Julian Edelman knows a thing or two about getting a uniform dirty.
The New England Patriots wide receiver plays the type of gritty, hard-nosed football that doesn't exactly keep a jersey clean. That style was the subject of Edelman's latest Instagram post Monday, and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had a solid retort in the comment section.
It's hard to argue with Brady on that one.
The Patriots offensive line, to its credit, deserves a ton of praise for keeping the 41-year-old quarterback off the ground throughout the 2018 season. Pro Football Focus ranked the Pats' o-line as the fourth-best group in the NFL during the regular season, and in the playoffs New England allowed only one sack of Brady through three games.
It's providing a solid amount of offseason entertainment for Patriots fans who still have many more months to wait before the six-time Super Bowl champion gets back on the field for his first meaningful game action post-Super Bowl LIII.
