White said today that Gronkowski’s hit was dangerous and could have caused a severe injury, and that the NFL’s suspsension was woefully inadequate.
“It’s a joke,” White said. “I don’t know what to say on that. I’m laying there, he [hit] me with my back turned. He could’ve broken my neck. I’ve got a son to raise.”
White also said Gronkowski hasn’t reached out to apologize. Apologizing is the least Gronkowski could do for a hit that, as White noted, came after the play, with his back turned, and could have caused a serious injury.
