Pats star Edelman retires

New England Patriots star Julian Edelman announced his retirement from the National Football League on Monday, bringing the curtain down on a career that spanned 12 seasons and included three Super Bowl victories. The 34-year-old receiver, named MVP in the Patriots most recent Super Bowl victory in 2019, confirmed his retirement after his contract was terminated due to a failed physical. “I’ve always said I’m going until the wheels come off, and they’ve finally fallen off,” Edelman said in a video posted on Twitter that showed him sitting on the Patriots Gillette Stadium field at Foxboro. “Due to an injury last year, I’ll be making my official announcement of my retirement from football. It’s been the best 12 years of my life. It’s been a hell of a run.” The Patriots drafted Edelman in 2009 with the 232nd overall pick.
