The story behind this ridiculous Gronkowski-Beckham photo | New York Post
The power of Drake may have brought Rob Gronkowski and Odell Beckham Jr. together, but it was a pair of outrageous onesies that solidified their bond. After the NFL superstars shook up social media by posing in the oversized pajamas last month, Gronkowski opened up about what led to the unexpected allegiance between the Patriots tight end and Giants wide receiver. "You know my boy, Stevan Ridley, he used to play for us [New England]. He went to LSU and he's friends with Odell Beckham, who was living at Drake's," Gronkowski said on DraftKings' "Truth or Dare" video segment. While in LA with a close pal of Ridley's, the pair made their way to Drake's compound, where Beckham was staying. It wasn't long before Gronkowski and company got their hands on jumpsuits from Ridley's clothing collection, KiD-RiD. "Me and Odell got in the onesies and then we went in the backyard, because it's such a beautiful backyard, and then we took pictures in the onesies," Gronkowski continued. Though Gronkowski's teammate, Danny Amendola, also got in on the fun, the photo shoot wasn't his fondest memory at Drake's. In fact, he found his promised land in a secret locale. "[He] has a bar underneath a waterfall type thing in the back corner of the pool," he added. "It was pretty cool."
