AROUND THE WEB: 

-- Tom Brady was the second quarterback named to the NFL 100 All-Time Team this week and he posted a heartfelt message to Instagram for the first quarterback named, his “idol” Joe Montana. 

When I was 4 years old I watched Joe play at Candlestick Park on Jan. 10, 1982 and saw “The Catch”, one of the greatest plays in football history. It feels surreal today to be on this list alongside my idol. I’m very honored and humbled. I’m sure there’s a kid out there somewhere who’s looking at this list, watching tape of me and Joe and making plans to knock both of us down a spot. That’s why football is the best.

Brady will join Bill Belichick on the NFL Network Friday night to announce the rest of the quarterbacks on the All-Time team. 

-- Julian Edelman also used Instagram to send a message this week, but it was more playful than heartfelt. 

Edelman posted a picture of himself with Isaiah Wynn during the Patriots’ win over the Bills and joked that Wynn might be taking his advice too literally. 

Not what I mean when I say we need to pick each other up bro @iwynn77 --

“Not what I mean when I say we need to pick each other up bro @iwynn77,” Edelman posted, along with a laughing emoji. 

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "I just think it’s a shame that a guy who constantly gets caught cheating is even there because — I don’t know — his moral character leaves me kind of questioning.” -- Don Shula, on Bill Belichick
