    Tom Brady Addresses 'Bromance' With Julian Edelman

    The New England Patriots held their last practice at home Saturday before they get ready to head to Atlanta for Super Bowl LIII.

    Following the team's final practice in the bubble behind Gillette Stadium, quarterback Tom Brady spoke to the media where he was asked about his relationship with Julian Edelman.

    A reporter told Brady that Jason McCourty described the quarterback's relationship with the wide receiver as a "bromance" and said the two have a nonverbal communication.

    "Yeah, we have a great relationship, Jules [Julian Edelman] and I, and I trust him so much. We’ve put in so many hours together in the meeting room, in the film room. I think obviously he and I go back a long way," Brady said. "He’s always been kind of like my little brother, in a good way. I don’t have a little brother but he’s kind of like a little brother and he knows how much I love him."

    Local Business Supports Patriots in Sweet Way

    [NECN] Local Business Supports Patriots in Sweet Way

    Montilio's Bakery is showing its support for the New England Patriots in a sweet way--by baking an enormous 12 by 16 feet cake that can feed around 5,000 people. For the last three days, they have been spreading pounds of creamy frosting and getting ready to add the most distinctive of details, including a picture of Bill Belichick actually smiling. At Montilio's, they believe Patriots fans can have their cake and eat it, too. Greg Jones-Isaacson says it's just something about Boston and New England sports that brings everyone together. The sugary masterpiece--which is Funfetti flavored for those wondering--will be taken to Gillette for the Patriots send-off rally on Sunday. It will have to be delivered to Foxboro in multiple trucks, however, due to its size and then be reassembled before it's served to fans.

    Brady went on to praise Edelman for his on field accomplishments.

    "What he’s done with his career has been incredible and he’s so impressive as a player, as a leader – to go from playing quarterback in college to receiver in the pros and then to become really a dominant receiver in the pros, I think speaks to his work ethic. I’m so happy in everything that he achieves and obviously I can’t say enough good things about Jules."

    When it was brought up during the press conference that there are only two receivers in NFL postseason history with over 100 catches—Jerry Rice and Edelman—the quarterback continued to heap praise on No. 11.

    "Yeah, it’s really beyond incredible for Jules to do that. When you talk about Jerry Rice, that’s a guy that’s set every receiving record in the history of the NFL basically. For Jules to be right there as one of two guys including him, again it’s just such a credit to Jules," Brady said. "Look at his stature. He wasn’t built like Megatron [Calvin Johnson]. He’s just built the way he was built and I think he’s just worked so hard over the years to learn how to play receiver. I think his quarterback background’s probably helped him in terms of knowing where to be, knowing how to get open and knowing when the quarterback wants to get rid of the ball. He’s just done an incredible job."

    The Patriots QB was full of compliments Saturday, not just for Edelman, but for Rex Burkhead, Brian Hoyer, and the entire team.

    Brady said the team has done "such a great job" and he is "so proud of the guys" for making the commitment to do whatever it takes to win.
