Gronk crashes Press Sect. Sean Spicer's press briefing

Updated:

WASHINGTON - He's never one to back down from a challenge - and now Rob Gronkowski is willing to give the White House a little help. 

While in Washington, DC for the Patriots Super Bowl visit, Gronkowski "Gronk" stuck his head into the daily press briefing, led by Press Secretary Sean Spicer. 

"Hey, Sean. Need some help?" Gronkowski offered. 

"I think I got this but thank you," Spicer replied. 

The press secretary and New England native seemed a little bit star struck by Gronk's surprise visit. 

"That was cool," he said, laughing as he stood at the podium. "How do you follow that?" 

Spicer has been in the news recently for flubs during his press briefings, most recently saying the Hitler didn't use chemical weapons on his own people. He has since apologized for his comments.

We are sure this is just the beginning of the antics of the Patriots players at the White House. FOX25 will have full coverage online and starting at 4 p.m.
