Patriots' Gronkowski directs jab at Tebow

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski had some fun with or took a cheap shot at Tim Tebow, depending on your perspective, during a Q&A session Thursday night at the University of Rhode Island.

Gronkowski was asked to play a risque parlor game in which a contestant is given three people's names and asked to choose one to marry, one to have sex with and one to kill. The names he was given: actor Betty White, Jets coach Rex Ryan and Ryan's new quarterback, Tim Tebow.

"I would (have sex with) Tebow, to take his virginity," Gronkowski said, which drew a big laugh from the crowd. It was not clear whom he chose for the other two options.

Upon further review: Days after he said he was happy Tebow was no longer on the Broncos, Denver receiver Demaryius Thomas tried to clarify: "It wasn't no hard feelings or nothing against Tim. He's a great player. If we had him, I'd love to have him. If we had him still, there wouldn't be no problem me playing with him."
