    I wonder why the Patriots don't want him back, but sign Michael Jenkins, quite possibly the most underwhelming/average receiver in NFL history.

      Well the knock on Edelman is that he has been bitten quite a lot by the injury bug, ankle, foot, forearm, hand, you name it and some concussions to round things off. I guess the Patsies don't see Julian as a long term fixure but IMO he can be an excellent role player.

        Just read the post and I have to disagree with most of you about Elderman. Yes he is very versatile, but so is Jernigan. In fact, they are the same type player. Now if JJ was with the patriots, he would have been used way more than he was here because they had injuries at that position. We are much deeper at the receiver position than in NE. JJ also was solid returning punts at the end of the year for us. Now I'm not saying that Elderman is a slouch, but he could have been a forgotten man if he played here instead of NE.

          I agree, possibly an excellent role player. That's why it makes me weary that a team with an ideology so felicitously captured by "do your job" lets him walk with no fight.

          Wouldn't be the first time the Pats surprised me with a personnel decision, but what do I know? Pats are the gold standard in NFL management.

            Edelman would be a nice signing.

            He gives us depth for the slot in case Cruz gets dinged for a game or two, and he is a good Punt Returner.

            I believe he returns knockoffs too.

            The guy is just a good football player and is versatile.

            You can never have too many of those guys on your team.

              I would love a pick up like this if the price is right. His versatility alone makes him worth it and would provide solid depth at wr, cb and special teams.

                But where does that leave Danny "Superstar" DePalma?

                  JJ has done squat in the NFL. Comparing the 2 is completely asinine.

                      No one remembers who came in second.

                        4th spot + returns....this would be a great pick up IMO.....was Not used much with the pats, could be used as a weapon in different situations

                          It's not like Edelman has done exceptionally more... I mean, he's only had 69 receptions in 4 years of play.

                            Didn't he sign with the Bears?

                              He's an exceptional punt returner though.

                                He has a 13 plus yards per punt return in more that 70 attempts in career. That's remarkable.
