There has been a growing concern among New England Patriots fans and the like that Rob Gronkowski is getting carried away with his passion for raging. Another offseason has begun with one of Gronk’s limbs in a cast. Like his injured ankle last year, Gronkowski’s surgically-repaired forearm doesn’t appear to be slowing him down when it comes to partying shirtless and wrestling with his brother in Las Vegas. Some view Gronk’s antics as childish. Others, like Patriots guard Logan Mankins, feel they are pretty harmless. “As long as he’s not getting DUIs and doing things that are against the law…” Mankins said Tuesday according to ESPNBoston.com’s Mike Reiss. “I don’t think he’s hurting anyone. Hopefully he doesn’t hurt his arm. Then that would be bad. Gronk is a big meathead that likes to party and play football.” Considering he already broke his arm twice, it’s the arm that most Patriots fans are concerned about. I’m sure the team shares some of their concerns. In terms of staying out of trouble with the law, Mankins is right. Gronkowski is 23 years old. He has been criticized by people like this former Patriots linebacker for being irresponsible, but we like to think of him more as a person who cherishes his youth. As long as he’s working out on the side and doing what he needs to be doing to prepare for 2013, Gronk should be allowed to enjoy himself during his free time.
