There is plenty of team-related drama that goes Miami Heat Hoodie down in the NFL during Week 17, as witne sed by . But there is also individual drama as well, with players battling to achieve season-long contract incentives.One such player was tight end , who came into Week 17 needing either 11 receptions or 116 receiving yards against the in Week 17 in order to trigger a $2 million incentive bonus.Unfortunately for Gronk's wallet, his name is .That's right -- not even a target for the tight end.One could easily picture the Patriots leadership doing a Monty Burns "exccccccellent" finger thing at the idea of stashing away $2 million here, but it's not like Gronk was one reception away from achieving the bonus and suddenly benched. 11 catches is a monster game; led the Pats with 11 targets Maurice Harkless Jersey against the Jets and he still didn't hit the catch or yards number. was a little bit off, probably because he was wearing a scuba suit during an incredibly cold situation, and the Patriots weren't winging the ball all over the place trying to run up the score. They wanted the No. 1 seed in the AFC and they wanted to Dwyane Wade Jersey get out of dodge.Plus, Gronk hurt himself with his absurd dirty hit on cornerback during Week 13 that got him suspended for Week 14 (he was back dominating against the in Week 15). If he goes off for 116 yards in Week Ryan Anderson Jersey 14, he's $2 million richer.There's some good news too: he unlocked a $3.5 million incentive bonus by going over 1,000 yards for the year. And, if he ends up being named to the All-Pro team, Gronk would unlock the $2.5 million anyway. That might be tough with and lingering. Gronk led all tight ends in receiving yards with his 1,084 and was tied with eight receiving touchdowns with Kelce and Ertz behind (10).On the bright side, Gronk finished with a very nice number of Tyler Herro Jersey catches this year. I asked Gronk if he knew how many catches he had this season:Smirked, Yeah, 69. Jeff Howe (@jeffphowe) The $2 million would have been a nice bonus to unlock, but Gronk will probably survive.
