When Julian Edelman was selected with the 232nd overall pick of the 2009 NFL Draft, no one in their right mind would’ve predicted the 5-foot-10 slot receiver would be a two-time Super Bowl champion.
Well, that’s exactly what Edelman is after helping the New England Patriots complete the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history against the Atlanta Falcons. In a wide-ranging interview with NFL Media’s Oklahoma Series, Edelman hit on several topics, including backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.
“He’s a confident guy, works hard. He’s handsome — that’s for sure. I don’t know how he’d [do] anywhere else, but from playing with him in some games in the regular season and practicing with him, I think he’s very good.”
As reported by several sources, the Cleveland Browns and Chicago Bears are squads expressing interest in the 25-year-old Garoppolo.
