Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski wasn’t available to help win the Patriots’ fifth Super Bowl, but he said during the team’s victory parade he’d be there for the next one.
Of course, Gronkowski also took off his shirt and chugged some beers, in full Gronk mode for a throng of adoring fans.
“What’s up, Boston? Want to know something? When we get six, your boy right here is going to be part of six, baby,” Gronkowski said, via Phil Perry of CSNNE.com. “This team worked so hard to be where they’re at. I love these guys so much. I know I wasn’t part of playing in the game, but, please, I love being a part of this team, and this is just so amazing.”
With Martellus Bennett about to become an unrestricted free agent, and their lovable star coming off back surgery, the Patriots are going to need more than eight games out of Gronkowski next year.
Like at least nine. You know what I mean, baby.
