On Saturday, wide receiver Julian Edelman changed his Facebook, Twitter and Instagram profile pictures to a photo of the back of Gordon’s jersey.

Edelman also shared a photo on Instagram with the caption “Feel better soon bubs.”

“There wasn’t much reaction,” Brady said about the news during his Friday press conference. “We all wish him the best. I think that’s kind of how we all feel. We want him to do what’s right for him.”
