Chris Gronkowski was traded to the Denver Broncos from the Indianapolis Colts on Wednesday in exchange for cornerback Cassius Vaughn.

The Denver Broncos picked up fullback Chris Gronkowski in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts, the team announced Wednesday. In exchange, the Broncos gave up cornerback Cassius Vaughn. John Elway, the Broncos' executive vice president of football operations, explained the move via twitter.

Gronkowski is probably better known for being the younger brother of Dan and older brother Rob Gronkowski than for what he has done on the football field up to this point. With just 52 total yards of offense in his two years in the league, Chris will look to earn his paycheck in other ways on the football field, namely pass-blocking for Peyton Manning and opening running lanes.

Vaughn has 28 tackles and an interception in 22 career games played in his two years in the league.
