Gronkowski's visit to NFL Network

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was a guest on NFL Network's "Total Access" program on Wednesday -- video with host Rich Eisen here and video of on-field demonstration here -- while also visiting with NFL.com for a Q&A.

Gronkowski explained to NFL.com that he has been working out at Bommarito Performance Systems in Florida, along with receiver Wes Welker and other defensive teammates. Gronkowski expects more of his teammates to show up next week.

Gronkowski shared thoughts on quarterback Tom Brady, pointing out that one thing people might not know about him is that "he studies film all the way home on the plane ride home from games.

"I’ve never seen that before out of a quarterback," Gronkowski said of Brady's work ethic. "It’s crazy how hard he works and how serious he is on the field. He’s a vocal leader and a leader by example."
