Tre'Davious White calls one-game suspension for Rob Gronkowski a 'joke'

Tre'Davious White calls one-game suspension for Rob Gronkowski a 'joke'

The NFL laid down a one-game suspension to New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski for his late hit on Tre-Davious White, a ruling which was upheld after the fact.

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. He also spoke for the first time about the league levying just a one-game suspension for what everyone agrees was dirty and unsafe.

White was taken to the locker room with what later was described as a concussion. I mean, I got a son to raise [and] all that. "Dirty shot. So what does that make him?" I'm glad I had my mouthpiece in or I could've bit my tongue off. "Bad headache. It is what it is".

"It's a joke. I don't know what to say on that", White said Thursday. "All that. People don't think about that when they just react". As a result, the 28-year-old will miss Monday's meeting with the Miami Dolphins.

Sophie Turner Says Game of Thrones' Final Season to Premiere in 2019
While HBO has not confirmed anything about the Season 8 air date, Sophie Turner's reference is likely to be the truth. When asked about her upcoming slate, Turner said: "Yeah, I'm really excited".

The Patriots star tight end was suspended just one game for his actions.

"His intentions were to hurt me", White said.

"The Competition Committee has clearly expressed its goal of 'eliminating flagrant hits that have no place in our game.' Those hits include the play you were involved in yesterday", he continued.

Added White: "The guy did what he wanted to do".
