Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. revealed some very disturbing but unsurprising strategy on how to bring down massive New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.
Harris, who will be battling a shoulder injury heading into Sunday’s game told Business Insider that the strategy to take down Gronkowski was pretty simple:
“You gotta hit him low, man — hit him in his knees,” Harris said. “That’s the best chance you have of hitting him.”
Harris went on to say that Gronk couldn’t be brought down by just one player — unless that player took out his legs.
“You gotta take his legs out or hold on and wait for everybody, wait for the gang to come on and gang tackle him,” Harris added.
Now, I’m going to guess the first time Gronk gets popped in the knees on Sunday that it will not result in a penalty because you know, Patriots.
Back on Thanksgiving weekend, a low hit by the Broncos nearly ended Gronkowski’s season.
During the offseason, The Shield may need to take a look at this. It’s incredibly dumb for a league to love scoring but yet not penalize low hits to receivers.
Soon after the Harris comment hit print, Gronkowski lobbed a grenade of his own to the Broncos:
Sunday should be pretty fun.
