Rob Gronkowski said Wednesday that he actually does watch film and his job isn't as easy as he made it seem while talking to Peyton and Eli Manning on their ESPN Monday Night Football MegaCast.

"I actually watch tons of film. An overload of film. I will probably blame [Bucs vice president of communications] Nelson [Luis] over there. He asked me eight times to go on the show. I told him, 'It's not a good idea.' They always get me in that type of silly atmosphere, and that's what happened," Gronkowski said, joking. "Now Coach [Bruce Arians] threatened me. I don't get my vet day anymore."

Gronkowski joked on the show, "I just run by guys, and if I'm feelin' good, I'm feelin' good. ... I actually do go up to Tom [Brady] 'cause Tom watches like, I don't know, 40 hours of film a week. I go, 'Tom, who's covering me this week? What type of coverages are they doing?' I go, 'That's why I love playing for you, dawg. You just know everything.'"
