Julian Edelman Turns Patriots Into ‘Rogue One’ Stars In Instagram Post


The Force will be with the New England Patriots on Sunday when they take on the Baltimore Ravens.

In anticipation of “Rogue One,” the first standalone “Star Wars” film that premieres Friday, Dec. 16, Julian Edelman had some fun with Photoshop and Instagram. The Patriots wide receiver posted a photo of the official movie poster with himself, coach Bill Belichick and teammates Tom Brady, Chris Hogan, Martellus Bennett and Malcolm Mitchell transposed over the faces of the main characters.

This isn’t the first time Edelman has inserted himself into a “Star Wars” film, as he photoshopped himself wielding a couple of lightsabers before “Episode VII: The Force Awakens” came out. Brady also received the “Star Wars” treatment this season when sports/comedy website The Kicker likened his return from suspension to Han Solo being unfrozen from carbonite.
