Did Tom Brady fire back at 'dad bod' comments via Twitter?

Did Tom Brady fire back at 'dad bod' comments via Twitter?

Was Tom Brady, via his TB12 center Twitter account, firing back at those who took shots at his "dad bod" as seen in recent paparazzi photos?

Check out the pinned tweet at the top of TB12's Twitter 

It's no doubt in response to what GQ called "#TorsoGate"

He's come a long way from the 2000 NFL combine before he was made the 199th pick overall:

Brady's TB12 Method famously touts pliability, eschews weight training and promotes what some see as an untraditional diet for an elite athlete - remember him eating a strawberry with Stephen Colbert this past winter?

The soon-to-be-41-year-old (Aug. 3) Patriots quarterback will apparently have an early start on getting into football shape. He plans to be at training camp ahead of Wednesday's veteran reporting date.

Edelman won't take four-game PED suspension to court

Edelman won't take four-game PED suspension to court

We won't be following this four-game suspension through the federal court system the way we did another one.

Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman is not going to pursue an appeal of his four-game PED suspension in court and will sit out the first four games of the regular season.

Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network was first to report that Edelman wouldn't be going to court to appeal.

Edelman's teammate, Tom Brady famously took the appeal of his Deflategate four-game suspension through various federal court hearings before dropping the case before the 2016 season.

Edelman, 32, who missed all of last season recovering from ACL surgery, can participate in training camp and preseason games but will miss regular season games at home vs. the Texans Sept. 9, at the Jaguars Sept. 16, at the Lions Sept. 23 and at home vs. the Dolphins Sept. 30.
