Tom Brady had a heartfelt message following Julian Edelman’s retirement.

Brady wrote the following in part:

You never lost that chip on your shoulder.

Edelman and Brady dominated the NFL together for several seasons, and they won three Super Bowl rings as teammates.

Off of the field, they were obviously great friends, and Brady just gave his buddy one hell of a send-off message.

That’s the kind of dude support we love seeing at this publication.
