Rob Gronkowski did more than his fair share to prove he is worth more than his $4.4 million rookie contract. On Friday, the Patriots showed they agreed, reportedly signing Gronkowski to a new contract.
The Pats reportedly signed Gronk to a six-year, $54 million deal, making him the highest paid tight end in NFL history. Last season, Gronkowski caught 17 touchdown passes and rushed for one more, breaking the single-season touchdown record by a tight end.
The tight end is known for more than just his dominating presence on the football field, though. Gronkowski has made headlines for his partying, tweets to celebrities, and his on-camera performances in interviews and on TV shows.
So with all this money, it will be anyone's guess as to what Gronk might spend it on.
