Edelman commented on the post asking his teammate to hook him up with one of the cars. And Brady shot back with a joke reminding Edelman he has only won one Super Bowl MVP.

Team @AstonMartinLagonda stole the show in Geneva. I’m gonna need a bigger garage...

"Still waiting for my car bro...," Edelman wrote, to which Brady responded, "Guy wins one super bowl MVP..."

You only get unlimited Aston Martins once you’ve won four Super Bowl MVPs, it seems.

-- The wife of a Patriots player defended Rob Gronkowski on Thursday after he was criticized for a picture taken with Camille Kostek on their vacation in Mexico.

The photo shows Gronkowski grabbing Kostek on a boat in Cabo San Lucas.

At least one person took issue with it.

And Shelby Waddle, the wife of Patriots lineman LaAdrian Waddle, defended Gronkowski with a mic-drop response.

“That’s bec Odell hasn’t won a significant game since going on a boat before a playoff game & Rob is in the off-season after winning the SB (doing his job),” she tweeted. “Nice try tho.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "I mean, obviously it's something that we didn't expect, but we'll adjust. Not of this magnitude obviously, but we went through it in the ALDS. We found out he was hurt at 4 and we made adjustments throughout. So we will." -- Alex Cora, on Steven Wright’s 80-game suspension for violating MLB's substance-abuse policy after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs
