During the coronavirus crisis, many athletes have used their platforms to spread messages about staying safe amid the pandemic.
On Friday, New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman became the latest to chime in.
Edelman sent out a simple message about defending home-field advantage and encouraged his fans to #StayHome. Here's a look at Edelman's tweet via his personal Twitter account.
This gesture was greatly appreciated by Edelman's fans. All you have to do is take a look at some of the responses to the tweet to see just how much his endorsement of social distancing rang true with New Englanders.
Edelman, soon to be 34, is entering his 12th season with the Patriots after being a seventh-round draft pick out of Kent State. He caught 100 passes for 1,117 yards and six touchdowns last season and will look to find success for the first time in his career without Tom Brady at quarterback.
And Edelman may well be the face of the offense in New England's transition to the post-Brady era. So, his message to fans may resonate even more as one of the most familiar faces still remaining on offense.
Tom Brady's Sunday afternoon of golfing with Peyton Manning, Tiger Woods, and Phil Mickelson was eventful, to say the least.
The ex-New England Patriots quarterback began "The Match" by struggling through the first six holes. Then, he finally got back on track with an amazing shot that briefly quieted the naysayers.
Unfortunately for Brady, the shot may have been overshadowed by him simultaneously splitting his pants. Just look at the photo below:

As you can imagine, Twitter had some fun with Brady's mishap:
It's OK, Tom. It happens to the best of us.
Tom Brady has a thing for comebacks.
The former New England Patriots quarterback was struggling mightily through the first few holes of "The Match" on Sunday. Then, he totally redeemed himself.
Just watch this shot below and enjoy:
"Shut your mouth, Chuck," Brady said to Charles Barkley, who had been chirping him throughout the match.
We should have known a comeback was around the corner. Didn't 28-3 teach us anything?
Just as Twitter had a field day with Brady's early struggles, it enjoyed watching Brady sink that improbable shot:
Bravo, Tom. Bravo.
