Danny Amendola gets nostalgic, shares hilarious Julian Edelman video

Danny Amendola gets nostalgic, shares hilarious Julian Edelman video

It's been over a year since Danny Amendola left the New England Patriots, but his bond with best buddy Julian Edelman is as strong as ever.

Don't believe us? Check out the Detroit Lions wide receiver's Instagram post from Tuesday night.

It appears Amendola dug up old footage of Edelman serenading him with a personal remix of The Kinks' "Lola" while the two were on vacation in Medellin.

And while Amendola didn't seem amused in the video, his post drew the attention of musician Gary Clark Jr., who gave Edelman his stamp of approval in the comment section.

"@dannyamendola you shake your head but this is 🔥," Clark wrote, "@edelman11 I need that feature for my next album #dola"

Edelman's response:

"Was early, vocals weren’t warm yet..."

Not everyone was impressed by the Super Bowl MVP's vocal chords, though. Patriots safety Patrick Chung, for example, responded simply: "What’s wrong with you guys lol."

Amendola signed a one-year contract with the Lions in March after spending the 2018 season with the Miami Dolphins, but that hasn't stopped him from hanging out with his pal, as the two worked out together in Miami later that month.

Why Dontrelle Inman chose the Patriots: 'I like winning'

Why Dontrelle Inman chose the Patriots: 'I like winning'

The New England Patriots overhauled their receiving corps this offseason, and one of the additions to their team was Dontrelle Inman. The five-year NFL veteran joined the Patriots on a one-year deal after spending last season with the Indianapolis Colts.

And Inman's reason for joining the Pats was simple.

“I like winning,” Inman said via NESN's Doug Kyed. “It’s one of those things like being part of a winning organization, you want to try to help the team win. That’s why I made my decision.”

Inman made the playoffs for the first time last year with the Colts. Indianapolis went 10-6, earned the sixth seed in the AFC, and beat the Houston Texans before falling to the Kansas City Chiefs in the divisional round. Now, Inman wants more.

Given the fact that the Patriots have a need at wideout and have made the Super Bowl in three straight seasons, this seems like the perfect destination for Inman. He'll be able to fight for playing time with veterans Philip Dorsett, Maurice Harris, Demaryius Thomas, and a plethora of rookies to earn a role on a winning team.

If Tom Brady warms up to Inman, he could find the form that he had in the 2016 season when he caught 58 passes for 810 yards and four touchdowns (all career highs). But at the least, if Inman can prove to be a reliable weapon, he should have a chance to replicate his numbers from Indianapolis (28 catches, 304 yards, three touchdowns).

And if Inman makes the roster, he will definitely have a chance to win.

Turns out the Pats weren't all that healthy in 2018>>>

He's no Tom Brady: Patriots subtly troll Aaron Rodgers over beer chug

He's no Tom Brady: Patriots subtly troll Aaron Rodgers over beer chug

David Bakhtiari was just trying to have some fun with his quarterback.

The Green Bay Packers offensive lineman roped Aaron Rodgers into a beer-chugging contest Thursday night at the Milwaukee Bucks' playoff game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

To say Rodgers lost would be putting it kindly.

In Rodgers' defense, this was an unfair fight. Bakhtiari can put down beers like glasses of water. But as many on Twitter pointed out, there's another high-profile quarterback who recently chugged a beer in public ... with much more success.

The New England Patriots helpfully pointed their Twitter followers to this moment Friday.

Yes, that's QB Tom Brady during a 2018 appearance on "The Stephen Colbert Show" slugging a beer in less time than he stands in the pocket.

Here's a side-by-side of Brady vs. Rodgers, beer-chugging edition:

We're pretty sure this settles the "best NFL quarterback" debate once and for all.

For his part, Rodgers suggested he's just not a beer-chugging guy after the video went viral.

But excuses won't win you drinking contests ... or six Super Bowl titles.
