There have been reports about a potential NFL return for former New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, but some other huge news regarding the former Super Bowl MVP emerged on Tuesday.

According to Patriots beat reporter Zack Cox, Edelman will be getting his own “A Football Life” episode on NFL Network, which is an honor usually given to legendary players after their playing career is done.

Considering Edelman may return to the NFL and was a player that was solid but never elite during his playing career, there is certainly some controversy surrounding this decision from the NFL Network.

Some are definitely excited to see the upcoming episode on Edelman’s career in New England.


On the other hand, others believe that Edelman didn’t exactly have the career that some other players have had that have been featured on “A Football Life”.

While Edelman was very solid over his career and played a big role on some great Super Bowl-winning Patriots teams, he also never even made a Pro Bowl appearance over his 11-year NFL career.

Regardless it should certainly be interesting to see this episode on Edelman’s career considering he had a very interesting story, coming to the NFL as a quarterback out of Kent State and sustaining a long career despite being a seventh-round draft pick.
