The Summer of Gronk has become the Fall of Gronk.

Rob Gronkowski has made just as much news off the field this summer as he did for anything on the gridiron, but he's all business as the season gets ready to open, and Sports Illustrated is taking note.

The Patriots tight end stares down the nation on the cover of this week's SI NFL preview.

It's not the first time Gronkowski has made a cover this summer. He was also featured in the nude on the cover of ESPN the Magazine's Body Issue.

Check out the SI cover below.
