Julian Edelman, like many of his former Patriots teammates, had a bittersweet reaction to Sony Michel being traded to the Rams.
“We’ll always have Atlanta bubs,” Edelman wrote, referencing his and Michel’s Super Bowl LIII win in Atlanta over the Rams. “Good luck in Tinseltown.”
Michel himself eventually took to social media to bid farewell to the organization he spent three seasons with.
His departure creates an opportunity — as well as legitimate pressure — for a pair of young Patriots running backs.
