Julian Edelman’s suspension isn’t sitting well with ESPN’s Mike Golic.
The New England Patriots wide receiver is facing a four-game ban for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, pending an appeal. The MMQB’s Albert Breer since has reported that Edelman’s failed test was “triggered by a substance that wasn’t immediately recognizable,” and Golic made clear Tuesday on ESPN’s “Golic and Wingo” that he has a huge problem with the way the league is handling the situation.
Edelman missed all of last season after tearing his ACL during a preseason game. The 32-year-old has been practicing with the Patriots this spring, though, and losing him for the first four games of the 2018 campaign would be a big blow to New England’s offense, which already lost wide receivers Brandin Cooks (trade) and Danny Amendola (free agency), among others, earlier this offseason.
