When he’s not running in-cuts for the New England Patriots, Julian Edelman is busy being the NFL’s preeminent social butterfly.
The star wide receiver’s newest buddy? None other than defending Verizon IndyCar Series champion Simon Pagenaud.
The French driver, who’s great behind the wheel but damn near mentally scarring with a hula-hoop, is in Los Angeles for Wednesday’s ESPY Awards.
