New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski may just be the most charismatic star in the NFL. On the field he's arguably one of, if not the best, at his position. Gronk has been absolutely tearing up the league since 2011. The Patriots took the 6'6" 265 lb beast in the second round of the 2010 draft out of the University of Arizona. He has over 6,000 receiving yards to date and recently broke the New England franchise record for touchdowns with his 69th of his career (68 receiving, 1 rushing). In 2011 he became the first tight end in NFL history to lead the league in receiving TD's. When he is on his game, Gronk is nearly unstoppable. His dominant play makes it easy for him to be a fan favorite, but everything he does off the field tells us so much about his fun loving personality. 

1) He genuinely enjoys spending time with the fans. 

He recently went 'Undercover with Lyft' and the results were hilarious. He made plenty of jokes about his quarterback Tom Brady and himself too...


2) The big man can EAT and he'll take on a challenge.

Gronk made an appearance on the 'First We Feast' YouTube show 'Hot Ones' where athletes and celebrities are interviewed while eating spicy wings. He openly answers questions about his family, his love of old school wrestling, and other topics as the wings continue to get hotter and hotter. Once again, his personality makes this video a gem...


3) He played 'Mortal Kombat' with Conan O'Brien and Marshawn Lynch.

Yes, you read that correctly. Prior to Super Bowl XLIX which featured the Patriots and Seahawks, Conan O'Brien brought a member from each side to play video games during his 'Clueless Gamer' segment. Gronkowski's Pats would ultimately win the Super Bowl but this collaboration between these three characters is incredible...


4) Gronk makes time for important causes and making a difference.


5) He's on standby for his quarterback.

You'll find him spending time and having fun with the likes of Snoop Dogg and David Ortiz off the field. However, on some of those off days he's ready to train with the man who has thrown 67 of his 68 receiving touchdowns, Tom Brady...
