Rob Gronkowski Apologizes for Cheap Shot vs. Bills, Criticizes Officiating

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski looks on from the sideline after an argument with Buffalo Bills players during the second half of an NFL football game Sunday Dec. 3 2017 in Orchard Park N.Y

The Patriots tight end earned a rare penalty for a late hit Sunday in Buffalo, where he took an inexcusably cheap shot at Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White.

The incident occurred on a Tom Brady interception in the final five minutes of the game.

White picked off a pass intended for Gronkowski and fell to the ground during the catch.

White was slow to get up and needed help off the field.

White, who was turned away and didn't see it coming, was clearly shaken up and possibly is concussed.

Micah Hyde got into his own scuffle with Danny Amendola on the same play so the two teams made a decision to accept offsetting penalties.


"First of all, I definitely want to apologize to No. 27 (White)".

"I'm not in the business of that", he told reporters. "There was a lot of frustration, and I was just really frustrated at that moment". It just happened natuually through emotions and frustration. I don't really believe in type shots like that.

Gronkowski was apologetic after the game.

Given how tight of a ship the Patriots run, we imagine Gronkowski will be on his best behavior for the remainder of the season.

As to what he can do to combat what he feels is unfair treatment from the officials, Gronkowski said, "I don't know". "And just a couple times during the game, and they're calling me for the craziest, craziest stuff ever". And then they don't call that?
