On Instagram Friday, New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman shared some motivational words heading into the weekend’s matchup with the Minnesota Vikings.

“No such thing as perfection, its just pursuit. #RelentlessMindset” the caption read.

In seven games back with the Patriots Edelman has logged 44 receptions for 510 yards and three touchdowns. In 2016, his last full season, Edelman had three touchdowns in 16 games.

Since his 2017 ACL injury that sidelined him for the entire season, Edelman has become more cognizant of his health.

This past Sunday against the Jets, Edelman went airborne multiple times prompting questions about how he’s protecting himself from further injuries when he hits the turf.

“I mean, sometimes you feel like you’re preserving yourself (when you go airborne),” he said Friday press conference, “because with the new rules, they’re not going to hit you high. So I’d rather tumble and fall on a back or a shoulder than have my knees taken out, which is the route this league’s going. So sometimes, that is that kind of decision.”

“I’m going to go out there, and I’m going to play hard,” Edelman said. “And obviously, you’ve got to play smart the older you get in this league. But I go 120 (miles per hour). That’s just what I do. Unfortunately, it’s a strength and a weakness.”
