Gronk gets big billing for just one line on big screen

Gronk gets big billing for just one line on big screen

A feature film with Rob Gronkowski (that wasn't recorded by a cellphone on a cruise ship or a duck boat) opened Friday. And despite having just one line, he's front and center on the poster for "You Can't Have It" - a tale of a final night at a dive bar that doesn't promise to be part of another Best Picture mixup at next year's Oscars.

The Patriots tight end plays one of the largest detectives in law enforcement history and delivers the immortal phrase, “Someone needs to do some explaining. What’s going on?” 

Co-star Joanna Krupa complained to TMZ that the big guy struggled a bit on the set. "We had to do re-take after retake for his one line," she said. 

It's been a busy offseason of movies for Gronkowski as he recovers from back surgery that ended his season well before the Pats' Super Bowl run. He was also in "American Violence", which opened in February.

Report: Patriots in talks with CB Brandon Flowers

In what’s been a somewhat busy offseason for their secondary, veteran cornerback Brandon Flowers is in talks with the Patriots, according to Adam Schefter. 

Flowers, who spent the first six seasons of his career with the Chiefs and last three with the Chargers, was released in March. He is set to meet with the Cardinals this week as well. 

The Pats lost cornerback Logan Ryan this offseason, but landed the top free agent corner on the market in Stephon Gilmore. A potential addition of Flowers might give them an insurance policy if second-year pro Cyrus Jones fails to improve from a dismal rookie season. 

Flowers was limited to just six games last season, as a concussion ended his season in December. He has played in at least 11 games in the rest of his NFL seasons. His lone Pro Bowl nod came in the 2013 season.
