Did Julian Edelman retire because he was afraid to tell Bill Belichick he wanted to go to Tampa Bay with Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski?
Tom Brady laid the groundwork for that conspiracy during an NFL Network Zoom call that featured him, Edelman, Kevin Hart, Deion Sanders and a few others.
“We know Julian didn’t retire,” Brady said. “Let’s be honest, he’s just too scared to tell Bill (Belichick) he wants to come to Tampa.”
Brady then quips: “I’ve been there.”
On Sunday, Edelman made it clear that he isn’t going anywhere.
“Ain’t going any where Bubs #foxboroforever”
The veteran wideout, who turns 35 next month, was limited to just six games in 2020 due to a knee injury. He spent his entire 12-year career with the Patriots, who added him as a seventh-round draft pick out of Kent State back in 2009.
