Rob Gronkowski went with the rare left-handed spike after scoring his first career touchdown with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Sunday’s Week 6 win over the Green Bay Packers.
The veteran tight end usually goes with the right-handed spike after scoring touchdowns — a sight New England Patriots fans know all too well. However, a sore right shoulder forced Gronk to switch things up a bit.
Browns TE David Njoku reportedly wants a trade; should Pats make a move?
The spike didn’t draw great reviews on Twitter. It lacked the typical power we’re used to seeing from Gronkowski during these celebrations.
Gronkowski heard the feedback and he doesn’t agree. He rated his spike a perfect 10.
“That was my first left-handed spike in my career,” Gronkowski said Monday during a video press conference.
