Tom Brady Makes Fun Of Julian Edelman’s Welcome-to-Patriots Post to Cam Newton

Tom Brady decided to part ways with the New England Patriots earlier this year, leaving the team for the first time since his draft back in 2000. He signed a new contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers shortly thereafter and is already preparing for his first season in sunny Florida.

During his time on the Patriots, Brady became very close with receiver Julian Edelman. Even though the two are now playing for different teams, it looks like Brady and Edelman are still great friends. We were made sure of this with a hilarious comment Brady left on Edelman’s recent Instagram post welcoming quarterback Cam Newton to New England.

Newton famously wore No. 1 with the Carolina Panthers, so he could very well look to keep his number with his new team. That means that Brady will have to take a step back and accept that he is not Edelman’s No.1 anymore.

While Edelman has not said anything about Brady’s departure from the Patriots, Brady has spoke on this topic. During an interview he did a while back, he said that his relationship with Edelman has changed under the circumstances:

“Jules knows how I feel about him. I love that guy. He’s like a brother to me. We have been through so much and nobody is as big a fan (of) Julian than me. He will be great (with) whoever he plays with. As you guys know, there’s a business side to sports. Things happen. You have to take it day-by-day like we’re all experiencing. Things change pretty quickly in the world and in our lives.

“There’s one thing I said about the very, very unfortunate passing of Kobe Bryant is we never know when our day is. You think one day you are just waking up to do something really routine in your life, we’re planning for the future 30, 40 years from now, but the reality is seize the day. That is all we’ve got. Do what you love to do. Enjoy what you love doing and then have no regrets. I certainly don’t. It’s a blessing to still do something I love to do and I am going to work as hard as I ever had in a different place doing the same thing.”

It’s too bad they will have to be apart.
