Patriots' Rob Gronkowski parties hard - while spending none his NFL salary


He's a dangerous tight end for the New England patriots, a party animal, and a savvy financial manager.

Rob Gronkowski writes in his upcoming book "It's Good to be Gronk," that he has not touched a cent of his NFL salary, according to the New York Daily News.

Instead, his slush fund comes from his endorsements, and he saves a lot by having simple tastes.

“I live off my marketing money and haven't blown it on any big-money expensive cars, expensive jewelry or tattoos and still wear my favorite pair of jeans from high school," Gronkowski writes.

Don't be concerned about Gronk's off-field partying taking a toll on his play.

He explained his work and life balance best to Bill Belichick.

"Coach Belichick was standing right next to me and said, 'Rob, you are one of the hardest workers I've seen, and you're always working hard when you're here, but when you're not here ... I don't know about your craziness off the field, the messing.' I started laughing and told him, 'The fun stuff makes me grind harder, Coach.' He shook his head as he walked off and said, 'Whatever works for you.' "
