The New England Patriots once again boast two pro bowl talented tight ends in Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett. The two hulking pass catchers currently rank right next to each other atop the tight end receiving charts. Gronkowski, (375 yards) and Bennett (367 yards) are third and fourth, respectively, amongst all tight ends.
Yet despite practicing alongside one another every day, being so close in statistical standing and the only remaining tight ends on the Patriots’ roster following Tuesday afternoon’s trade of A.J. Darby, Gronkowski and Bennett have not advanced to the next level in their relationship.
Bennett on his friendship with Gronk: We aren't Facebook friends, but we are friends.

Perhaps the reasoning behind Gronkowski and Bennett’s lack of Facebook friendship is simply because Bennett is such a prolific tweeter. Bennett has tweeted nearly 15,000 times to his 155,000-plus followers. Plus, Gronkowski spends a lot of his free time as an undercover Lyft driver.
