There may be down time from football at the moment, but the New England Patriots are staying busy with some interesting offseason antics.

Wide receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola are touring Mexico to help promote the NFL internationally and gear up for their game in the city against the Oakland Raiders. The Patriots and Raiders will meet on Nov. 19 for a matchup at Estadio Azteca.

Edelman, Amendola and company have explored the culture, met fans, played soccer and even tried their hand at wrestling. Most of their activities in Mexico City have been documented through their social media accounts.

Meanwhile, quarterback Tom Brady is overseas, spending time in China and Japan as part of a promotional tour with Under Armour. He spent the weekend visiting Beijing and will travel to Shanghai and Tokyo before heading back to the states.

Brady and one of his sons were seen tossing the football at the Great Wall of China over the weekend. The quarterback also took part in practicing some martial arts.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski is still up to Gronk-like shenanigans, as he was seen partying with Flo Rida on Saturday night at the Shrine Nightclub in Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Connecticut. A video captured by the Only in Boston Twitter account, shows the two cutting loose and poppin’ bottles all night long.

The Patriots return to Gillette Stadium at the end of July for training camp.
