The New England Patriots on Sunday plan to honor long-time fan favorite and Patriots legend Julian Edelman during halftime vs. the New Orleans Saints. Edelman was one of the pillars of the Patriots’ second dynasty and will undoubtedly deserve all the praise that comes his way in his retirement.

The former slot receiver is beloved in the New England region and is described by many as the quintessential Boston athlete. The three-time super bowl champion and Super Bowl LIII MVP finished second only behind Jerry Rice in playoff receiving yards and playoff receptions.
Edelman always came through in the clutch for New England, and the fans will not soon forget everything he gave to this football team.
