6 NFL Comeback Player of the Year Candidates

Sam Spiegelman lists the 6 leadings candidates for NFL comeback player of the year with one surprise on defense.

Rob Gronkowski

1. Rob Gronkowski

After being handicapped by some early season rust and a limited snap count, Gronk is back to being the focal point of the New England Patriots offense, and not surprisingly his re-emergence has coincided with a five-game win streak.

Gronkowski is 12th in the NFL and first among tight ends in receiving this season, having hauled in 49 passes for 663 and eight touchdowns. Coming off multiple injuries to his forearm, then a knee injury that required ACL/MCL surgery — which forced him to miss 21 regular-season gams over the past two years —  Gronkowski has made major hurdles to jump over in order to come back at 100 percent. He defied those odds, re-establishing himself as the NFL’s top tight ned.
