New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman's exciting offseason continued Sunday when he waved the green flag to begin the 2019 Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway.

Edelman is the latest NFL player to serve as the honorary starter at the "Great American Race." Check out a video of him waving the green flag in the Instagram post below:

It was just two weeks ago that Edelman and the Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl LIII at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The 32-year-old veteran caught 10 passes for 141 yards and was named Super Bowl MVP -- the second Patriots wide receiver ever to win the award.

In the time since that victory, Edelman has gone to Disney World with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, he got his beard shaved on the "Ellen" show and he started NASCAR's most prestigious race in style.

It's safe to say Edelman is enjoying the spoils of victory following the Patriots' sixth Super Bowl title.
