Rob Gronkowski, the New England Patriots' tight end, has apologized for pictures taken with porn actress BiBi Jones that she  posted by Jones on her Twitter account

The photos were taken just last week and feature Gronkowski posing with Jones. Both photos feature Jones wearing Gronkowski's jersey, while one picture also has the New England football player shirtless.

Gronkowski recently met with Patriots owner Robert Kraft regarding the photographs and, in a recent statement, apologized to the team and the organization.

I didn't intend anything to hurt the reputation of anyone on the New England Patriots or on behalf of Robert Kraft. It was just a simple picture and that's all, said the second-year player.

The question that some people may be asking is why Gronkowski even needs to apologize for the incident. There are no reports suggesting anything other than a casual photograph session; although the photos may lead to some people to speculate.

Gronkowski was drafted by the Patriots in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Meanwhile, BiBi Jones is the youngest star to be signed by Digital Playground, an American pornographic movie studio.
