    Edelman said himself that he is a player that will only get better with playing time.

    You can't throw him out there 6 snaps a game and expect him to make tough catches.

    With luck Tom Martinez will get to see his pupil raise a Lombardi once more.

    I can help but think if Brady selected Edelman to get together with him and Martinez that there's more credibility to the rumors that Welker will be traded.

    Welker and Edelman have same assignments usually, but why get rid of the best slot receiver in the NFL? Having Edelman as a backup to give Wes a breather and having him return kicks to save Welker from injury seems like a good investment....:confused:

    I think it comes down to the benefit you get keeping the status quo v. having Edelman take over and getting someone else to fill Edelman's current spot.

    Edelman will costs less, and is younger and faster. Also, how do we know that Edelman won't take off if given more playing time? Furthermore, how much more does Welker have left in the tank?

    I don't know the answers to those questions but I imagine that those are questions BB will be considering when making his personnel decisions when free agency starts.

    That would be a literal non sequitur ("it does not follow"). He "chose" Edelperson because Edelperson was actually in Cali at the time.

    I believe it also has a lot to do with durability.....other than the bad injury Welker had, which he recovered in record time from, Wes has been fairly durable....I believe Edelman has been dinged up a few times already in his short career....

    Ya can't help the club from the tub...as the old saying goes :D

    If Edelman takes anyone's position it will probably be Brach's.

    Also, Brady chose Edleman because he needs more work.

    Welker already has Bradys trust. Yes, Wes dropped some catches that he usually makes last season, but coming off knee surgery thats to be anticipated.

    Edleman has a long way to go to be Wes Welker if you ask me.

    How do we know he wasnt in Cali mainly for the purpose of working with Brady?

    Ultimately, we don't know what's going on behind the scenes, I just think it makes the rumors a bit more likely, as with all things, time will tell.

    You're trying to trick us. I checked and there's no Brach on the roster so yeah, it's easy to beat him out.

    Uh, Edelperson LIVES out there. It is significant that via whatever means he's gotten one-on-one time with the GOAT

    Julian Edelman is with Brady because even though he only had 7 rec he's still the 3rd best WR on the roster, Brandon Tate is a KR who will catch a deep ball here and there and Taylor Price could not get on the field as a rookie

    Because our GM/Head coach is Bill Belichick, Welker will be a free agent after this season. Buy low/sell high. Because WW failed to toe the line regarding not bring attention to yourself in a press conference.

    No player trade would surprise me. Even if BB traded away Brady.

    Edelman may be ready as slot...but I'd hate to trust that position to a player that can't seem to stay on the field....

    I like Edelman and hope he has a great season....whatever his rôle is...

    Because, like Edelperson, they had to teach him what it meant to be an NFL WR, since he came from a wacky run-heavy offense, and due to the NCAA's asinine rules, he couldn't join the team until OTAs were almost all over.
