You’ll Never Guess How Much Gronk Says He’d Pay for the Right to Wear No. 69
As you probably know, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is basically a 15-year-old boy in the body of a 6’6″ 265-pound man. As such, he loves 69 jokes. Like, he really loves them. In fact, according to one of his former flames, his mom says he’s been telling 69 jokes since he was three years old.
So, how much money do you think Gronk would be willing to spend to wear no. 69 during a game?
If you guessed “some amount involving the number 69,” you are correct!
The NFL allows players to change numbers whenever they like during the offseason. If a player wants a number currently assigned to someone else, teams generally let them sort it out themselves. Typically this involves negotiating a price—sometimes it’s a steak dinner, sometimes it’s a nice watch, sometimes it’s a dollar value.
On the Patriots, the no. 69 currently belongs to Shaq Mason, while Rob Gronkowski wears no. 87.
During an appearance on Bleacher Report’s Simms And Lefkoe Podcast this week, Gronk was asked how much money he’d be willing to pay for the no. 69.
