Danny Amendola gets nostalgic, shares hilarious Julian Edelman video

It's been over a year since Danny Amendola left the New England Patriots, but his bond with best buddy Julian Edelman is as strong as ever.

Don't believe us? Check out the Detroit Lions wide receiver's Instagram post from Tuesday night.

It appears Amendola dug up old footage of Edelman serenading him with a personal remix of The Kinks' "Lola" while the two were on vacation in Medellin.

And while Amendola didn't seem amused in the video, his post drew the attention of musician Gary Clark Jr., who gave Edelman his stamp of approval in the comment section.

"@dannyamendola you shake your head but this is 🔥," Clark wrote, "@edelman11 I need that feature for my next album #dola"

Edelman's response:

"Was early, vocals weren’t warm yet..."

Not everyone was impressed by the Super Bowl MVP's vocal chords, though. Patriots safety Patrick Chung, for example, responded simply: "What’s wrong with you guys lol."

Amendola signed a one-year contract with the Lions in March after spending the 2018 season with the Miami Dolphins, but that hasn't stopped him from hanging out with his pal, as the two worked out together in Miami later that month.

Here's how Patriots wide receiver depth chart looks after Demaryius Thomas signing

Here's how Patriots wide receiver depth chart looks after Demaryius Thomas signing

The Patriots needed more depth at the wide receiver position, and they got it on Tuesday by signing veteran wideout Demaryius Thomas to a one-year deal reportedly worth up to $6 million.

Thomas, who suffered a torn Achilles in Week 16 of last season, tallied 677 yards and five touchdowns during his time with Denver and Houston in 2018.

This marks the Pats' third receiver acquisition of the offseason as they also signed Bruce Ellington and Maurice Harris to one-year contracts. Phillip Dorsett was re-signed on a one-year deal as well.

With that, here's an updated look at the Patriots' wide receiver depth:

  1. Julian Edelman
  2. Phillip Dorsett
  3. Demaryius Thomas
  4. Bruce Ellington
  5. Maurice Harris
  6. Braxton Berrios
  7. Matthew Slater
  8. Josh Gordon  (Currently suspended. Patriots used RFA tender worth $2.025 million.)
     

Of course, there's a chance Bill Belichick adds another receiver or two to the mix via the NFL Draft, which begins April 25.

The Patriots lost receivers Cordarrelle Patterson (Bears) and Chris Hogan (Panthers) in free agency this offseason.

Julian Edelman shows Celtics support with Instagram post

Julian Edelman shows Celtics support with Instagram post

The city of Boston has had great luck in winning championships over the course of the past two decades and recently, the city saw two teams, the New England Patriots and the Boston Red Sox, win their respective championships just months apart from one another.

And now, one of the key performers on the Patriots' Super Bowl team is wishing the Boston Celtics good luck ahead of the start of their playoff run. Julian Edelman, last season's Super Bowl MVP, posted on Instagram to send a message to the Celtics before they play the Indiana Pacers on Sunday.

It's always nice to see another professional athlete support local teams. It's clear that Edelman is a true fan of the other New England sports teams, too. He has also been to plenty of Celtics games since coming to New England, and he shared a moment with Kyrie Irving before the team took on the Lakers in L.A.

This isn't the first time that Edelman has posted about a Boston sports team this month. After the Red Sox home opener, Edelman threw out one of the first pitches and jokingly offered to help out their bullpen.

The Celtics start their playoff series with the Pacers on Sunday. They are at home for the first two games before hitting the road to travel to Indiana.
