Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski finds himself a topic of conversation today because of photos that adult film actress Bibi Jones posted via Twitter of the two of them.
The Patriots had the week off, and Gronkowski reportedly returned to Arizona, where he played college football at the University of Arizona.
Jones posted two photos. In both, she's wearing a Gronkowski Patriots jersey, and the captions are "Follow my favorite football player @@RobGronkowski" and "Getting hyped with @RobGronkowski."
Update, 9:34 a.m.: In an interview on The Sports Hub this morning, Jones said she met Gronkowski through mutual friends, and the photos were an attempt by Gronkowski to gain more Twitter followers. She also said he carries his jersey around for photo opps.
"He was very polite, and such a gentleman," Jones said.
