Shortly after the Week 13 loss, Bills' safeties Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer acknowledged that this incident would carry over into the team's Week 16 meeting on Christmas Eve at Gillette Stadium.
Rob Gronkowski's discipline from the National Football League may be settled, but in regards to his cheap shot on Tre'Davious White, the Buffalo Bills reportedly still have a beef with the New England Patriots tight end. Clark said Tuesday on "The Russillo Show" on ESPN Radio.
Obviously, we don't like the taunting, the standing over him, the things like that ... but you look at what Gronk did and what JuJu did and he got the same suspension, I don't know if that's necessarily fair. While Gronk leveled the now-disciplined forearm to White's head, Danny Amendola was getting into it with another Bills player, drawing more flags.
Asked for a translation, Clark replied: "They want to put them hands on him", referring to the Bills. "I don't know what to say on that".
Clark, who played against Gronkowski three times a Pittsburgh Steeler, argued that White's teammates let him down by not coming to his defense in the moment. "That was my initial thought, that (White's) teammates should have came to his defense".
Gronkowski will now have to sit out the Patriots' game against the Miami Dolphins next Monday. He called Gronkowski's one-game suspension "a joke". "All that. People aren't thinking about that when they react". "So I was kind of disappointed in 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.
