Rob Gronkowski of the Tampa Bay Bucs is now a Guinness Book Of World Records holder…by catching a football that was dropped out of a helicopter!

The chopper was 600-feet in the air…making this the longest catch in world history.  Gronk celebrated by spiking the ball and celebrating like only Gronk can.

Let’s face it…Gronk is a future hall-of-famer…one of the most amazing tight ends ever…but he’s also Gronk.   I don’t even know what that means.   But I’m standing behind it.   Check out the clips below!

This reminds me of a couple of years ago….when Peyton Manning threw a pass to Cris Carter off of a skyscraper in New York.   But I’ll admit…the chopper was way higher!
