patriots roster and their performance during the first half of the 2012 season.
