Gronkowski a man in demand

By Mike Reiss



Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been hard to miss over the last week or so, as he is seizing the opportunity to capitalize on his popularity as one of the rising stars in the NFL.

Saturday
Apperance at car dealership in Warwick, RI

Tuesday
Fox 25 television interview

Dunkin' Donuts appearance as spokesman

Autograph signing in Warwick, RI

Wednesday
Spending the day at ESPN (Bristol, Connecticut)

Thursday
Boston.com online chat

Scheduled apperance on site for NFL Network (Culver City, California)

Gronkowski is also scheduled to be at the 2012 Playboy Golf Tournament.

And, of course, there was this puck drop from last month and how he's been calling into radio stations and their celebrity contests (Chicago & Philadelphia).

Some of his appearances have been tied to being a candidate for the Madden cover. Others have been promotional appearances for Xbox 360 "Call of Duty."

Then, as we learned yesterday, there are more appearances ahead.

Add it all up, and it's clear Gronkowski is a man in demand.
