Julian Edelman isn't going to dwell on the past. Not while there's work to be done. Speaking with the media Monday morning for the first time since Tom Brady's departure in March, Edelman shared his thoughts on losing the only starting QB he's had throw him the ball in the NFL.
If you’re keeping score, as the result of disciplinary action by the league for Spygate, Deflategate and the Bengals taping incident, the Pats have now lost: two first-round picks, a third-round pick and a fourth-round pick. That is a ton of draft collateral, especially for a team that has not drafted well in recent years.
Last year, despite a career high in receiving yards, Edelman’s play had slipped by year’s end. During the regular season, he led the NFL with a whopping 13 drops. Maybe that was the result of injury, maybe that was the result of overall workload resulting from four Super Bowl appearances in the five previous years, maybe it was the result of … age.
