Rob Gronkowski, speaking publicly for first time since surgery, to appear on Mut & Merloni

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski [1] will speak publicly for the first time since undergoing surgery for a broken bone in his left forearm — suffered in the Patriots’ final regular-season game — appearing on the Mut & Merloni show on Thursday at 11 a.m.

Gronkowski, who managed to appear in just two games after initially breaking the forearm, has been in attendance at the Super Bowl [2] festivities  in New Orleans this week. (See Twitter photo taken by Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald below.)
