Rob Gronkowski is doing himself no favors in his hometown.
Gronkowski, currently a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and former Patriots player made some comments this week regarding his time with the Patriots.
During the ESPN Tom Brady documentary “Man in the Arena” which is about the quarterback’s career, Gronkowski mentioned the time when he was suspended for a very late and dirty hit on Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White. However, he did not sound upset about it because he wasn’t. He said he was “happy.”

“I was finally happy. I was like, ‘Yes, I’m away from football for a week. I get to recover my body.’ I mean, when you’re running full speed into people, it definitely was taking a toll on me. … I lost a paycheck — it was about $300,000, that game check — and I didn’t even care one bit. I was just glad I had a week off from football, because I needed it.”
After the game, White shared his thoughts on the hit:
“Man, that’s a joke. I don’t know what to say on that. I’m laying there . . . My back turned. I could have broken my neck. I mean, I’ve got a son to raise. All that. People aren’t thinking about that when they react.”
Gronk’s latest comments will only make Buffalo Bills fans more angry.
