Tom Brady has to fight off the Madden curse, in addition to Father Time

Rob Gronkowski struggled through injuries in 2016 after appearing on . Now it’s Tom Brady’s time to face the curse.

Tom Brady plans to play for six or seven more years, , but another hurdle was put in the quarterback’s path Friday morning with

The curse that Brady is referring to is the legendary curse — a streak of misfortune that struck players who were on the cover of the video game franchise. At one point, after appearing on the cover.

But it went dormant for a while. Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson set the record for receiving yards after appearing on , and Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was a first-team All-Pro after earning a spot on .

Patriots fans may be a little sensitive to the curse, though. Rob Gronkowski was on the cover a year ago and he struggled through injuries in 2016, eventually landing on injured reserve due to a back injury that required surgery to repair.
