Tom Brady couldn’t be on the field Sunday night with his New England Patriots, but he still was on Julian Edelman’s mind.
That much was evident after the Patriots’ 23-21 season-opening win over the Arizona Cardinals, when NBC’s Michele Tafoya asked the receiver if he had a message for his suspended quarterback.
Edelman certainly did.
The connection isn’t surprising, since Edelman (Redwood City) and Brady (San Mateo) both are Northern California guys and late-round draft picks who worked their way into prominent roles in New England. Now Edelman just has to make it through three more games — and, he hopes, three more Patriots wins — before Brady returns from his Deflategate suspension.
