If there's one New England Patriots player to single out as the most relieved to hear the Cam Newton news, it's easily wide receiver Julian Edelman, who felt abandoned in Foxborough after Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski left for Tampa Bay this offseason.
Roughly 24 hours after it was reported that the former MVP signed a one-year deal with the organization, Edelman unsurprisingly took to social media to welcome him to New England. What we didn't see coming, however, was Brady jumping in his former wideout's comments with a cringeworthy reply.
This is just so weird from TB12, who comes off as your typical jealous ex. The six-time Super Bowl champ still could be Edelman's "number one" if he didn't blindside him in choosing to sign with the Buccaneers in free agency.
It really seems like Brady is offended at the thought of Edelman potentially emerging as Newton's favorite target in the passing game.
What makes it clear that Edelman is willing to make this new relationship work? The fact that he went out of his way to use Newton's gibberish font. Brady should realize this and let the 34-year-old receiver continue to adjust to life without him as opposed to living in his comments section on social media platforms.
