Rob Gronkowski said Wednesday afternoon that Tom Brady has “full support from myself and the organization” in the wake of the announcement that the Patriots quarterback will be suspended for four games for his involvement in Deflategate.

Gronkowski. who was on ESPN promoting the fact that he was a finalist in the Madden 16 cover vote, was also asked if he thought the punishment was too harsh.

“It is what it is,” he shrugged. “The only thing I can do is make myself get better and prepare for the new season.”

Gronkowski expressed confidence in backup Jimmy Garoppolo, who would likely become the short-term starter in place of Brady. However, he acknowledged the importance of having Brady in the lineup on a regular basis.

“We definitely want (Brady) in the locker room, because he’s our team leader,” Gronkowski added.
