Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has caught some flak in the past week or so, because of video that has surfaced of Gronk partying and wrestling in Vegas with a broken forearm.
No Gronk didn’t break any crimes, and it is the offseason, so he should be able to enjoy himself. There are some who feel that Gronkowski is walking a tightrope and at some point his behavior and antics may turn into something bad.
Former Patriots linebacker Willie McGinest knows the Patriot way and according to the Boston Herald, think someone should talk to Gronkowski before something bad happens.
“This kid’s had a lot of success at an early age. He’s probably one of the best tight ends in the league. But he seems to be wired a little different. He did it at the party after they lost the Super Bowl to the Giants where it was kind of the same thing,” McGinest said, via the Boston Herald. “Certain people handle things differently. But the pile-driving, that wrestling move could have been dangerous to him … I don’t think he should be out doing wrestling moves. It doesn’t make sense especially if you’re in a cast still healing. He’s a vital part of that offense; they need him. They’re paying him a lot of money. He can’t put himself in certain situations where he can possibly hurt himself. He has to be careful. He has to be smarter than that.”
McGinest did reiterate that he thinks someone such as Tom Brady or Bill Belichick will address Gronkowski at some point.
