Rob Gronkowski has had his fun this summer, and now the Patriots are telling him to back off the throttle.
According to a league source for the Boston Globe, the team has told its young fun-loving tight end that the "Summer of Gronk" is over.
From the Globe:
After posing nude for ESPN The Magazines Body Issue and partying at events for the issue and the ESPYs (Gronkowski was up for two awards but was shut out), and co-hosting Access Hollywood Live in recent days things that seem un-Patriot-like dont be surprised if he lays low for the next couple of weeks.
Bad news for folks who like following Gronk's off-the-field pursuits. Good news for anyone who thinks the big guy has been spreading himself a little thin before training camp, which begins July 25.
