Rob Gronkowski apologizes for pics with porn star

 Shocker: 20-something guy likes hot blond. (US PRESSWIRE)
Posted by Ryan Wilson

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady spent his bye week in the Bahamas with his family. Teammate Rob Gronkowski, who is single, had no such obligations. Which is good since he hung out with adult film star BiBi Jones during his time off. We know this because a jersey-clad Jones tweeted pictures of a shirtless Gronkowski. (Here's another one, with Gronkowski wearing a t-shirt.)

Seems harmless enough, since they're both adults, nobody broke any laws and, you know, they're both adults.

During his weekly radio appearance on WEEI, Brady was asked if he'd seen the Gronkowski photo in question.

"No, but I've heard. He never ceases to amaze me," Brady said. "I would have guessed there would be pictures of him somehow with his shirt off, posing or something like that. I'm just glad, I'm no longer the one that people are making fun of on my team on a daily basis."

That's a great response because the internet has long taken great pleasure in mocking Brady for any number of reasons.

Brady also figured that Gronkowski would end up hearing from head coach Bill Belichick. "He's used to that walk into coach's office now. He probably knows it's coming. ... He has more fun than anybody I'll tell you that. He doesn't miss a fun day."

On Wednesday, the media asked Gronkowski about his bye-week escapades, and after consulting with the Patriots PR person, he … apologized. Seriously (via WEEI.com).

“I didn’t intend anything or to hurt the reputation of anyone on the New England Patriots, on behalf of Robert Kraft,” said Gronkowski, who acknowledged he met with the Patriots owner and apologized for any bad publicity that resulted from Twitter photos. “That’s all. It was just a simple picture and that’s all, and from here on out, I’m just here to talk about the Pittsburgh Steelers and the big game this weekend.”

Gronkowski added that he regrets the photos going public.

“Just not intended to hurt anyone or ruin the reputation of the New England Patriots in any way,” he said. “It’s a great organization here and a great football program. I can’t wait to get out to practice and get focused on the Pittsburgh Steelers because that’s all I’m worried about and all I care about.”

So what's Gronkowski apologizing for again? Having his shirt off? Who was embarrassed by this? (We were more upset by those topless pictures of Andre Smith at his pro day a few years ago.) Is he the only person in the Pats organization who has heard of the deep, dark underworld of pornography?

It seems a bit much, frankly. Brady's right -- if anything, it's goofy. And if Belichick wants to talk to his tight end about causing distractions, that's fine. But there's nothing to be sorry about. Jones said the two didn't even have sex.

“Nothing happened," she said during an appearance on 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston. "I wish something had, but nothing happened. … I asked if I could have some pictures with him and he said, ‘Yeah, wait, put on my jersey.’ I said, ‘OK.’ We were taking pictures. I asked him if I could put it on Twitter because some athletes wouldn’t want that since I do do adult films and they don’t want to be associated with that. He was really cool with it because I have more Twitter followers than him.”

If Gronkowski is guilty of anything it's trying to increase his Twitter profile. And we're pretty sure he did that.

Thanks for the porn warning on that link you posted.  Maybe next time you can let people know that they're leaving CBS Sports to visit a porn site?

He had a picture of himself taken with a great looking women. So why did they have to comment on her profession? If she was a homemaker, would they have said that? I doubt it. I bet she makes more money then Gronkowski anyway, and pays her taxes, unlike many of those representing us in Washington.

g8torvz:
 That is a great post and the answer is simple...it is just another example of the media trying to  dig up some crap. The Boston media (WEEI radio) is a sports talk show. The talking heads, and self proclaimed experts on this station, love to create controversy to gain a listening audience. This is true with every media outlet but always true in the Boston/New England area. This is why many outstanding athletes want to leave the area. Good things never get attention because only bad sells. Many great atheletes are unprepared or find it difficult to cope with the large market teams. Unfortunately if you want the wealth and notoriety you have to put up with the nonsense.

Rob,

No need to apologize!  You're a human being!  A professional football player, a man, and one of the fan favorites.  Did I mention that she's so hot.  What guy wouldn't want to meet and hang out with her?  There will hot women wanting to befriend you.  Your a pro athlete!  At least you weren't in a strip club, hanging with the posse, starting trouble and toting a hand gun.  This is blown way out of proportion.  You should ask her to be your girlfriend.  You already know how that will work out.  Get her tickets to The Steelers game.  Let Rothlisberger know where she's seated just to give him one reason to take his mind off the game.

If I was Gronkowski, I would make fun of the situation and said that she is going to be his future wife,lol. What? Are some of you people going to tell me who he can and can't married to now? Can't wait for some ex-Patriots who will be on tv telling us that this is not the Patriots way of doing things, lol. Please.
