Julian Edelman Thanks Veterans Who Protect Our Freedom With Amazing Instagram Post
November 11, 2019
Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman never forgets our veterans and this time he posted a few photos in order to thank them for everything they have done for our country. US veterans risked their lives to defend our rights and freedom, and Edelman honors their sacrifice and service.
Edelman isn’t the only Patriot who honored service men and women. Quarterback Tom Brady did the same, and he got a little help from his son Benjamin. Retired tight end Rob Gronkowski surprised army troops and yes, he always does that. It became a tradition for the retired tight end.
One of the best veterans on the field
When it comes to Edelman and his role with the Patriots, his season is really excellent. Although Edelman saves his strength for the postseason, this time he changed his tactics. It’s an important season for the Patriots, and Edelman is ready to give his best to help the team win another Super Bowl.
According to Skip Bayless, Edelman will earn his spot in the Hall of Fame. Yes, Edelman may not have good numbers in the regular season, his postseason is always good. He is No. 2 all-time in playoff catches and receiving yards. NFL legend Jerry Rice holds the top position.
Edelman has played 18 postseason games, and Rice has 29. According to Bayless, this is really impressive, and we couldn’t agree more.
The Hall of Fame discussion was opened after Rice said that Edelman has the greatest footwork in the NFL. Well, we believe that Rice’s compliments will help him play even better. Rice said that no player can ever over Edelman, because he can separate from players and make a catch. Rice is also impressed with Edelman’s great physicality, and the way he puts his body over the field. Well, head coach Bill Belichick is proud of his receiver, and has high expectations for the upcoming season.
Tom Brady said the same. Edelman is the best receiver in the league, and Brady always criticizes those who slam his teammate.
The Patriots lost the game to the Baltimore Ravens, and this was their first loss of the season. The Philadelphia Eagles are next on the list.
