Gronk’s teammates to the rescue.
Julian Edelman and Patrick Chung, former New England Patriots teammates of Rob Gronkowski, have dismissed recent claims that Gronkowski partied and passed out on training tables in the team’s locker room.
The allegations were made by an ex-Patriots defensive end, Jake Bequette, during an appearance on the “Prime Time with Alex Stein” podcast.
However, Edelman and Chung, who played with Gronkowski for nine and eight seasons respectively, defended him and called the story “BS.”
Story is BS. Everyone wants to paint Gronk as a party animal. When in reality he was one of the most dedicated teammates I had. https://t.co/mQecYSd4bW

Edelman tweeted, “Everyone wants to paint Gronk as a party animal. When in reality he was one of the most dedicated teammates I had.”
Chung supported Edelman’s stance and suggested that people will do anything for fame.
Exactly. People just want their time of fame. Willing to do anything to get it. https://t.co/AxYr7QEVs0

Gronkowski, widely considered the greatest tight end of all time, has had a vibrant social life but maintained an impressive work ethic.
Despite the claims made by Bequette, Edelman and Chung believe that his social life did not impede Gronkowski’s on-field performance.
