Former Patriots and Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski is training to star in a live Super Bowl commercial for online betting site FanDuel.
With some help from former Patriots and Colts kicker Adam Ventierti, Gronk will attempt to get a field goal live on the airwaves during the big game on Feb. 12.
Even though Gronk was in the Super Bowl, the stakes are high for the ad. If he hits, everyone who places a Super Bowl bet of five dollars or more on FanDuel will win a share of $10 million worth of free bets.
“I love kicking field goals. I used to practice all the time,” Gronk said in an interview with the Associated Press. “This is an opportunity to help my fans out there win $10M in free bets which is mind blowing.”
Gronk says he only made one successful field goal in his career — back in high school.
“Everyone knows I love to have fun and try new ideas,” added Gronk. “Of course I can catch a football, why not try kicking a field goal?”
Gronk still isn’t saying if he’ll officially return to the NFL next season.
