Travis Kelce is compared to Rob Gronkowski on a daily basis.

They’re both hulking, carefree, deceptively athletic tight ends who could crush 90 percent of us into fine powders.

Gronkowski owns the edge in a number of statistics, but he has also participated in 172 more snaps. Kelce bests the veteran in percentage (78) of targets caught and missed tackles (11). His 278 yards after the catch also leads the league, averaging 3.4 more than the Patriots’ playmaker.

While Bowe has never had the luxury of a consistent No. 2 receiver, he and Kelce are evolving into a crowd-pleasing tag team.
