It's about time. It has been announced that Rob Gronkowski will grace the cover of 'Madden NFL 17.'

A few years back I would have been a bit nervous having Gronk on the cover of a 'Madden' game, but I think the curse is over.

It used to be that if you were featured on the cover you would get injured during the season, but that trend has been broken.

Gronk should have been on the cover last year, but he was beat out by Odell Beckham Jr.

'Madden NFL 17' comes out August 23rd.
