Julian Edelman Salutes Patriots Teammates In Instagram Photo Dump

'Nothing without my brothers fighting beside me in the trenches'


Julian Edelman, like any player who retires from the NFL, has a lot of people to thank.

The Patriots star announced his retirement Monday night following 12 remarkable years in New England. Edelman on Tuesday used an Instagram photo dump to honor some of the players he fought alongside while with the Patriots.

Those players included:

— Jonas Gray
— Tom Brady
— Danny Amendola
— LeGarrette Blount
— Chris Hogan
— James White
— Devin McCourty
— Jason McCourty
— Rob Gronkowski
— Matthew Slater
— Rob Ninkovich
— Dont’a Hightwoer

“Nothing without my brothers fighting beside me in the trenches,” Edelman wrote in the caption.

Take a look:

Edelman also tagged the following players in the comments section:

— Patrick Chung
— Joe Thuney
— Randy Moss
— Stevan Ridley
— David Andrews
— Malcolm Butler
— Stephon Gilmore
— Cam Newton
— Cordarrelle Patterson
— James Devilin
— Jamie Collins
— Jerod Mayo
— Vince Wilfork
— Chase Winovich
— Gunner Olszewski
— Jakobi Meyers
— N’Keal Harry

Given Edelman’s social media track record, there likely are many more farewell posts to come.
