EA Sports Announces the Cover Player for This Years ‘Madden 17’ – Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski

The cover of everyone’s favorite football video game was announced today – and instead of Cam Newton of the Panthers or Super Bowl winning QB Peyton Manning getting the cover – Madden 17 will be graced by none other than – Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski.

Yes, ‘Gronk’ gets the cover, and it will be the first time a A tight end will appear on the cover of Madden.

Here’s EA Sports official tweet with the announcement

Of course Browns fans will never forget the year they flocked to the polls to get one of their own – running back Peyton Hillis, on the cover of the game.

We all know how that worked out.

In other words – be careful of the ‘Madden Curse’ when it comes to picking Gronkowski this year in Fantasy football.
