Found October 02, 2012 on Bush League Chronicle:

At 6-foot, 6-inches tall and nearly 270 pounds, New Englands Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski can put away his fair share of groceries.

Despite raking in a little over a half million dollars in salary this year, the big guy still likes to keep his eye out for a good bargain.
