Rob Gronkowski Sound FX audio is here, and it’s spectacular. The Patriots tight end made some amusing comments during New England’s 37-16 win over the Buffalo Bills. Pats fans, you’ll want to hear this.
Gronkowski caught five of seven targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in the victory. He delivered highlight-reel material with the score, an eye-popping one-handed catch and toe-tap in the end zone. The kind of play that only a player with his size and skill could make.
The below clip from NFL reporter Dov Kleiman on Twitter shows Gronk on the sidelines proclaiming to Tom Brady: “Yo – I’m activated. I’m [expletive] ready.” A shot of his touchdown catch follows. But based on the video, his comments actually came later in the game, well after the play occurred.
Rob Gronkowski Sound FX Clip: ‘I’m Activated’
The Bills had 16 points at the time of Gronkowski’s comments, so they definitely came in the second half. In light of that, Gronk possibly made the declaration after the Patriots’ second touchdown in the third quarter. He spurred that drive when he made a 16-yard catch with the Bills’ Micah Hyde mugging him down the field. He then drew a 29-yard pass interference flag on the next play.

Rob Gronkowski Sound FX: A Brief History
Gronkowski previously appeared in a package for Week 6 of the 2016 season. In that video, he commented on Brady’s pinpoint accuracy on a touchdown pass to him.
Gronk rarely pops up in these clips at all, so savor this one while it’s fresh.
In light of his recent performance, Gronkowski has a great chance to show up again in the coming weeks on Sound FX. He usually just lets his play on the field do the talking. But candid audio like this is always a nice exclamation point for fans.
The only thing missing in these clips is sound from AFC Offensive Player of the Week Dion Lewis.
Gronkowski now has 28 catches for 464 yards and three touchdowns in his last three games. Furthermore, he can trigger the last of his incentives with 116 receiving yards on Sunday. Regardless of yardage, one more great game could make him a First-Team All-Pro. That would kick in the incentives anyway.
Due to those facts, expect another big day against the Jets. And hopefully, more great sideline sound.
