Rob Gronkowski Says He'd Never Risk His Health

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is known for his immature offseason habits. Wrestling on stages in clubs while in a cast, drinking and partying to the wee hours of the night. But while some worry that he is putting himself in trouble, the Gronk went  on ESPN’s Mike and Mike to assure us, that would not happen.

“They’re my fans. They’re looking out for me, they’re big fans of the Patriots, they just want to see the team do well and I totally understand where the fans are coming from,” Gronkowski said, via PFT. “I would never do that, put myself in jeopardy.”

The problem is, simply by putting yourself in those situations you are sacrificing total control and are in fact putting yourself in jeopardy. It’s like the old saying, nothing good happens after midnight. By being out late and around other inebriated people you are putting yourself in jeopardy.

But despite the wrestling and antics, Gronkowski says his arm is healing well and he can begin a more normal training regiment soon.

“The arm is feeling way better than it was during the playoffs, and in the regular season when I broke it,” Gronkowski said. “When my trainers give me the good to go, hopefully in the next couple weeks, as soon as possible, I can get going again.”
