It's no surprise that New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is slated to grace the cover of "Madden NFL '17." After all, he's one of the most recognizable players in a league that is quite fond of its quarterbacks.
The announcement was made last Thursday via SportsCenter, with the interesting note that Gronk actually becomes the first ever New England player to be named in the cover, according to ESPN.
The 27-year-old almost got his first cover for the popular sports video game last year, but the voters decided to give the honor to New York Giants' Odell Beckham, Jr. But this time, he finally gets his chance of realizing a dream.

As the 2016 Olympics continues its preparations, more concerns are being raised regarding the healt hazards the festivities could ignite. Recently, an expert has warned people of the Brazil games, believing that pushing it through can cause a "full-blown public health disaster."
A report by Amir Attaran published in the Harvard Public Health Review journal states that the Zika virus will just need one infected tourist to spread an epidemic.

Attaran, a faculty member of Medicine and Faculty of Law at the University of Ottawa, added that the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic games, which are set to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil starting August 5, need to be either moved to another location or postponed for a later date. He explained that halting the Olympics is a precautionary to ensure that Zika's outbreak in Brazil won't further affect those who are planning to attend or watch the festivities. more >>
Reigning Most Valuable Player awardee and Golden State Warriors stalwart Stephen Curry has been putting on stellar performances this season alone.
He may have been bogged down by injuries, but this did not stop him from wowing basketball audiences around the world.
