Rob Gronkowski’s conditioning appeared suspect during a recent appearance on “Whose Line Is It Anyway.”
Gronk, who’s stated on many occasions this offseason he’s, “Just trying to get better every day,” and “Trying to improve every day” and “Listening to his coaches and trainers and working at getting better and improving every day”, appeared to hit a wall midway through his dance performance on the improvisational comedy show.
Whether that will be a concern when the season begins remains to be seen, but Gronkowski clearly has work to do.
One encouraging aspect of the performance was the power displayed by Gronkowski. He casually stiff-armed comedian Wayne Brady at least 12 feet during the performance and bench-pressed the other dude he was performing with.
It’s logical to speculate Gronkowski’s torn ACL suffered last December will keep him sidelined into the upcoming regular season. After back surgery and several arm surgeries in the 2013 offseason, Gronkowski opened the season on the Patriots active roster but didn’t play until Week 7.
It’s difficult to interpret his dancing as a positive or negative sign for his availability at the start of this year.
