Bills players reportedly 'want to put them hands' on Rob Gronkowski

The 22-year old has apparently been texting former National Football League safety Ryan Clark and in an appearance on ESPN Radio's The Russillo Show, Clark revealed what White had been texting the retired safety.

That star New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who lost the appeal of his one-game suspension, which means he is out for this Monday night's game against the Miami Dolphins in South Florida. The rookie corner, who's in concussion protocol, practiced on a limited basis Wednesday.

"'The whole hood want 'em, '" Clark said.

Clark gave his own interpretation of the text, which was "they want to put them hands on him". "That was my initial thought, that teammates should have come to his defense", Clark said.

Clark is not alone.


"I didn't think it was warranted", Roethlisberger said. "When you see a shot like that - if I'm the coach, yeah, you want to play smart, you don't want to play dirty, you don't want to get that penalty and all that".

"I know what I saw", McDermott said. However, after taking that shot to the head, White was unavailable for comment after the game. Gronk apologized for the hit, but said after the game that he was frustrated by inconsistent calls against him.

Bill Belichick immediately expressed contrition to Bills head coach Sean McDermott.

The NFL will probably be on high alert for retaliatory measures when the Patriots and Bills play December 24, especially given White's apparent text message. McDermott on Monday revealed the good news, and described Taylor's injury as a patellar tendon contusion (essentially a bruised knee cap), suffered on the game's opening play.

Another Steeler talking about Gronk was Roethlisberger, who told reporters on Wednesday that it wasn't fair that JuJu Smith-Schuster, his Pittsburgh teammate, got the same one-game suspension as the Patriots tight end for his hit on the Bengals' Vontez Burfict. "And I'm also proud to a point of the poise that we showed. Obviously, we don't like the taunting, the standing over him, things like that". "And then when you look at the non football act, the only thing and you want to look at history and precedent".
