Former New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers star tight end Rob Gronkowski has shared his thoughts on the NFL showing Taylor Swift very often. The league has been under fire from football fans saying that they are showing the pop star more than the actual game and the players. Be prepared Swifties, because you probably will not like what Gronk had to say.

Rob Gronkowski Comments
The retired star was asked about the league’s focus on Swift since she was rumored and later confirmed to be dating Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. Gronk made an appearance on FanDuel TV’s “Up & Adams” this past week and shared his thoughts on the situation. This is what he had to say:
“Yes, you can show her. Maybe haver her perform a song now since they’re hyping her up every single week. But we want more football! Yes, it’s fine that you show her, but not every single play.”
Even though his thoughts towards the league broadcasting Swift 24/7 are a little harsh, his thoughts on Kelce building a relationship are quite the opposite. Gronk had high praise for his fellow tight end:
“You know, it’s wonderful, he deserves it all. He’s had seven 1,000-yard seasons in a row. Wide receivers barely have seven 1,000-yard seasons in a row. He deserves every commercial, and he’s a good looking man, so he deserves any lady that he wants to get.”
“And he can move. Like I said, I had a dance-off with him, and his hips can groove, so it’s great to see him doing his thing on and off the field. He deserves it all.”
Travis Kelce’s 2023
Kelce is coming off one of his biggest performances of the season last week against the Los Angeles Chargers. He amounted to 179 receiving yards and a touchdown in the 31-17 win. It will be interesting to see how his season and relationship with Swift progresses.
