No Gronk TV, for now

Well, it was fun to consider while it lasted.

On Wednesday, Darren Rovell reported that “William Morris Endeavor is working with Rob Gronkowski & his family to develop a TV show, a book & speaking engagements.”  Thursday morning, Robert Bailey of Rosenhaus Sports Representation told PFT that it’s not true.

Bailey, a former NFL cornerback who serves as the president of Rosenhaus Sports, said that neither Rob Gronkowski nor anyone in his family has hired William Morris to do anything on their behalf.  Bailey also said that Rob is focused on his football career, and that he has no plans to launch a TV show or write a book.

Rosenhaus Sports represents Rob Gronkowski and his football-playing brothers.  Earlier this month, it was reported that the Patriots have applied the brakes to the so-called Summer of Gronk, which has featured the Pats tight end assuming a very high profile.

Of course, none of this means that Rob won’t eventually get involved in other things.  For now, the one thing he’s involved in is football.

UPDATE 2:03 p.m. ET:  In response to ongoing confusion regarding whether WME represents any, some, or all of the Gronkowskis, Bailey tells PFT in unambiguous terms that neither Rob nor any of his family members are represented by William Morris Endeavor.
