FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – One follow-up to Wednesday’s story with tight end Rob Gronkowski apologizing to owner Robert Kraft (link here):
Gronkowski was interviewed on 98.5 The Sports Hub this morning, on the “Toucher and Rich Show”, and he described the meeting as one in which he bumped into Kraft.
“I wasn’t asked to apologize to anyone,” he told the show (audio link here). “I just saw Mr. Kraft in the hallway. We had a brief discussion and that’s all it was.”
Gronkowski relayed that Kraft offered him advice which he appreciated. Gronkowski described the advice as “just be careful, just always watch out.”
Gronkowski's meeting with reporters in the locker room Wednesday looked orchestrated by team staffers to address the issue, and created the perception in some circles that he might have been called "upstairs" to talk about online pictures in which he was standing next to an adult film star.
Gronkowski's story this morning on 98.5 The Sports Hub counters that line of thinking.
