-- Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola have had a busy offseason together so far.

Following a trip to Mexico and another to the Kentucky Derby, Edelman and his former Patriots teammate starred in their own Cops-inspired videos posted to Edelman’s Instagram on Wednesday.

Complete with the show’s theme song, these Cops videos show Edelman and Amendola working hard to solve “crimes” while playing shirtless ping pong and eating burgers in a hot tub.

The location is noted on the screen as Boston but, as Edelman notes, “Boston looks a lot like Southern California.”

The credits also jokingly list Robert Kraft as the executive producer of the “show.”

-- Rob Gronkowski’s model girlfriend, Camille Kostek, will grace the cover of this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue it was announced on Wednesday and Gronkowski couldn’t be prouder.

The retired Patriot posted his congratulations to Kostek on his Instagram story after the announcement was made.

“Congrats baby on the cover!!,” he wrote over a photo of Kostek on Good Morning America with Tyra Banks.

Kostek said landing this year’s cover after her rookie spot last year left her “speechless.”
