Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has caught some flak in the past week or so, because of video that has surfaced of Gronk partying and wrestling in Vegas with a broken forearm.
No Gronk didn’t break any crimes, and it is the offseason, so he should be able to enjoy himself. There are some who feel that Gronkowski is walking a tightrope and at some point his behavior and antics may turn into something bad.
Former Patriots linebacker Willie McGinest knows the Patriot way and according to the Boston Herald, think someone should talk to Gronkowski before something bad happens.
“This kid’s had a lot of success at an early age. He’s probably one of the best tight ends in the league. But he seems to be wired a little different. He did it at the party after they lost the Super Bowl to the Giants where it was kind of the same thing,” McGinest said, via the Boston Herald. “Certain people handle things differently. But the pile-driving, that wrestling move could have been dangerous to him … I don’t think he should be out doing wrestling moves. It doesn’t make sense especially if you’re in a cast still healing. He’s a vital part of that offense; they need him. They’re paying him a lot of money. He can’t put himself in certain situations where he can possibly hurt himself. He has to be careful. He has to be smarter than that.”
McGinest did reiterate that he thinks someone such as Tom Brady or Bill Belichick will address Gronkowski at some point.

Single dudes in their twenties, especially those with seven-figure salaries, usually like to party. I don't blame them. As a fan, I accept that. This silly notion that those who play for our favorite teams can't have social lives infuriates me. So long as he isn't breaking laws or risking his life or career, what a player does in the offseason or even on Friday nights...
Willie McGinest believes it’s time for someone to step up and address Rob Gronkowski about his behavior.
“If there were things that needed to be addressed when I was there, I’d have a conversation with that player, or we had other leaders in the locker room who would talk to him,” McGinest told the Boston Herald on Friday.
Well then, who should speak out and help straighten...
Rob Gronkowski is a one-of-a-kind person and player, and the New England Patriots have had very few like him in the past. For the most part, Bill Belichick expects his team to keep a low profile and stay out of the public spotlight — even during the offseason. Gronk has no interest in doing that, and former Patriots linebacker Willie McGinest feels that it is time for the team...

Last week we brought you one of many stories involving Rob Gronkowski and his late-night-drunken-dancing-partying antics. Although he’s never been arrested, nor charged with anything, some people still want to put his social life under a microscope and question if he is the guy for the oft-calm New England Patriots.

After Rob Gronkowski’s latest off-the -field antics that involved him pulling off a wrestling move on a nightclub stage, former Patriots linebacker Willie McGinest believes quarterback Tom Brady needs to talk to Gronk.
“The only guy on that offense that could probably say anything is Tom,” McGinest said. “He has the years in. Or maybe Wes (Welker). It has to be guys (Gronkowski...
A year after catching flak for being filmed dancing on a badly sprained ankle following the New England Patriots' Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants, Rob Gronkowski TMZed it up again. This time around, the tight end was filmed performing wrestling moves at a Vegas nightclub while sporting a cast on his twice-surgically repaired forearm, which was broken in two different...
The New England Patriots are faced with a tough decision, do they re-sign Wes Welker, who will become an unrestricted free agent in March, do they franchise tag him or do they release him?
Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe believes the Patriots should release Welker along with wide receiver Brandon Lloyd.
"We’ve addressed this before, but the Patriots have to be discussing...
Last February Patriots' tight end Rob Gronkowski made headlines with his antics at a post-Super Bowl party in Miami. Almost a year to the date, Gronk is at it again, this time in Las Vegas.
If Gronk could spike the “Patriot Way” he probably would.

Longtime Patriot's defensive star Willie McGinest is the latest to chime in on the Gronk criticism for his post-Super Bowl performance in New Orleans. Speaking in reference to the latest episode, McGinest suggested that one of Gronk's peers needs to step in as a leader and talk to him:
