Retired tight end Rob Gronkowski will kick a field goal for $10 million live in FanDuel’s first ad during the upcoming Super Bowl.
The fun-loving “Gronk” hung his cleats up after he and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were bounced in the second round of the NFC playoffs. Now, he is back to try his hand as a kicker. If he converts from 25 yards, he will win FanDuel bettors $10 million in free bets, and if he misses, well, let’s hope he practiced his smile.
All FanDuel customers who bet on the Super Bowl will be enrolled in the opportunity to win a cut of the $10 million prize. Their fate will be determined at some point in the third quarter.
