Gronkowski a finalist for Madden '16 cover

Rob Gronkowski had his first healthy season last year since 2011, and he may be rewarded with even more than a Super Bowl ring -- depending on how you look at it, that is.

The soon-to-be 26-year-old is a finalist for the cover of the Madden '16 video game cover, according to the EA Sports website, going head-to-head with the Giants' Odell Beckham, Jr. Voting begins on ESPN's website tomorrow at 9 a.m., with the winner announced on the 6 p.m. edition of SportsCenter.

The honor's a double-edged sword for Gronk, who will be looking once again to avoid any injury and doesn't need any aid from a "Madden Curse." The tight end put up more than 1,100 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns in 15 games last season, both team highs.

Beckham, Jr., a Rookie of the Year finalist last season, tallied 1,300 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns in 12 games played.
