From quarterback to the recipient
The injury forces Brady’s former weapon to terminate
For many years, quarterback Tom Brady and passport holder Julian Edelman were among the NFL’s best duo. They have won the Super Bowl three times together. Then Brady moves to Tampa Bay and Edelman is injured. The professional from the New England Patriots now draws conclusions from this.
Three-time Super Bowl champion Julian Edelman announced the end of his NFL career. His fellow professional soccer player Jacob Johnson won the New England Patriots the championship in the 2014, 2016 and 2018 seasons and is one of the premier ball recipients in the league. In the eleven years of his professional career, he has never played for any other team. He played his last game with a knee injury last October.
“Because of last year’s injury, I’m going to retire from official football. It was a difficult decision, but it was the right decision for me and my family. Video on Twitter.
Edelman’s career is especially noteworthy as he was still a college midfielder and only trained after signing the Patriots. He got 118 balls in the qualifiers, only Jerry Rice got more in the crucial stage of the season. After winning the Super Bowl in the 2018 season against the Los Angeles Rams, he was named MVP. In all three titles, Edelman had crucial sights in the final.
This is one of the reasons why Edelman was one of his most important teammates with midfielder Tom Brady in his long days with the patriot, as the receiver completed 41 passes from the star to relegation. Brady, who now plays for the Tampa Bay pirate team, wrote: “I’ve been rough as much as you can get and love you for everything I’ve done to make our teams the best they’ve ever been.” “You had a lot of your teammates who admired your work ethic and your will to win.”
Every now and then, the Patriots used his training and Edelman threw the ball himself – twice for the touchdown. “It was the best twelve years of my life,” Edelman said. Coach Bill Belischik admitted that Edelman was “the ultimate competitor and I had the privilege of coaching him”.
