The Manning cast has become the highlight of every NFL week after the matches. With its star-studded lineups and coverage of the game. It is the most entertaining show to watch if you are an NFL fan. 

One of the most enjoyable parts of the show is when the players and the guest make jokes or mimic each other. One such incident happened while covering the Buccaneers and the Giants game. Julian Edelman was shown a clip of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski having a conversation on the sidelines.

When asked what they were talking about, he started imitating them. While imitating Gronk, Julian said, “Hey Tom, I don’t think I’m quite ready. My lungs hurt a little bit. I need like two more days of practice, and I’ll be there, babe.” Then for Brady’s reply, Julian said, “Babe, I thought you did well today. You know, we gotta keep it going, we gotta get better.” 

Edelman described Tom Brady as the ultimate confidence guy for Gronkowski and said that is probably the extent of their relationship. Julian called Tom a ‘Babe guy’

Before Julian Edelman hung up his boots during the off-season, Tom invited him to play for the Buccaneers. Edelman played for 12 seasons in the NFL, and all 12 of them were in a New England Patriots shirt. He had the opportunity to join two other teams during his career. Julian was very close to making a move as well. Back in 2013, Edelman became a free agent, and he was on the phone with the New York Giants, but he decided to resign with the Patriots on a one-year deal. 

In 2020, Tom Brady offered him to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and reunite with him and Gronk. ” (Tom) hit me up the first day he signed there, like, ‘You wanna come down?’ ” But Julian denied the offer. “I was like, ‘Absolutely not.'”

The fans did not get to see the trio in action one more time, and it is very unlikely that they will play together again. Edelman just retired. Maybe we will see them on a show together someday.
