Tom Brady, Gronk jet to Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight
Saturday May 2nd, 2015

A group of New England Patriots players left the Kentucky Derby to take a private jet to the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight on Saturday. 

Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman posed for a photo from the jet, still fresh in their Derby clothes as they head to Las Vegas.

Quarterback Tom Brady, who was part of the Patriots group that attended the Kentucky Derby, is also expected to attend the fight, according to's Greg Bishop

Edelman posted the photo from the jet at 6:50 p.m. ET, so it sounds like they didn't stay for the race and missed American Pharoah's win
