New England Patriots offensive lineman Logan Mankins told Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com that he doesn’t have a problem with the way tight end Rob Gronkowski has been acting off the field. “I know we are referring to Gronk and partying and doing wrestling moves and stuff. I think Gronk’s having fun,” Mankins said Tuesday during a charitable appearance at the Kraft Family Blood Donor Center. “The headlines might not be what a lot of people want, but at least he’s not getting DUIs or doing things that are against the law. I don’t think he’s hurting anyone. “Hopefully he doesn’t hurt his arm because then that would be bad. You know Gronk, he is a big meathead that likes to party and play football. I think that’s what he’s doing. “When he starts breaking the law, then that would be definitely something we’d have to look into.” Mankins is right, Gronk isn’t techically doing anything wrong off the field, but it doesn’t looks good when an NFL player making millions to play football is doing wrestling moves on the stage at a Las Vegas night club.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
