Earlier today, longtime New England Patriots receiver Julian Edelman announced his retirement from the National Football League after 11 seasons.

Edelman, 34, was drafted by the New England Patriots in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL draft, where he’d go on to win three Super Bowls with the team and become one of Tom Brady’s most trusted weapons in the process.

After officially announcing his retirement on Twitter, Brady — who left New England prior to last season — sent his former go-to slot receiver well wishes and congratulations on a great career.
