FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski says he didn't intend to hurt the team's reputation when he posed for photographs with an adult film performer. The performer, BiBi Jones, posted two pictures of her and Gronkowski on her Twitter account on Monday. She was wearing Gronkowski's Patriots jersey in both of them. In one, he was shirtless. They were taken during the Patriots bye last week. Gronkowski, having an outstanding year in his second NFL season, met with team owner Robert Kraft afterward. Gronkowski said Wednesday that being in the pros is a learning process. "I didn't intend anything to hurt the reputation of anyone on the New England Patriots or on behalf of Robert Kraft," he said. "It was just a simple picture and that's all."
