Awwww! It’s Rob Gronkowski holding a kitten (PHOTO)

ESPN has released more photos from that cover shoot with Patriots star Rob Gronkowski.

 "Sometimes it can cause a riot," Gronk said. "People will be running all over the place. Sometimes you can put your hoodie up and sunglasses on and you can sneak through. But it can get crazy with everyone trying to take pictures."

Gronk said that even though social media is so popular, he would never let a fear of going viral stop him from dancing in public.
