Rob Gronkowski Hub
There is a t-shirt bromance going on at the New England Patriots based on the recent Macauley Culkin/Ryan Gosling lovefest.
On Monday, receiver Julian Edelman wore a t-shirt emblazoned with the image of a shirtless Rob Gronkowski.
And yesterday, the tight end answered back.
Check out his response, AFTER THE JUMP...
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski tells Stephen A. Smith and Ryan Ruocco on ESPN Radio New York that he's fine with a gay player on the team:
"I got this question before, about a year ago, and I basically will say the same answer that I did a year ago. You've got to accept the player. Everyone has their own ways to live their life and as long as he's respecting me, keeping distance, respecting myself, I'll respect him back. If he's being a great teammate and he's a guy on the field doing a great job, well then you've got nothing to complain about. He's another teammate and another friend."
Asked if other players would respond the same way, Gronkowski adds:
"I never went around asking players on my team or in the NFL, 'Hey, what would you think if someone on our team is gay? How would you take it?' I never thought of that, and never asked anyone that and never tried to find out if there is [a gay player] on the team. If someone is on my team and they are a great teammate and a great player on the field, helping the team win -- that's all you've got to ask for."

After initially snubbing him because he was "afraid of saying something wrong", New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski answered a couple of questions for Outsports' Cyd Zeigler at the ESPY's:
He gave me time for two questions.
“Have you ever played with a gay teammate?” I asked.
He thought for a moment and said he didn’t know of any.
“How would you feel if one of your teammates on the Patriots came out of the closet this season?”
This time he didn’t pause.
“If that’s how they are, that’s how they are,” Gronkowski said. “I mean, we’re teammates so, as long as he’s being a good teammate and being respectful and everything, that’s cool.”
