It's safe to say that no Patriot will take Tom Brady's departure harder than Julian Edelman.
Exhibit A: Edelman's tribute video he posted on Twitter Tuesday. A heartfelt montage with Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" accompanying it.
Edelman, of course, was one of TB12's favorite targets in their 10 years together as teammates - that included three of Brady and the Patriots' six Super Bowl titles. The receiver also started selling t-shirts and other merchandise recently as part of a campaign to get Brady to stay in New England.
Now, that merch will become a real collector's item.
