For some reason I was able to take Brady moving on without any emotional reaction. Business and all that. But this definitely tugs at me -- such a great true Patriot, representing everything the franchise has symbolized for the past 20+ years. To me he's part of the "True Patriots Troika," along with Bruschi and Troy B.
I feel the same. Enjoying Tom in Tampa but emotionally Troy Freakin' Brown, Bru and The Squirrel were hard to take retiring.

We don't win those 3 Superbowls without Edelman. He was a beast in all 3.

Not sure which is a more iconic play. Getting pummeled by the Seahawks and getting up and continuing or the crazy catch against atlanta?

Easily my favorite patriots receiver. Welker might have better stats. But when it came down to it in the big game Edelman always made the play

Brady & Gronk are walking into the HOF but this really caps that era imo. One of the toughest, most versatile players I've had the privilege in watching. What a player. Offense, defense, ST.

One the best WR I've seen period. His hands, hand/eye coordination and footwork were just top notch. One of the return men I've seen. Answered every call, great teammate.

I'm very lucky to have seen him play. I'll miss those whip routes. Not many guys his size took the hits he did in an open field. Guys 25+ lbs heavier getting 10 yards off steam before contact.

Such a key cog to the team success.

I don't care what anybody says, best WR in the history of the Patriots franchise. Also love Troy Brown or Welker too but let's forget stats, when it mattered the most JULES was the epitome of the hear of a champion !!!!

I think for me it hits harder because I know this is the end of the road for Edelman, whereas Brady was joining a stacked team that provided a nice season-long distraction to compensate for him not being on my team anymore.
