Earlier this week, FOX Sports' Jay Glazer suggested the New York Giants may trade the superstar wide receiver this offseason.

Fast forward to Saturday night, when New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady posted a seemingly innocuous photo of his three children to Instagram.

And guess who popped up in the comment section? Beckham, with the words, "Love u brother."

There's a chance this comment means nothing. There's also a chance Beckham knows exactly what he's doing by drumming up interest in his potential trade to the Patriots.

To be clear, New England hasn't been tied to Beckham in any substantial way. But the Patriots may have a need at the position with Chris Hogan, Cordarrelle Patterson and Phillip Dorsett all hitting free agency, and they're almost certainly not landing Antonio Brown.

This is far from the first time Beckham has showed love for Brady on the 'gram, as the 26-year-old wideout has a pretty long history of social media correspondence with TB12.

Beckham's latest display of affection happens to be conveniently-timed, though.
