Patriots’ Gronkowski spends bye week supporting little brother
When their team has a bye, most NFL players head for the first place they can find to get them away from football.
But Rob Gronkowski is not most NFL players.
Instead of hitting a beach or Vegas, Gronkowski instead of choose the chilly night air of Fort Worth, Texas.
With the New England Patriots on a bye, Gronk found this the perfect time to catch his little brother, Kansas State fullback Glenn Gronkowski, as the 7th-ranked Wildcats were one-half of the biggest football game in the country on Saturday as they took on the 6th-ranked TCU Horned Frogs.
Photos surfaced of Gronkowski tailgating before the game outside Amon G. Carter Stadium.

During the game, Gronkowski was spotted at nearly the top of the upper deck of the east side of the stadium, wearing just a ballcap and hoodie.
And, like any true fan, Gronkowski stayed until the bitter end, despite the Cats losing 41-20.
