On Wednesday, Julian Edelman became the latest member of the New England Patriots to share a public service announcement regarding the importance of social distancing and staying home during the coronavirus pandemic.

Fake Boston accent and all, Edelman recited the following message to New Englanders;

“Boston. I know this is a crazy surreal time, something we have never really experienced in our lifetime. With spring coming up we’re so used to having Patriots Day, Marathon Monday, Opening Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Passover — all these crazy awesome events that we have to adjust to and we have to do differently because of the circumstances we are under,” he began. “But as Mayor Marty, my guy, Marty Walsh always says, Boston is a city built on comebacks.”

Take a listen to his full plea in the tweet below.

Edelman also highlighted the importance of these measures while thanking all those working on the frontlines during the pandemic.

“It’s a necessary thing,” Edelman said. “I honestly want to say thank you to the people who are putting their neck on the line out there. Medical pros, police departments, our fire departments, people that are delivering food, it’s crazy to see how we all are coming together to work together because of these circumstances, and we have to continue to do that.”

The PSA wrapped up with Edelman wearing a pair of gloves different from the ones he usually wears accompanied by a mask.

“Like they say…Stay healthy, stay safe, stay inside”, Edelman concluded.

The appreciation messages didn’t stop there, on Tuesday Edelman thanked more medical professionals with a special “World Health Day” video.

The New England Patriots and owner Robert Kraft accomplished an unprecedented mission to buy, donate, and deliver much needed N95 masks to hospitals in Massachusetts and New York this past week.

Kraft had 1.2 million N95 masks flown into Boston from China to help replenish the inventory of PPE (personal protective equipment) at hospitals in Massachusetts.

300,000 of those masks will also provide aid in New York city and state.

According to ESPN, The Kraft family paid $2 million, about half the cost, to acquire the masks.

The initial order was for 1.7 million masks, but only 1.2 million could fit on “Air Kraft”. The remainder of the masks, about 500,000, are set to be delivered in another shipment.

During an online press conference via Zoom on Thursday, running back James White mentioned how proud he was to be a Patriot following Kraft’s donation.

“I’m extremely proud,” he said. “He does stuff like that all the time. It starts from the top, as soon as you step in the building you see how much community work the Kraft family does and it’s very infectious. Each and every person who steps in the building tries to do as much as they can to help others out. It’s really cool to see and I hope all of us can do whatever we can to help others in this trying time.”

As the sports world continues its hiatus, New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman decided to share an old college football highlight over his Instagram Tuesday.

Set to Drake’s “Nonstop”, Edelman showed off a nasty touchdown run from his senior season at Kent State University in a game against the University of Louisiana-Lafayette in 2008.

“#TBT on a Tuesday because no one actually knows what day of the week it is anymore”, Edelman jokingly wrote in an accompanying caption.

Edelman was a three-year starter at quarterback for Kent State from 2006-2008.

During his senior season, Edelman was the Golden Flashes’ leading passer, completing 56% of his passes (153 of 275 passes for 1,820 yards), he threw 13 touchdowns to 11 interceptions. He was also their leading rusher, gaining 1,370 yards on 215 attempts (an average of 6.4 yards per carry) and scoring 13 touchdowns.

Edelman’s total offense in 2008 set a school single-season record previously held by former NFL’er Josh Cribbs.

In May 2019, Edelman completed his degree from Kent State and graduated as a senior integrated studies major. He was previously inducted into Kent State’s Varsity “K” Hall of Fame in 2015.
