New England Patriots radio commentator cheers on Rob Gronkowski's late hit

Gronkowski jumped on White and drove his forearm into the back of White's head. "The whole hood want Gronk, for sure", Clark said on ESPN Radio.

White said Gronkowski hasn't apologized to him. I mean, I got a son to raise.

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.

Gronkowski received his suspension for hitting White after the play had been whistled dead.

Several Bills players decried the hit after the game, with safety Jordan Poyer saying they "of course" will remember it as they prepare for the rematch on Christmas Eve. Each of the last 10 Patriots-Bills matchups has included at least one unsportsmanlike conduct or unnecessary roughness penalty (23 in all during that span), and a brawl almost broke out during warmups before their first meeting last season. The Bills cornerback was already a defenseless player.

White wasn't pleased when asked for his thoughts on Gronkowski's one-game suspension.

Clark also expressed his frustration with the lack of criticism toward Gronk following the incident. "When you see a shot like that, I don't care". Clark said his "big, jolly frat-guy persona" allowed him to get away with "a awful decision that put somebody else's career and livelihood in jeopardy". But that didn't make him feel any better it.

"I'd say on anything that is outside of our control, such as injuries that could go down to pregame workouts and so forth, things that are out of control are out of our control", Belichick said.
