(CBS) – New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski spoke at the University of Rhode Island Thursday night and he raised some eyebrows with a comment about Tim Tebow.
Gronk was taking questions from URI students at Edwards Auditorium, when one decided to play a controversial game with him.
The game, which can’t be named here, presents the contestant with the names of three people.
The contestant is asked to choose which one to marry, which one to “have a roll in the hay with,” and which one to kill.
Gronkowski’s choices: Betty White, Jets head coach Rex Ryan, and his new quarterback, Tim Tebow.
“I would ‘F’ Tebow, to take his virginity,” Gronk told the audience.
That grew a big laugh from the crowd, although it’s not clear who the Pats tight end chose for the other two options.
It was all in good fun, but Gronk’s response will likely draw some criticism from the Tebow followers.
