Rob Gronkowski and Brandin Cooks got an earful about their piggy-back ride celebration

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Brandin Cooks were excited after a big play against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

Cooks caught his 5th touchdown pass of the season in the fourth quarter of the Patriots’ 35-17 victory, and he and Gronkowski got caught up in the moment. He jumped on Gronkowski’s back for a piggy-back ride which was kind of funny. However, when Gronkowski was asked about it, he revealed that the coaching staff was not amused.

“We got yelled at, we’re not allowed to talk about celebrations,” Gronkowski said, via Boston 25’s Chad Amaral. “That’s what we got told, but I kinda wanna talk about it. But I kind of don’t because I’ll get in trouble. So I don’t know what to do.”

Knowing how focused on the next task Belichick is, it is not surprising a coaching staff he is in charge of would be upset after that. Especially, because Gronkowski’s second touchdown catch of the day was a “group celebration.”

Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola cleared out some space with his foot for a “Gronk spike.”

The funniest part about the Patriots has to be that Belichick and Gronkowski have to work together on a daily basis. Gronkowski probably drives his coach crazy.
