Gronkowski mum on celebration, talkative on biscuits


Rob Gronkowski wanted to talk about it. He couldn't but he wanted to. 

"He, uh ... I got yelled at -- we're not allowed to talk about celebrations," the Patriots' tight end said of Brandin Cooks jumping on his back and riding him like a horse after Cooks scored the final touchdown in New England's 35-17 rout of the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. 

"That's what we got told but I kinda want to talk about it. But I kinda don't because I'll get in trouble. I don't know what to do, so ... it just happened on the spot. It wasn't planned. So we'll leave it there (laugh)." 

Gronkowski scored two of New England's five touchdowns, his 16th game with more than one touchdown catch, a club record. 

But he still hasn't had any of Tom Brady's Thanksgiving biscuits. The quarterback came in Friday and boasted about the biscuits he made for dinner the day before. 

"He was bragging about them and I told him to bring some in and he's like, 'They were so good they were all eaten,'" Gronkowski said Friday. "So I told him to make some more. I'm not lying. That's dead serious what happened. "If he doesn't bring some in there's going to be some problems." 

Sunday, the "biscuits" turned out to be touchdown catches. "Guess those were the biscuits," Gronkowski said. "Guess he wasn't making any more so he made up for it. But I still want those biscuits." 

Said Brady: "I gotta do that for him because he wants it, so ... anything he wants I usually try to get for him, so anything to keep him happy." 

Gronkowski also passed Kellen Winslow for 10th place on the all-time tight-end yardage list (6,797), and the Brady-Gronkowski tandem hooked up for its 73rd and 74th touchdowns, passing Drew Brees and Marques Colston for fifth place on that list.
