New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski issued an apology to owner Robert Kraft. Why's he sorry? Photographs of Gronkowski with porn star Bibi Jones surfaced on Twitter during the bye week. Jones posted a photo of herself wearing Gronkowski's jersey while posed with the tight end. Gronkowski is shirtless in the photo.

"I didn't send anything to hurt the reputation of anyone on the New England Patriots or on behalf of Robert Kraft," Gronkowski told reporters, per ESPN Boston. "That's all, just a simple picture, that's all. From here on out, I'm just here to talk about the Pittsburgh Steelers and the big game this weekend."

Jones commented on the photo in a radio interview, saying: "I went into the room to take a picture with him and he said, 'Put on my jersey,' I asked him, 'Can I put these on my Twitter?' He was cool with it because I have more Twitter followers than him and he wanted me to get him more Twitter followers. I wish something happened, but nothing happened."

Gronkowski said he didn't mean to do anything wrong.

"Not intending to hurt anyone or ruin the reputation of the New England Patriots in any way," Gronkowski said.
