This week, Jason is joined by four time Super Bowl champion, five time NFL Pro Ball selection, 11 year NFL Veteran, future first ballot football Hall of Famer, Rob Gronkowski!
Rob is regarded as one, if not the best, tight end to ever play the game. He spent 11 years in the NFL playing for the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers while earning a combined $70+ million in just NFL contract money. Contrary to the stigma of professional athletes going broke after their playing career, Rob put together a financial plan throughout his career that allowed him to strictly live off the money he made from endorsements, other revenue streams, and successfully invested his contract money for the future.
Gronk gives insight to why he believes in playing all the sports while growing up and not specializing in one sport until college, how he knew he always wanted to be a pro in some sport, when and why he decided to cut back on partying, how he handles nervousness, and why he wanted to ensure that he could live off his NFL income for the rest of his life. Rob also reveals how he was a troublemaker growing up, why he's glad he didn’t go to a college with a bigger football program, why he doesn’t want to take anything for free, how he prefers to be low key when traveling, and how he ended up falling asleep on the floor during his pre-draft visit with New England. Who did Gronk predict would win the Super Bowl? Which misconceptions does Rob clear up about himself? When did he know that he was going to attend University of Arizona? What year did he not play football in college?
Gronk reveals all that and so much more in another episode you can’t afford to miss!
