It’s been an interesting offseason for New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who was caught on video performing a wrestling move in a Las Vegas night club back in February.

The video ended up online, riling a fan base that watched New England’s Super Bowl chances dwindle after he re-injured that arm during the Divisional Round against Houston. Watching him later using that same arm (still shown in a cast in the video) had quite a few people a little irritated, leading to some criticism of the veteran tight end.

Gronkowski told ESPN Radio’s “Mike and Mike in the Morning” in a recent interview that he understood where they were coming from.

“They’re looking out for … they’re big fans of the Patriots and they just want to see the team do well. I totally understand where the fans are coming [from], where they don’t want [me] to put myself in jeopardy of getting hurt. I totally understand that. I would never do that, put myself in jeopardy.”

Gronkowski said his arm is definitely improving and that he’s feeling better.

“I’m doing a lot better, definitely,” said Gronkowski. “Feeling a lot better. My arm is feeling way better than it was during the playoffs and regular season when I broke it.”
