Gronk is not fast enough to make that play. At least this year he isn't. He looks slow and lumbering out there. Doesn't look nearly in as good of physical shape either, which I'm guessing is due to back injury/injuries not allowing him to work out like he normally would. I'll be surprised if he plays next year.

Gronk was in because that is a "last play" defense. The last play can be a hail mary pass. In a situation where chances of a hail mary are low, the "jumper" (Gronk) should be substituted for another safety/DB. For tackling purposes. That was not done.
