Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola were joined by a special guest on their recent trip to the Lone Star State. Well, kind of. Edelman and Amendola appear to have spent the weekend in Austin, Texas, as both veteran wide receivers took to Instagram to share photos of their vacation. While Amendola’s post featured a boast about the duo’s hair, Edelman’s photo jokingly showed the two giving into a FaceTime session with Tom Brady. In the case of Edelman, there’s a chance Brady decided to reach out to get a head start on offseason workouts. As for Amendola, the New England Patriots quarterback might just miss his former wideout, who departed for the Miami Dolphins in free agency at the turn of the new NFL year. It also appears that Brady is a huge fan of FaceTiming in general. The five-time Super Bowl champion couldn’t even wait until he got home after the AFC Championship Game before jumping on a video call with Rob Gronkowski.

Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola may no longer be teammates, but that’s not stopping the wide outs from continuing their offseason bro-cations.

The duo appears to have spent some time down in Austin, Texas this weekend, enjoying the local scene along with a few drinks. The two documented their trip through their social media channels and in one photo it appears like they gave their pal Tom Brady a quick call.

The two can be seen looking into Edelman’s phone and by the wide out’s caption, Brady appears to be on the other end.

“Ok, we’ll [FaceTime] TB,” writes Edelman.
While Brady will have plenty of face time with Edelman in 2018 after missing the 2017 campaign due to a torn ACL, the quarterback will be missing one of his more trusted go-to weapons in Amendola. The receiver inked a two year, $12 million deal ($8.25 million guaranteed) with the Miami Dolphins earlier this offseason, ending his five year run with the organization.

In 2017, Amendola was particularly great at elevating his game on third down and Brady would look to him often in those situations. Of his 28 catches on third down this past season, Amendola was able to convert 25 of them for first downs. He also caught all four of his targets on fourth down and converted each of them for a first.

He was also extremely timely in the playoffs earning the fitting nickname “Playoff ‘Dola.” There, he caught 26 of his 33 targets this past run for 348 yards and two touchdowns. One of those two scores ultimately proved to be the game winner in New England’s comeback win over the Jaguars in the AFC Championship to punch their ticket to Super Bowl LII.

For the season as a whole Amendola was able to bring in 61 receptions for 659 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games.

While No. 80 would be out there to provide that clutch play for Brady and the Patriots going forward, it’s nice to see that’s still able to give his old quarterback a quick ring to say hi, proving there’s no bad blood.

As for relationship with Edelman, the two clearly are staying best friends off the field.

One of the more touching moments following Amendola signing his deal with Miami was Edelman’s tribute post saying goodbye to his now former teammate. The Instagram post has the two hugging on the field, draped in confetti following their epic come from behind win against the Falcons in Super Bowl LI.

They won’t be able to bang helmets on Sunday’s anymore, but clearly they’ve build a friendship through their days in Foxboro that go well beyond the gridiron.
