Tom Brady is taking a break from his bromance with New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman.
Edelman caused Brady’s first interception of the season Sunday, when he dropped a pass, and it deflected into the waiting arms of Indianapolis Colts safety Mike Adams, who then returned the pick for a touchdown.
“Yeah, I haven’t spoken to him all week, so he knows I’m mad at him,” Brady joked. “He’s good. He’s a former quarterback. Those things happen. He’s made so many great catches and run after catches, and he’s been a phenomenal player for us. I love Jules. Jules is another guy who has accomplished so much, came in as a quarterback, switched to receiver, has really built himself into what he is. He’s got an incredible work ethic. You know, he and (Jets cornerback) Darrelle (Revis) had a lot of great practice interactions last year where they were going one-on-one against one another, so he’s a guy who’s definitely a huge playmaker for us and we’re going to need him to make a bunch of plays on Sunday.”
Edelman is off to the hottest start of his career, despite two drops in Week 6. He has 40 receptions for 449 yards with four touchdowns and three carries for 23 yards in five games.
Edelman and Revis might face off again Sunday when the Jets come to Foxboro to play the Patriots. The Patriots last played against Revis when he was a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2013. He didn’t cover Edelman in that matchup.
