Rob Gronkowski became the first tight end to grace the cover of the Madden franchise when the image from the 2017 edition of the popular NFL video game was released on Thursday.

It seems some photoshop savvy Denver fans agreed with the team and did their best to rectify the situation.

While Von Miller would have been an equally fair choice for the cover of the game, a player from the Super Bowl-winning team has only graced the following cover twice in the game's history, with Troy Polamalu appearing on Madden 10 with Larry Fitzgerald, and Richard Sherman gracing the cover of Madden 15.
