Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

From the moment he hit the dance floor in the hours after the Super Bowl, we've loved everything about Rob Gronkowski's offseason. The last five months have been such a sweaty blur of shirtlessness and beer-stained Zubaz, we never really gave much thought to how The Gronk Show was being received by Bill Belichick and the Patriots' brass.


The Boston Globe found out, and from the sounds of it, the Pats are like those parents who left the teenagers home alone for the weekend, only to return to discover the house in shambles and some dude nobody knows passed out in the shower:

After posing nude for ESPN The Magazine's "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—don't be surprised if he lays low for the next couple of weeks.

Via a league source, Gronkowski has been told by the team that his summer of Gronk, so to speak, is over.

Gronk's been grounded!
