Colts safety Sergio Brown: I'd like to toss Rob Gronkowski 'out of the club'

Sunday January 18th, 2015

Picking up where their war of words left off earlier in the season, Indianapolis Colts safety Sergio Brown told Comcast Sports Net New England he'd like to throw Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski out of the proverbial club when the two teams meet again Sunday for the AFC Championship. 

After New England's 42-20 victory over Indianapolis in November, Gronkowski, infamous for his hard-partying lifestyle, said he took Brown and "threw him out of the club."

The comment was in reference to a fourth-quarter Patriots touchdown play during which Gronkowski blocked Brown all the way out of bounds. Gronkowski had claimed Brown had been "yappin" at him throughout the game. 

"I'm not mad about it," Brown told CSNNE in reference to the block. "I was more mad about him saying he 'threw me out of the club' after the game. We just lost. Aw, you're pissed off," he said.

When asked if he would like to return the favor to Gronkowski today, Brown said, "Of course I would."

Gronkowski is in the midst of one of his best seasons this year, logging 82 receptions for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns. Brown has 33 tackles and six pass deflections over 15 games this season for the Colts.

Indianapolis and New England kick off Sunday at 6:40 p.m. on CBS.
