"Now get hype'd, and get Gronk'd."
That is what Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski wants his fans to do over the next couple of weeks, as ESPN's SportsNation is allowing fans to vote for their favorite NFL star to be on the cover of Madden 13.
Gronkowski said that he is still working out hard even with his injured ankle, and that all of his brothers are joining in to help him prepare for the 2012 season.
However, most of the time, whoever appears on the Madden cover ends up struggling — including Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis after his appearance on the cover of Madden 12.
Should Gronk risk it? Well, he's willing to roll the dice.
