Tom Brady, Gronk named in top 10 of NFL Network's best 100 players list for 2016

For the second year in a row, both Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski were deemed top 10 players by the NFL Network as part of it's best 100 players list for the 2015-16 season.

Gronk finished at No. 9, and Brady finished No. 2, only behind Cam Newton, who took the first overall ranking. Last season, Brady finished ranked at No. 3 and Gronk ranked at No. 10.

In theory, Brady could have taken the top spot in this year's list had a large chunk of his offense not gone down with injuries at different points of the season.
