The Jaguars also have fullback Tommy Bohanon available as a ball carrier, Marrone said. They aren't going to take any chances this early in the season. So he's going to have to come out there and line up on me.

"One out of 10", Gronkowski said.

"It's unrealistic to think that you'll hold a guy like that catchless, so obviously you can't get frustrated", Gipson said. "That statistic right there is unbelievable", Gronkowski said.
