Former New England Patriots great Rob Gronkowski was one of five tight ends to be included in the NFL 100 All-Time Team. On Saturday, he took to Twitter calling the inclusion “an incredible honor” while shouting out his former teammates and coaches.

One of the most fun-loving players of his generation, Gronkowski also was known as being an awesome teammate. After seeing this response from the future Hall of Famer, it’s not hard to see why.

On a related note, as part of Gronk’s inclusion into the NFL 100 All-Time Team, Bill Belichick related a previously untold story about a hilarious pre-draft visit he had with the Patriots before being drafted by the team. It’s pure gold, and it also tells us so much about the legendary Gronkowski.
