Everyone probably has seen the video clip of New York Jets safety Jamal Adams attacking the Patriots mascot, Pat Patriot, at the Pro Bowl last week. If you haven’t seen it, it was an unscripted tackle without warning that was a joke turned serious after Pat Patriot sought medical treatment after this hit:
Oh boy. The #Patriots mascot who got tackled by Jamal Adams was sent to the hospital this morning.
Adams said his intention was never to hurt him. It was all just a joke. The NFL is "not happy" with him because of the incident, per Adams. pic.twitter.com/xB4HmamxKq

The mascot is still reportedly very sore from what happened, and Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was asked about the incident Monday at Super Bowl Opening Night.
“I saw that. It wasn’t very nice,” he said to reporters.
So, will the Patriots try and get revenge in some way?
“That is a tough question,” Gronkowski said. “We’re going to have to figure a way out to get the revenge. I mean, that was not nice what he did. I heard the guy got seriously hurt.”
There is a saying, “A fish with his mouth closed never gets caught” but Adams was running his mouth after the incident so payback is in order.
Pat Patriot is still expected to be at the Super Bowl this coming Sunday and tweeted out a “Still here” comment after the incident tagging off of the GOAT Tom Brady who has been coining that phrase after each playoff victory to throw some shade at all the haters and doubters.
The best revenge would be adding another Lombardi to the Patriots trophy case on Sunday.
Gronk is rumored to be contemplating retirement this off-season so he may not be around to deal his own style of revenge, but maybe after relaxing and doing all the epic adventures he does to stay busy in the off-season he may have the desire to suit up for another year with the Patriots. We could definitely use some more epic Gronk moments and maybe some of this for Jamal Adams:
