Tom Brady is still very close with Patriots’ Julian Edelman
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has never been one to pass up on an opportunity to wish his close teammates happy birthday. Although he may be starting a new chapter of his illustrious career, it seems this has not changed his relationship with New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman.
Tom Brady took to Instagram to wish Edelman a happy birthday:
It has been a busy month of birthdays for Tom Brady. He recently did the same for tight end Rob Gronkowski as well as a slew of his offensive linemen from the Patriots and Bucs.
It is safe to say that when someone has played for as long as Tom Brady has, they develop some rather close relationships with teammates both on and off they field. The fact that Edelman continues to remain close with his former teammate only helps to solidify this notion. After all, he was well aware of the looming sweepstakes that would result in the six-time Super Bowl champs potential departure and that seemingly had little impact on their plans together for the offseason.
The pair are not scheduled to meet during the 2020 NFL season, which gives them another year to hang out without a looming conflict of interest. Regardless, it is safe to assume that not even a potential showdown would be enough to impact the friendship Tom Brady and Julian Edelman built during their time in New England.
Although Tom Brady is now in the midst of building chemistry with his new receiving corps, it is clear that Edelman will always have a special place in his heart.
