Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is in Good Spirits with DE Chandler Jones

The snapchat from the Patriots defensive end shows Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski feeling pretty good.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is not likely to play this week against the Houston Texans, but he's remaining in good spirits with his best friend defensive end Chandler Jones. Jones is one heck of a social media guru and he managed to snag this clip of Gronkowski rocking out in the car.

For those wondering, that is Queen Nicki Minaj's Super Bass, one of the greatest anthems of our generation and Gronkowski is just jamming in the seat without a care in the world.

This is exactly where I want my tight end to be at this point in the season- away from contact, away from harm, but still rocking out to release some of his pent up energy. You know that Gronk is still Gronk, and that he's going to return in a major way in time for the Patriots to make noise in the playoffs.

Factor in all of the Julian Edelman spottings (here, here, and here) of the receiver without a boot, or rehabbing, and it's not crazy to think that the Patriots' two most dangerous players on offense are close to a return.
