BOSTON (CBS) -New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was so excited after his second touchdown against the New York Jets last Sunday, it’s now going to cost him.

Gronkowski was fined $7,500 on Friday for his emphatic spike during the Patriots 37-16 win.

This time with even more force.

We’ll see on Monday night against the Chiefs.
