We have it in writing, everyone. Tom Brady wants Odell Beckham Jr. in New England.

OK, we should explain. The Patriots quarterback posted a few Instagram photos Wednesday shouting out Aston Martin, one of his higher-profile sponsors.

And guess who popped up in the comment section? Brady's longtime Instagram buddy, who happens to be tied to rumors that the New York Giants may trade him.

So, Brady decided to stir the pot and invite Beckham to Foxboro for a "test drive."

We're sure no one in New England will overreact to this.

The Patriots do need wide receiver help this offseason with Phillip Dorsett, Chris Hogan and Cordarrelle Patterson hitting free agency, and Beckham isn't out of the question as a trade target.

Maybe the 26-year-old can swing by Bill Belichick's office after taking a ride with Brady?

Elsewhere in the comment section (yes, we're discussing multiple comments of a single Instagram post) Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman tried to persuade Brady into hooking up with his own Aston Martin ... to no avail.

Also, does former Patriot Chandler Jones need rescuing out in Arizona?

NFL free agency doesn't begin until next week, so at least Brady's Instagram mischief is giving us something to talk about until then.
