Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski admits he actually does watch game film

Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski generated laughs and raised some eyes during the most recent ESPN2 "Monday Night Football" simulcast when he suggested to Peyton and Eli Manning that he doesn't watch game film: 

Gronkowski later addressed his comments via Twitter: 

Head coach Bruce Arians proved he also has a sense of humor when he responded Wednesday and declared he's revoking Gronkowski's veteran-days off of practices after Monday's revelation: 

This led to Gronkowski clearing the air later in the day. 

"I watch so much film, my girlfriend gets mad at me," the four-time Super Bowl champion told reporters, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

Gronkowski added he was merely embracing the "silly atmosphere" created by the Manning brothers during what have become popular alternate broadcasts of "MNF" games.

Perhaps the Mannings can have Arians on a future edition of their show to ask him about Gronk's midweek viewing habits. 

Zac Wassink is a football and futbol aficionado who is a PFWA member and is probably yelling about Tottenham Hotspur at the moment. Erik Lamela and Eli Manning apologist. Chanted for Matt Harvey to start the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series at Citi Field. Whoops. You can find him on Twitter at @ZacWassink
