Rob Gronkowski has made it known to the world that he's done with all of the public appearances, nude photo shoots, and reality T.V. judging that made up the "Summer of Gronk". Don't believe him? Well, hear it from the man himself!

"It's all about football, football, football, baby" he said after Friday afternoon's practice at Gillette Stadium

While Gronkowski has spent most of his offseason in the limelight, he's spent just as much time rehabbing the ankle injury that he sustained in the AFC Championship game against the Ravens. Gronkowski underwent offseason surgery to repair the damage that was sustained. While he admits he's not quite 100%, Gronk says it's coming along.

"It's feeling good. It's good to be out there," Gronkowski said when asked about the ankle. "You don't want to be in the training room every day. [I'm] just taking it day by day, doing everything I possibly can out there."

In just his second NFL season with the Patriots last season, Gronkowski took a tremendous step forward, catching 90 passes for 1,327 yards and an NFL tight end record 17 touchdowns. Still, he believes there is room for improvement.

"I look at my whole game sometimes like a weakness," he said. "You know that every time out there you're not going to get open every time, and you want know why you didn't get open every time.

"You can make a lot of good plays, but there's also plays where you didn't get open or blocks, too. I just go back and see why I didn't do it."
