New England Patriots wide reciever Julian Edelman played in a career-low six games in 2020 following knee surgery.

Despite the rather forgettable year for the former Super Bowl MVP, Edelman spoke with Barstool Sports’ “Pardon My Take” last week and discussed his future alongside how it feels to be watching old teammates Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski make another run to the Super Bowl without him.

A notable takeaway, as you’ll listen to below, Edelman has no immediate plans to retire from football.

“What are you talking about?” Edelman said. “Right now we’re being a dad right now and we’re sitting back training, getting our body right for the next year and it’s a time to get away from football right now. It was a long, crazy year.”

“I don’t know. We’re not there yet. This whole year was so jacked up, man. It was so long. I just need to decompress for a little bit. I am out in L.A. right now and taking my kid to school and picking her up, and doing those kind of things that you don’t get to do during the season. I am enjoying that right now, so I don’t necessarily know what [you’re] talking about.”

Edelman has one year remaining on the two year contract extension he signed in the spring of 2019.
