Rob Gronkowski appeared with his brothers at a Boston bookstore on Thursday to promote their new book “Growing Up Gronk.” Part of the promotion meant there would be some media members in attendance, so naturally the inquisitive reporters wanted to ask Gronk about much more than his book. But Gronk knows per New England Patriots policy that he’s not supposed to speak about certain issues.
“I got no reaction at all,” Gronk answered when asked about Dennard.
“I got no reaction at all. I’m just here about the book,” Gronk answered when asked about Hernandez.
“I’ve got no reaction about that either right now,” Gronk said about his back.
Gronk did say he was in great spirits and enjoying life a lot more, and he also said Roger Goodell was the man to ask about the league’s off-field problems. For someone whose mouth and reckless actions frequently get him into trouble, Gronk did a great job of showing restraint. You could tell how uncomfortable he was having to keep his answers brief.
