Gronk Lands On the Cover of Madden NFL 17

Let the Season of Gronk begin!  Every offseason, New England Patriots Superstar TE, Rob Gronkowski, takes advantage of his break from the grueling NFL season and goes on epic parties that range from the Party Bus to this year’s Party Cruise.  It’s known as the Summer of Gronk.

As of today, we can change that to the Season of Gronk!  EA Sports has tabbed the unstoppable pass catching force to be their Madden Cover Athlete for the Madden NFL 17 season.

EA Sports selected their man without input from the fans, unlike the previous years.  However, the selection of Gronk actually makes sense and forgiveable.  Last year, EA Sports gave us four athletes to vote for.  The final two were Rob Gronkowski and the eventual Madden NFL 16 Cover Man Odell Beckham Jr.  

Since ODB had his time, it’s now Gronk’s turn to join the fraternity.

EA Access Members on XBOX One will allow fans to play Madden NFL 17 as part of First Play access but it’s a limited release.

Madden NFL 17’s season will begin August 23, 2016 for PS4 and XBOX One!

As Cinelinx’s resident Sports Gamer, I will likely be able to play a demo at EA Play during E3 2016 and I’ll give you my first reaction here, so stay tuned!

What do you think about Rob Gronkowski as the new Cover Athlete for Madden NFL 17?
