Julian Edelman is facing a suspension that could put a black dot on his football career. He’s trying to get in the game again, and he really hopes to get that appeal through. Edelman believes that his four-game suspension should be vacated. He based his appeal on the possibility that the National Football League mishandled his test results.
The Patriots wide receiver is waiting for more info on his status, and experts have already made their opinion. How will Julian Edelman get out of this?
Rob Gronkowski thinks that this is an “unfortunate” predicament, and Rodney Harrison gave Edelman an advice.
So, it seems like Edelman will take part in the Patriots’ training camp and preseason games. However, he may not be able to enjoy his season debut until October 4.
Let’s see what top names has to say of his situation:
“It’s an unfortunate situation. But he’s a hard worker, and he’ll have to speak for himself. Mistakes do happen. I’ve made plenty of mistakes in my life, so I just got to learn from them. It’s just a situation that we hope for the best,” Rob Gronkowski said.
“I’ve known Julian since his rookie year and he is a phenomenal athlete who takes his training seriously — it’s disappointing to hear today’s news. Elite athletes sometimes work with multiple coaches and health professionals as part of their training. Here at our facility, we take a natural, holistic, appropriate and, above all, legal approach to training and recovery for all of our clients. And anyone who would suggest otherwise is irresponsible, and just plain wrong,” Alex Guerrero noted.
Mike Golic has something else to say. No way I buy this. There is no conceivable way you can sell me on this one that they don’t know what it is, yet they suspended him for four games. I don’t get this one. The league has had egg on their face before and this does nothing to help that situation at all,” he said.
Let’s hope that things would go well for Edelman.
