On Wednesday, the Atlanta native did it again thanks to a viral video of Edwards, a noted football fan who played the game throughout his childhood, showing off his skills on the gridiron. After dropping a few dimes and hauling in a pass downfield, Edwards turned to the camera and said, “Don’t I look like something? What y’all think? I got a profession in this s—t or what? Pay me.”
Edwards’ showcase continued to make the rounds on social media Thursday, and eventually caught the eye of the great Tom Brady, who suggested the second-year standout should consider a career change.
“Ant I know the money is good but you’re playing the wrong sport bro. @NFL,” Brady tweeted in response to Edwards’s video.
The T’Wolves guard soon caught wind of the Buccaneers quarterback’s co-sign and replied with an “offer” to replace Brady’s right hand man, the recently retired Rob Gronkowski.
“Gronk gone, so what’s up???” Edwards said.
While the 6–foot-4, 225-pounder would make for an interesting replacement at tight end, Edwards would likely be much better off staying in his current profession, no matter how influential Brady’s input may be.
The 2020 No. 1 overall pick improved his numbers to 21.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game in his second season, and helped lead the franchise to its first playoff berth since 2018.
