Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White is not happy that the NFL only gave Patriots cornerback Rob Gronkowski a one-game suspension for his cheap shot on Sunday.

White said today that Gronkowski's hit was dangerous and could have caused a severe injury, and that the NFL's suspsension was woefully inadequate.

"It's a joke," White said. "I don't know what to say on that. I'm laying there, he [hit] me with my back turned. He could've broken my neck. I've got a son to raise."

White also said Gronkowski hasn't reached out to apologize. Apologizing is the least Gronkowski could do for a hit that, as White noted, came after the play, with his back turned, and could have caused a serious injury.

Think Kirk Cousins Is Primed To Sign a Huge Contract in NFL Free Agency? Think Again

As NFL free agency approaches, we have a rare sight to behold: a true, unrestricted free agent quarterback with experience, productivity and relative youth at the game's most important and valuable position. Kirk Cousins will finally avoid the franchise tag (Washington could try to tag and trade Cousins even after acquiring Alex Smith but, well, good luck with that...) and, for the first time in an NFL career that began in 2012, be free to negotiate with all teams. Quarterback is the only position in football-except kicker and punter-where, barring injury, one man plays the vast majority of downs.
