New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was announced as the new cover man for Madden 17, but that won’t keep him from criticizing the NFL about one of his teammates. He spoke out against quarterback Tom Brady’s four-game suspension stemming from the “Deflategate Scandal” over a year ago.
He spoke with NFL.com and he seems pretty confident that Brady will get the chance to play all season long, just like in 2015 when he was supposed to miss the first four games of the season.
He had some strong words for the commissioner and everyone involved in working against Brady.
“It’s kind of getting stupid to the point where it’s at now. Why it’s still going on now … I think he’s going to play 16 games again. That’s the way it’s been going on, that’s the way it’s worked, so hopefully that’s true,” Gronkowski said.
Brady is likely going to continue his legal battle against the NFL and has until May 23 to decide if he wants to appeal his four-game ban once again. If there is anyone who is going to support him, it’s Rob Gronkowski.
