The Patriots have declared that “almost anyone” is available heading into tuesday’s trade deadline. Of the many quality players that could get moved, this article will focus on wide receiver Julian Edelman.
The three time Super Bowl champion, Edelman has struggled this year, leading the NFL in dropped targets. It’s clear to everyone that he doesn’t have the same chemistry with Cam Newton that he had with Tom Brady.
Newton had this to say about the situation between both players : “Well we got to figure it out. We got to figure it out. Our wi-fi is definitely off. It’s frustrating because knowing the person Julian is and knowing the body of work that he puts in each and every week and day and from preparation to biometrically with his body, you fall in love with a person like that. With me, I just want to win. I just want to find a way to win, and as of late, that hasn’t been the case.”
With many teams looking to improve their passing game, a veteran like Edelman will catch a lot of interest. He would be able to bring a leadership aspect to younger teams or become a great second receiver on most teams.
While he probably won’t fetch anything more than a mid round pick, it’s time for the Patriots to move on from the player and his big contract to further their rebuild.
We will keep updating on trade speculations as they become available approaching the deadline.
