Usually when athletes claim their social media accounts were hacked, it's just an excuse.

But, not this weekend for Julian Edelman.

Edelman had two posts saying he could get people verified for $500, which obviously were not from him.

The 33-year-old noted on Twitter he was hacked and made a joke about it.

Edelman spent his weekend taking part in the Best Buddies Challenge, which included a football game Friday night and bike races from Boston to Hyannis Port on Saturday.
