Tre'Davious White Wanted Harsher Suspension For 'Dirty Player' Rob Gronkowski

Rob Gronkowski apologized for his reckless behavior during the New England Patriots' win over the rival Buffalo Bills, but that's not enough for rookie cornerback Tre'Davious White.

The 22-year-old LSU product, who Buffalo selected with the 27th overall pick in the 2017 National Football League draft, intercepted a Tom Brady pass intended for Gronkowski late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game. Gronkowski was called for unnecessary roughness, but not kicked out of the game. He was cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol on Thursday, putting him in a position to play Sunday when Buffalo (6-6) hosts Indianapolis (3-9). Speaking about the late hit for the first time on Thursday, White was still pretty fired up about the play, calling Gronkowski a dirty player. I got a son to raise. "All that. People don't think about that when they just react". I probably could've but my tongue off. "But boy, when you see something like that and it happens right in front of you, me as a quarterback, I might have ran over and gave him a good shot".


"Man, it's a joke, dog", White said.

Gronkowski was hit with a one-game suspension, which was upheld after the tight end appealed. "Bad headache. It is what it is".


"I don't believe in shots like that", Gronkowski said, according to ESPN.

"His intentions were to hurt me", he added, via Heather Prusak of WGRZ.


"The guy did what he wanted to do".
