Whether it is continuing to play while concussed, hanging out with a porn star or just generally being a one-man fiesta, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has made it clear that he is up for just about anything.
Up next, the 23-year-old will be baring it all at a newsstand near you. ESPN has revealed that Gronkowski will be one of six athletes featured on the cover of the latest edition of ESPN The Magazine's "Body Issue."
It had previously been announced that Gronk would be photographed for the 2012 edition of the magazine that features athletes showing off their incredible physiques, joining Maurice Jones-Drew, Tyson Chandler and Abby Wambach.
When these first participants were named in June, the magazine's editor in chief, Chad Millman told The Associated Press that they target athletes who "just recently popped." Based on these early images that have been released they certainly found the men and women who fit the bill.
Chandler will also appear on one of the six special covers. According to ESPN Front Row, the other four spots will go to Jose Bautista, Daniela Hantuchova, Candace Parker and Ronda Rousey.
"We had an overwhelming number of truly amazing photographs to choose from this year, which is why there are six covers, explained ESPN The Magazine Deputy Editor Neely Lohmann.
The 2011 issue included photographs of Hope Solo, Blake Griffin and Jose Reyes.
