Edelman isn't the only Patriot to pay their respects to the victims.

On Saturday, Patriots owner Robert Kraft flew to Pittsburgh to visit the Tree of Life Synagogue, according to NFL Network reporter Aditi Kinkhabwala.

On Oct. 27, Robert Bowers opened fire inside the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh's Squirrel Hill neighborhood, killing 11 people.
