06:57 AM ET 07.12 | After a somewhat tumultuous offseason of his own, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski emerged Thursday to answer questions about his team's latest issues. Gronk's former tight end tag-team partner, Aaron Hernandez, is in jail after being charged with murder, and Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard was arrested and cited for driving under the influence Thursday in Lincoln, Neb. Gronkowski, who did not have a cast on his surgically repaired arm, said he was in "great spirits" while promoting his book "Growing up Gronk," but he had less to say when NFL.com's Albert Breer asked him about the NFL's crime problems. "Ask Roger Goodell," Gronkowski said. As for Dennard and Hernandez, Gronkowski said, "I don't have any comment on that."

Guy writes a book "Growing up Gronk?" What a tool.

Keep partying it up dude, your time is almost up.

Suddenly, in the span of a very short time, Pats look very vulnerable, don;t they? Poor Tom Brady, seems like the only guy interested in playing the game without self-promotion.

It is a " pop up " book.

It's part of a full court press by Gronk's agent. Attacking the public from all sides.

Maybe it's a DIY book that the Patriots should be reading

Really, what was the reporter expecting him to say, words of wisdom?

Say what you want about Gronk, he followed the party line on this one. You can copy and paste his responses and just change the name of the Patriot making the statement and you will be done. They aren't going to talk about any of this.

Started? On the news the other day, the reporter mentioned he only had to move over one room to get from the Marathon Bomber to Whitey Bulger.

And, get this, they're digging up Albert DeSalvo, who confessed to the Boston Strangler killings. He's been dead since 1973, and they're still going after him based on DNA.

With the way prosecuters are losing cases these days, I guess they are going after a dead guy because he's not likely to hire a very good legal team.

Based on the various prosecution teams we seem to field recently, that still doesn't guarantee a conviction.

Sure, he can't claim to be not guilty now, can he?

Then you'll love this. The police followed DeSalvo's nephew around until he discarded a water bottle, then picked it up to get a DNA sample so they could get a close-enough family match to justify exhuming the body. They family wasn't happy about that.
