Is Rob Ninkovich looking to add some serious muscle to the Patriots defensive line?

The veteran player recently befriended one of the largest members of the animal kingdom while visiting Southwick Zoo in Mendon, Mass. Along with former Patriot Matt Light, Ninko participated in a "Rhino Encounter," having the opportunity to get up close to the zoo's two white rhinos.

Rob and Matt will be back at the zoo on June 20 to lend their support to the 10th annual Benefit EARTH Bash, which raises money for a variety of conservation and education programs on site and in the community.
