At times Rob Gronkowski seems just like a big kid himself, so itâ€™s probably pretty appropriate that he joined eight teammates earlier this season in helping build a playground in Worcester.
The Patsâ€™ players joined about 200 other volunteers in the effort, creating a new playground fresh from scratch for local youths. And, as the players admit, theyâ€™re just as competitive off the field and playing handyman as they are on Sundays. Check out the Patriotsâ€™ charitable efforts in the video above.
