This isn't surprising because there has been reports about the Pats moving on for a while. From the sounds of it, they have been trying to convince Edelman to retire and he may be still wanting to give it a go again. The word was that the Pats were willing to help Edelman hook up with another team if that was what he wants. Could be why they are releasing him now rather than before camp.
Everything you want in a New England Patriot. Gritty, tough, smart, and gave his all on every single snap. I would be amazed if he doesn't go into broadcasting as he seems to have plenty of charisma and a good sense of humor.
I really hope they have a guy that’s going to bring that fire to the team. You just knew, when **** hit the fan and the other team was trying to be a bully, JE11 would be picking fights, making tough catches, and firing up his squad. Dude didn’t take **** from NO ONE on that field. My family and I are really going to miss watching him.
Do us all a favor Jules. Hang ‘em up and keep lifting your little girl up while you can!!
