Upon reaching 1,000 receiving yards for the season during Sunday's win over the Miami Dolphins, Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots became just the second tight end in NFL history to record multiple seasons with 1,000 or more receiving yards and 10 or more touchdowns, per ESPN Stats & Info.
Gronkowski hauled in three passes for 96 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 41-13 division-clinching victory, giving him 76 receptions for 1,093 receiving yards and 11 scores on the season.
He previously caught 90 passes for 1,327 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns back in 2011, when he set single-season records for both yards and touchdowns by a tight end.
Unsurprisingly, the only other tight end with multiple 1,000-yard, 10-touchdown seasons is New Orleans Saints superstar Jimmy Graham, who accomplished the feat in 2011 and 2013. Graham has 782 receiving yards and nine touchdowns through the first 14 games of the ongoing season, giving him an outside shot to become the first tight end with three such campaigns in a career.
