What Julian Edelman Said During His Retirement Announcement (Full Transcript)Greg M. Cooper - USA TODAY Sports

(Here’s the Full Transcript From Julian Edelman’s Retirement Announcement:)

“Nothing in my career has ever come easy and, no surprise, this isn’t going to be easy either.  Now, I’ve always said, ‘we’ll go until the wheels come off’ and…they finally have fallen off.  Due to an injury last year, I’ll be making my official announcement of my retirement from football.  It was a hard decision, but the right decision for me and my family and I’m honored and so proud to be retiring a Patriot.”

“There are a million people I have to thank.  Mr. Kraft, the Kraft family, I’ve learned so much from you guys on and off the field.  Coach Belichick, you gave me my opportunity, always love you for that.  My teammates, we’ve gone to war, we’ve lost some, we’ve won some, you guys will always be my brothers.  To all my coaches that I’ve played under, I appreciate all your insight, all your hard work, all your knowledge.”

“To the entire Patriots organization from the meal ladies, the people that clean up after us, the people in the hallways, the training staff, the strength staff, we’ve shared so many awesome memories that I’ll never forget.  And of course, my family, you guys have always had my back.”

“It’s been the best 12 years of my life.  It’s a hell of a run.  And I can’t forget you, Patriot Nation.  You guys have welcomed me and my family to a region we do not know, we didn’t know.  But now, I’m one of you.  I’m going to leave you guys with two words.  Foxboro, forever.”
