FOXBORO, Mass. — Julian Edelman hadn’t seen Tom Brady’s latest commercial, so while the media was in the New England Patriots’ locker room Wednesday afternoon, a reporter took out his phone and showed the wide receiver.
His reaction to Brady’s acting performance in the Foot Locker ad that alludes to Deflategate?
“We need a little bit more (Al) Pacino in him,” Edelman said. “I’ll have to tell him that. …
“He’s pretty artistic when it comes to that kind of stuff. So maybe he was method acting. I don’t know.”
And Edelman’s reaction to the subject matter?
“I’m just here to try to play the San Francisco 49ers,” Edelman deadpanned.
