The Patriots tight end is known for being an unstoppable monster on the field and the life of the part off it. Gronkowski called it a “dream come true” and a “feel good moment”. While in the past fans might be concerned about the “Madden Curse” in which cover athletes kept getting injured, now there seems to be some “Madden Magic” going around. In 2012 when Calvin Johnson was on the cover he broke the single season receiving record. When Adrian Peterson followed that up with a 1,200 yard rushing season, Richard Sherman was as deadly as ever and took Seattle back to the Super Bowl and then last year Odell Beckham put on a clinic and banked 1,450 receiving yards as the cover athlete. All this means that Rob Gronkowski could be in for yet another stellar year with the New England Patriots, which is a fearsome thought for the defenses who already struggle to contain him.
