Julian Edelman faces serious problems in his career after the terrible PED suspension. Edelman was removed from the field for violating the NFL’s PED policy. His appeal was denied, and it seems like things will go down the hill.
Edelman will miss the first month of the Patriots season, and he will also become a victim of bad timing.
Ryan Hannable of WEEI said that the Patriots wide out will return in Week 5, and New Englamd will play host to the Indianapolis Colts. This is less than ideal for Edelman because the game will be played on Thursday Night Football. What does this mean? He will have almost no time to shake off the rust of not being in the game for a month. So bad…
Edelman will come back in the week when Patriots practices will be just walkthroughs. No contact, no nothing. Bill Belichick may cater a day for contract, and that’s really unlikely to happen. This will help Edelman to feel the physicality of the game when all of them kickoff.
We don’t really know how will Edelman handle the break. He hoped to gain success with the appeal, but nothing worked according to his great plan.
