Julian Edelman Calls Alex Guerrero ‘Mr. Miyagi’ In Instagram Video

While Bill Belichick isn’t a fan of Alex Guerrero’s work in the training room, Julian Edelman doesn’t share his coach’s opinion.

The New England Patriots wide receiver posted a video to his Instagram on Wednesday, showing Guerrero giving him a rub down at the TB12 Center. During the video, Edelman refers to Guerrero as “Mr. Miyagi.”

This comes just a week after reports broke that Belichick “chastised” tight end Rob Gronkowski during training camp last season for training with Guerrero. So Belichick might have some words for Edelman when camp rolls around if those reports are true.

Guerrero and Belichick butted heads during the 2017 season, when the Patriots coach revoked his team privileges amid a reported power struggle with quarterback Tom Brady.

Edelman is recovering from a torn ACL that he suffered during the preseason last year, and New England will need him to be 100 percent in 2018, especially after they traded Brandin Cooks to the Los Angeles Rams. So if Guerrero helps Edelman get back on the field at full strength, then Belichick might have to let this one slide.
