Check out a behind the scenes look at Rob Gronkowski's ESPN The Magazine Body Issue cover shoot (video above), in which he acknowledges he's likely to take some ribbing from teammates for the nude photos that appear on the cover (here) and inside (here and here).

"I'm going to have about a week of harassment," said Gronk, who wasn't around when Tom Brady heard it from his teammates after a GQ photo spread that included him holding a goat. "This is going to be posted all over the locker room. Everyone making comments, it's going to be funny."

More from Gronk on the shoot:

"This is a great opportunity. ESPN The Magazine. I mean, it's basically one of the only magazines I read. I wasn't really that nervous, juts a little bit. Once I got here, met everyone and was comfortable I was good to go.

"The shot I had the most fun with was hitting the pinata. I had a couple of pieces of candy after I nailed that pianata open, I was going to town on it. The photographers were dancing, I was dancing, everyone was dancing, having a good time."
