Tom Brady's relationship with and feelings about Donald Trump have been a source of speculation since before the 2016 presidential election.

With Trump at the forefront of the conversation around the NFL on Sunday after his criticism of the league's players the previous two days, Brady weighed in via Instagram by expressing fellowship with his fellow players.

The Patriots will be perhaps the most closely watched team during Sunday's national anthems. They were the first championship team to visit the Trump White House and owner Robert Kraft is a friend of the president's — though he did issue a statement earlier Sunday expressing his disappointment in Trump's recent comments.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers followed Brady's Instagram post with a similar one that contained many of the same words.
