Patriots QB Tom Brady 'ready' for Super Bowl title defense in new Twitter photo

Patriots QB Tom Brady 'ready' for Super Bowl title defense in new Twitter photo

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady certainly has enjoyed his offseaason, but if his latest tweet is any indication, the six-time Super Bowl champion is ready to immerse himself in preparing for the 2019 NFL season.

Brady posted a photo to Twitter on Wednesday with a caption that illustrates his readiness for New England's upcoming Super Bowl title defense.

No team has repeated as Super Bowl champions since Brady and the Patriots accomplished the feat in 2003 and 2004. New England defeated the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl LIII for its sixth championship in franchise history back in February.

The Patriots lost several key players this offseason through free agency and retirement, including defensive end Trey Flowers and tight end Rob Gronkowski. That said, the Patriots do have 12 picks (tied for the most of any team) in this week's 2019 NFL Draft, so reinforcements are on the way.

Besides, when you have Brady at quarterback and Bill Belichick as head coach, that's really all you need, right?

Take a look at this cool photo of Bill Belichick at the Preakness Stakes

While there won't be a Triple Crown winner this year, Bill Belichick is 2-for-2 in attending the legendary races. 

After spending some downtime with his girlfriend Linda Holliday and Tom Brady two weeks ago at the Kentucky Derby, the future Hall of Fame head coach was spotted at the Preakness Stakes, staring down the eventual winner War of Will before the horse secured its victory. 

You can spot Belichick to the left of the jockey right above War of Will's tail. 

War of Will rebounded from a controversial loss at the Derby, where the original winner Maximum Security appeared to impede War of Will and Country House. The race went under objection review, and Country House was declared the winner while War of Will dropped to seventh. 

With the win, War of Will may have solidified itself as the rightful contender for the Triple Crown even though it will not get the chance to capture the sport's highest achievement. 

And as Field Yates alluded to in his tweet, game recognizes game.

Julian Edelman sings his heart out in tough to listen to karaoke session

Julian Edelman sings his heart out in tough to listen to karaoke session

Julian Edelman can do a lot of things. He can catch passes, win Super Bowls, and take home Super Bowl MVPs.

One thing he can't do as well? Sing.

Edelman posted several videos of himself on Instagram recently, jamming out and singing along to classic songs like "Hotel California" and "Jukebox Hero." You can see the results of that below, as captured by NESN's Dakota Randall.

Hey, at least he's having fun, right?

We'll give Edelman an A for effort and putting himself out there. But it doesn't seem that a singing career will be in the cards once he retires from the NFL.
