Julian Edelman was one of the most vocal players in trying to sway Tom Brady to remain with the Patriots for next season. As we all know by now, Brady opted to leave New England and join the Buccaneers, taking Gronk with him.
The former Patriots tight end came out of retirement today, and informed the Patriots that he would like to be traded to Tampa Bay, obviously after a little coaxing from Brady.
Not too long after the news, Edelman, the longtime teammate of Brady and now left in New England on his own, unfollowed Brady on Instagram.

UPDATE: Edelman has since re-followed Brady.
