In an interview Wednesday with Stephen A Smith and Ryan Ruocco on ESPN Radio New York, Gronkowski was asked whether an openly gay player would be accepted in the Patriots’ locker room.
“I got this question before, about a year ago, and I basically will say the same answer that I did a year ago,” Gronkowski answered. “You’ve got to accept the player. Everyone has their own ways to live their life and as long as he’s respecting me, keeping distance, respecting myself, I’ll respect him back.”
“If he’s being a great teammate and he’s a guy on the field doing a great job, well you’ve got nothing to complain about. He’s another teammate and another friend.”
What does he mean by keeping distance? Just curious.
