New England Patriots’ Rob Gronkowski is likely out for the next few weeks with an injured knee, but that’s not what the tight end is worried about as he heals up.
CBS Boston threw together a post based on comments made on 98.5 The Sports Hub alleging NFL officials are targeting Gronkowski:
“There is no question about that. There is not even a debate, especially after that fourth quarter OPI called on Sunday. That closed the book on that debate; they are going after Rob Gronkowski,” said The Boston Herald’s Jeff Howe.
According to the report, Gronkowski’s five accepted offensive pass interference calls lead the league, and he’s had more OPI calls against him than 30 other teams.
Gronkowski didn’t wait long to make his feelings known:
It might be a few weeks before he gets back on the field, but it will certainly be interesting to see if officials treat him any differently after getting called out like this.
