Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane said he doesn't think New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is "that good," according to ESPN.

The Seahawks will face the Patriots in the Super Bowl on Feb. 1. Lane said the key to stopping Gronkowski is being physical with the tight end. 

"I actually don't think he's that good," Lane said. "He's OK. He does have a big body. But from what I've seen on tape, he doesn't like you putting your hands on him. So if we put our hands on him and shake him up a little bit, he won't catch that many balls."

Gronkowski had 82 catches this season for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns. The 25-year-old is a three-time Pro Bowler and three-time first-team All-Pro.

Seahawks Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman injured his elbow during the NFC Championship Game and was diagnosed with a sprain, but is expected to play in the Super Bowl.
