Can the NFL handle another Gronkowski? It's a big question, but the Patriots may be about to find out.

This is after it was revealed that Kansas State fullback Glenn Gronkowski - brother of perennial Pro Bowler and All-Pro tight end Rob - is meeting with his brother's team at the Senior Bowl this week.

Speaking in Mobile, Alabama as some of college football's top players try to impress NFL scouts and coaches alike, the younger Gronk revealed he had already secured himself a chat with Pats' head honchos on Wednesday night.

The big question remains: would Glenn actually want to play for the Patriots - potentially in the shadow of his older brother? The answer is a resounding yes.

"That would be awesome," he said, via James Walker of ESPN. "I've actually never played with any of my brothers before."

"They've always been too old for me. ... Everyone else has played together, so to be on the same team, that would be a dream come true."

The Patriots have previously had two Gronkowski's on their roster at the same time. In 2011, both Rob and older brother Dan - who was a tight end as well - played five games together for the Massachusetts franchise. 

Fullback or Tight End?

The fullback is somewhat of a dying position in the National Football League today, and the Patriots - a team known for valuing versatility in players - must be pleased by what they are seeing as Glenn has been playing tight end during the Senior Bowl, showing off his pass catching ability.

"It's good to get an opportunity to be out here and show that I can do other stuff, show that I can catch balls and run routes and not just block," Gronk Jr said.

Two Gronkowski's on one team would be incredible. Just think of the partying stories.
