Bill Simmons is a noted New England Patriots fan with every fiber of his being. His fandom even got him fired from ESPN when he would not cooperate with their Deflategate narrative.
Now Simmons is suggesting that Julian Edelman might be on his way of out New England when he stated on ‘The Herd’ with Colin Cowherd that the veteran WR could get traded to the Detroit Lions.
“Even Edelman, it seems like he might be headed to Detroit, is that official?” Simmons said to Cowherd.
Cowherd responded, “it’s talked about.”
The 34-year-old Edelman recorded 1,117 yards receiving and six touchdowns during the 2019 season.
Aside from his talk about Edelman — Simmons also spent some time ranting about Brady leaving the Patriots to sign with the Tampa Bay Bucs.
“WHY NOW?? It’s been 20 years! You have a chance to have one of the all-time careers: drafted by a team and finishes your career with the team. Didn’t you watch the reaction with Kobe in Los Angeles and how much he meant to people here because he stayed here the whole time? Like what is better than that for a legacy? You’re going to go to Tampa, play for Bruce Arians, and have a bunch of 75-year-olds in the stands on a team with no history? How do you do this?? How is this how your career ends? I just don’t get it… I think he’s just going to keep going until this thing ends badly, and he has that same season that Peyton Manning had when Manning had 9 TDs and 17 INTs and people were wondering if Brock Osweiler should take his job. Is that how Brady wants this to end? I guess it is.”
That rant could be heard around the 8 minute mark in the above video.
