There are countless anecdotes about New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady that demonstrate his competitiveness, dedication, and intensity. Teammate Rob Gronkowski just added one more.

Speaking to Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer, the tight end revealed a story that illustrates how enthusiastic Brady is when it comes to the game of football.

“I’ll give you a legendary story,” Gronk told Glazer. “This happened the first day of camp. I heard he was in the special teams meeting—and he’s not even on special teams—paying full attention, writing notes down.”

“There you go,” he continued. “That just shows how much the guy works, that he’s in the special teams meetings, too.”
