Like most Patriots fans, Julian Edelman doesn’t want Tom Brady to leave New England in free agency.

It’s what prompted Edelman to start the “Stay Tom” campaign in an effort to help keep the 42-year-old quarterback — merchandise and all.

Well, Brady’s taken notice.

Shortly after Edelman promoted his latest set of “Stay Tom” gear Wednesday on Twitter, Brady chimed in on the conversation. And he raised an important point in the process:

“.@TB12sports How much do we make on our Julian Edelman merchandise? I assume this all evens out?” Brady tweeted.

Not quite the response fans were hoping for, but oh well.

Brady is set to hit free agency March 18.
