Baby Gronk is officially a Patriot. Sort of.

Glenn Gronkowski, the youngest brother of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, joined the team’s practice squad on Saturday, per a source with knowledge of the situation.

Undrafted in April after playing college football at Kansas State, Glenn Gronkowski signed with the Bills. He made it to the 53-man roster at the outset of the season, but he later was waived. The Patriots gave him a workout last month.

His first game as an extended member of the team comes Sunday, when the Bills visit the Patriots.

Rob and Glenn are two of the Brothers Gronk, a free-spirited and fun-loving foursome that seems destined to someday star in a reality show. For now, half of them are part of the same team in America’s ultimate reality show.
