Gronk is Living Smart

“Gronk” is one of the wilder personas in the league, and a reputation as a party animal has followed him since college.

While Patriot’s Tight End Rob Gronkowski may exude a dumb jock persona, that may not be consistent with reality. In his new autobiography Good to be Gronk, Gronkowski writes:

To this day, I still haven’t touched one dime of my signing bonus or NFL contract money. I live off my marketing money and haven’t blown it on any big-money expensive cars, expensive jewelry or tattoos and still wear my favorite pair of jeans from high school.

With deals with Body Armor and Dunkin’ Donuts, Gronk is probably still living well. Still, after what I wrote about Clinton Portis, it’s refreshing to see an athlete spending smart.

It’s really a shame he plays for the Pats. Gronk is one of the more like able personalities in the league, and has shown that NFL players can have fun without affecting their work life.
