Poor, Julian Edelman. He was the most vocal member of the New England Patriots when it came to campaigning for Tom Brady to come back to the franchise. That did not happen as Brady took his talents to the Tampa Bay Bucs.
The news only got worse on Tuesday as former teammate Rob Gronkowski came out of retirement, not to play for the Patriots, but to be traded to the Tampa Bay.
Soon after the news broke, social media followers noticed Edelman unfollowed Brady on Instagram.
Over the course of his career, Edelman has 599 receptions for 6,507 yards and 36 touchdowns. Almost all of the passes thrown his way came from Brady.
This news today has to hurt.
