In the hours following Julian Edelman’s retirement announcement last week, the New England Patriots media team released two pieces of video highlighting some of the top moments from his career, and the most comical ones.
You can check out both in the YouTube links below.
On Thursday, head coach Bill Belichick offered up even more praise for Edelman during a press conference with the media, highlighting his difficult journey and the versatility he brought to the Patriots.
“Julian’s been one of the players that’s probably come further than most every other player that I’ve coached and his development from a quarterback in college to a receiver, a punt returner and even a defensive player, all positions that he never played, I’d certainly take sail as a punt returner as a receiver, for a number of years at those very difficult positions as quite an accomplishment, especially considering he wasn’t trained to do those things in college,” Belichick said.
“His toughness, his competitiveness, his play-making ability certainly is a big, big part of the backbone of our team. I have a ton of respect for Julian and what he accomplished in his career, how hard he worked to accomplish it and a great appreciation for all he’s done for me personally and our organization.”
Edelman retires from football as a three-time Super Bowl champion, a participant in four of them, and is second all-time in postseason receiving yards (1,442) and receptions (118).
As for what lies ahead for Edelman in retirement, maybe a return of smoothie tyme?
