PHOTOS: Julian Edelman Shows Respect To Malcolm Butler

Although their time as teammates in New England didn’t end the way they had hoped for, Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman still has plenty of love and appreciation for Malcolm Butler.

On Tuesday, Edelman shared photographs of the two together over Instagram.

The first photograph was an embrace on the field after Sunday’s game and the second was from their 2015 Grammy Awards appearance.

“Nothin but respect for my brother” Edelman wrote in an accompanying caption.

Leading up to this past Sunday’s reunion, Edelman was complementary of Butler despite his struggles in 2018 with his new team;

Malcolm’s Malcolm,” Edelman said last Wednesday. “He’s a strong player who plays the ball well in the air. He’s gotten beat a couple times, but that’s the nature of his game. He’s a real aggressive player that competes, plays the ball well through your hands. He’s long — upper body. He’s got that ability to make up speed with the ball in the air while looking back. A lot of corners can’t do that. I got a lot of respect for Malcolm. He’s a hard player that competes, and his road to where he’s got shows how hard he works. He’s a stud.”
