Julian Edelman was born in 1986 and is 30-years-old. Jacoby Brissett was born in 1992 and is 23-years-old. That technically puts the two in “Generation Y” or what’s now being referred to as “millennials.”

Despite being part of the same “Generation Y,” thus making them both technically millennials, Edelman chose to distance himself from the often talked about generation. Maybe it’s because he doesn’t think he’s destroying this country. Or maybe it’s due to him being a veteran and Brissett’s rookie status.

After Brissett took over at QB and helped secure a 31-24 win for the New England Patriots over the Miami Dolphins, Edelman praised Brissett in an odd way.

Let’s now go back to the drawing board of who is a millennial.

According to the Pew Research Center a millennial is someone who is between the ages of 18-34 in 2015, which includes both Edelman and Brissett. More simply, millennials are men and women born between 1981 and 1997.

Edelman was born in 1986 and Brisset in 1992. So does that mean Edelman is also very mature for a millennial?

This isn’t the first time Edelman has made headlines with a funny or odd statement. Back in April, Edelman and Danny Amendola decided to make their own version of “Cops.”

Three months before that in January, Edelman showed off his crazy good Tom Brady impression.

While he’s rebelling against millennial culture, someone should ask Edelman what he thinks of SnapChat.
