Rumors of Zach Wilson sleeping with his Mom’s best friend spread like wildfire.  

Of course, recently retired NFL star Rob Gronkowski heard the rumors surrounding Zach Wilson. During an appearance on “Fox NFL Kickoff” Sunday, the former Buccaneers tight end participated in a “Glass Half-Full or Half-Empty” segment where he took a brutal shot at the Jets quarterback, who was accused by an ex-girlfriend of being involved with a friend of his mother.

“I’m going to go half-full, as long as they can get their QB’s head in the playbook instead of outside at parent-teacher conferences,” Gronkowski said.

Watch below:

His Fox Sports colleagues were lost for words as they clearly knew what was he alluding to as well. The 33-year-old Gronk returned to Fox in October, roughly four months after he announced his second retirement from the NFL.

As for Wilson, he came into this season as a likely MVP candidate, not because people thought he would make a leap with his play, but because of the rumor surrounding him.

His ex-girlfriend Abbey Gile started the rumor after she began a relationship with his former BYU teammate and roommate, who just happened to play for Washington.

Wilson, who was selected second overall by the Jets in 2021, has been linked to New Jersey-based influencer Nicolette Dellanno and have been seen out in public together.

The former BYU product is looking to bounce back after a 22-17 loss to the Patriots.
