Julian Edelman’s foot may hold him out of the pre-season, but it is not holding him back off-the-field. David Portnoy of Barstool Sports broke some Patriots’ off-field news early Sunday morning when he tweeted this out:
Hey @Edelman11 how was date night with @AdrianaLima #nantucketnights

TMZ confirmed Portnoy’s tweet a day later with two pictures of Tom Brady’s favorite target (and lap dog) walking in Nantucket with Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima. Edelman joins Brady (Giselle) and his buddy Danny Amendola (Olivia Culpo) as Patriots who date models.
Edelman clearly looks up to TB12 (who can blame him), who has since branded JE11, now dates the younger version of Giselle and was called the “off-brand” version of Brady by former teammate Wes Welker. Edelman responded to Welker’s comments with this photoshop:
@WesWelker probably the best compliment I've ever gotten #walgreensbrand #forquickrelieftryJE11 pic.twitter.com/q60njdIzJF

We all know the Patriots constantly win on-the-field and it looks like they are the best at what they do off-the-field, as well.
