Greg M. Cooper / USA TODAY Sports

Julian Edelman announced the end of his impressive 12-year career Monday, and his peers, colleagues, and former teammates flooded social media with messages of appreciation.

Chief among them was Tom Brady. Edelman's quarterback of 11 years with the New England Patriots wrote an extensive message, feting the tough-nosed, three-time Super Bowl champion.

Other Patriots who shared the field with Edelman paid tribute to "Squirrel."

It wasn't just Patriots new and old wishing the best to the former Super Bowl MVP. Many of Edelman's adversaries also shared their well-wishes.
