AROUND THE WEB:

-- More details are emerging in the case of Rob Gronkowski’s house burglary, including a portion of his 911 call upon realizing he had been robbed.

"This isn't an emergency ... this is just uh, Rob Gronkowski calling. And while I was gone, my whole house got robbed while on the Super Bowl trip and I just got back,” Gronkowski said to the dispatcher.

The heavily-redacted police report was also released.

According to police, the robbery occurred on Sunday night at 8:50 p.m., which was during the Super Bowl. Gronkowski and his housemates, Nathan Ruckdaschel and Rob Goon, are listed as victims.

Police responded to the house at 6:20 p.m. on Monday. Gronkowski’s bedroom was locked and secure but the door to Goon’s room was broken down. The thieves, who broke a window to enter the house, also entered Ruckdaschel’s room.

The investigation is ongoing.

-- Julian Edelman couldn’t be on the field for the Super Bowl but he made his presence known in the stands.

The wide receiver, who has been sidelined with a torn ACL since the preseason, started multiple “Let’s Go Dola” chants during the big game to support his “best friend” Danny Amendola.

Even though the Patriots lost, the good news is Edelman reportedly is “so healthy” he feels he could’ve played in the Super Bowl. He is expected to be back at the start of next season.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "During Super Bowl week I never attended any concert, missed curfew, or participated (in) any of the ridiculous activities being reported. They are not only false, but hurtful, to me and my family. Although I wish I could have contributed more to help my team win, I have to get ready for the next opportunity." -- Malcolm Butler, in an Instagram post regarding his benching during the Super Bowl
