Excerpted from the Sunday Football Notes published in the July 15 edition of The Boston Globe:
Last week in this space we gave deserved kudos to the Gronkowski family for donating equipment, money, and time for a workout area at a Buffalo area facility for young people dealing with addiction.
This week, we’re going to talk about Rob Gronkowski again, though perhaps in not so positive a way.
After posing nude for ESPN The Magazine’s “Body Issue” and partying at events for the issue and the ESPYs (Gronkowski was up for two awards but was shut out), and co-hosting “Access Hollywood Live” in recent days — things that seem un-Patriot-like — don’t be surprised if he lays low for the next couple of weeks.
Via a league source, Gronkowski has been told by the team that his summer of Gronk, so to speak, is over.
