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.

Brady has been pretty active on social media this month, whether it's tweeting photos/videos, posting on Instagram or commenting on posts from other accounts.

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.
