Gronk is the ‘Madden 17’ Cover Athlete According to Leaked Photo (Tweet)

Gronk Madden Cover

Possible bad news for Rob Gronkowski:  The New England Patriots tight end will likely be named the Madden 17 cover athlete, judging by some photos that were leaked on Twitter early this morning.

The good news for Gronk is that, while the Madden Cover curse has claimed many victims in the past, it hasn’t done much to slow down its most recent cover athletes, like Odell Beckham (Madden 16 cover athlete), Richard Sherman (Madden 14 cover athlete), and Calvin Johnson (Madden 13 cover athlete).

Will Gronk falter, or will he overcome the curse like the cover athletes of recent years.

Here’s a look at the leaked photos:
