Julian Edelman Cracks Quarantine Joke In Latest Instagram Post
July 13, 2020
Pretty much every NFL team is facing challenges at the moment. The coronavirus pandemic had a huge impact on the offseason, and this summer is different in so many ways. Teammates usually work out together every day in order to get well prepared for the upcoming training camp. Well, some players still take part in group sessions. But, this is in no way similar to the workouts they have had in the past few offseasons. New England Patriots wideout Julian Edelman works out like crazy, but he doesn’t really need a quarterback to impress his Instagram followers. He knows it all.
But Edelman spends a lot of time working out with a quarterback. His Instagram post didn’t come as a surprise, and fans had something to talk about. Quarantine workouts, everyone!
Edelman acknowledges the connection between a quarterback and his receiver. He and Tom Brady made the best quarterback-wideout duo in the NFL. The veteran wideout knows that quarterbacks need to connect with their receivers to lead the team to the top. Well, Brady is out now, and the coronavirus is still here. In other words, Edelman has to work out alone.
Julian Edelman fires up Instagram followers
Edelman was Brady’s little brother, and they were really strong together. However, TB12 joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in free agency, leaving Edelman in Foxboro. Jules will catch passes from Cam Newton, Jarrett Stidham of Brian Hoyer. He made a point. New England is his home, and Brady’s departure will serve as a motivation for the wideout.
Is he ready for the challenge? “Julian is Julian,” an anonymous Patriots player told Mike Giardi of the NFL Network. “He hates excuses. He hates to lose. He’s already got the red ass about this season. People thinking we’re no good and [that] he’s just a product of Brady.” Yes, he is ready.
Edelman has seen a lot of throwing sessions this offseason. He worked with Stidham and the “nobody believes in us” attitude will help him move on. Edelman was the Super Bowl MVP in 2018, and he will keep the same dominance in 2020. Without Brady, of course.
