After Hearing That Broncos Players Were Going To Tackle Him Low, Rob Gronkowski Tossed Out The Most Incredible Burn

As I reported earlier, Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. was asked a question on SportsCenter this afternoon about how to tackle New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, saying that defenders have to “hit him low, man — hit him in his knees. That’s the best chance you have of hitting him.”

While the statement was a strong one, insinuating that Denver players were going for Gronk’s knees, the tight end responded in kind on Twitter—and it’s the best burn by an athlete on social media ever:

Gronk is the fucking man who fears no one or anything, and I can’t wait to see how he comes out and backs up his trash talk on Sunday in the AFC title game. Game fucking on.
