Not talking about controversial topics? That's the Patriot Way.

And it's the way Rob Gronkowski handled a question about Aaron Hernandez in an interview that aired on CBS This Morning. The Patriots tight end, in New York with his brothers and his father to promote the newly-published book "Growing Up Gronk," wanted nothing to do with any questions about Hernandez, the former Patriots tight end who is currently in jail after being charged with murder.

“Next question,” Gronkowski replied when asked by CBS newsman Don Dahler about the Hernandez saga. “I learned that from (agent) Drew Rosenhaus.”

When asked how he felt when hearing the news about his former teammate, Gronkowski answered with another “next question.”

Then when Dahler shifted the Hernandez inquiry to Rob’s father, Gord, who also said he wouldn’t comment, Rob stood up and nearly walked out of the interview, but sat back down when Dahler changed the subject.
