During Manning’s cast, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end hilariously said he doesn’t need to watch movies, thanks to quarterback Tom Brady.
After coming out of retirement last year and winning Super Bowl 55, tight end Rob Gronkowski is having a career resurgence during the first two weeks of the NFL season. But how do you do it? Well, Gronkowski said one thing he doesn’t do.
While appearing in Manning’s cast with Peyton and Eli Manning, Gronkowski admitted that when someone asked him if he ever saw a movie, the tight end said “no.” Not only that, but he responded to that person by saying “I only lead the boys.”
Rob Gronkowski admits to Manning cast he sees zero movie
As Gronkowski continued, he said he knows his teammate and seven-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady watches 40 hours of film a week. So you just ask Brady who’s covering him and what the coverages are for the week.
If this is true, the strategy is obviously working.
Gronkowski came out of retirement last year and managed to secure a trade from the New England Patriots to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Through 16 games, Gronkowski caught 45 passes for 623 yards and seven touchdowns. In Super Bowl 55, the tight end caught six of seven Brady targets for 67 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.
Throughout the first two games of this season, Gronkowski already has 12 receptions for 129 yards and four touchdowns on 13 goals.
The fact that Gronkowski was in the cast of Manning was always going to be gold. Sure enough, it delivered on Monday night.
