One gets the feeling that, if Rob Gronkowski wasn’t a football player, he’d find a way to make himself a star.
Perhaps as a butt-kicking renegade on the silver screen. Can’t you see him with machine guns in both arms mowing down bad (or good) guys? Move over Rambo.
Who knows? He’ll have to do something after he retires.
Until then, he’ll have to stick with the small screen. The University of Arizona alum is among the athletes promoting ESPN’s upcoming Monday Night Football season.
In the television ad, Gronk shows off his Rambo-like dexterity by eating chicken wings while hanging upside down.
The Patriots’ (and fantasy football) fans are hoping the record-setting tight end is gearing up for another big year in New England.
Gronk led the NFL in receiving touchdowns (17) last year with a single-season record for tight ends.
New England must believe the off-season ankle surgery (the injury which limited him in the Pats’ Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants) isn’t much of a concern. They extended Gronk’s contract this spring to a tune of $54 million.
