Player Outlook

Julian Edelman has retired from the NFL, and we don't expect the 35-year-old receiver to play again, especially in 2021. The three-time Super Bowl champion finishes up his career with 620 catches for 6,822 yards and 36 touchdowns in 137 regular-season NFL games, all with New England. Obviously, he should not be drafted in any Fantasy leagues.

Player News
  • Edelman (knee) announced his retirement from football Monday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Edelman noted in a statement that the knee injury he suffered in 2020 prompted him to end his playing career. The 34-year-old thus concludes a productive NFL run that began in 2009, when the Patriots selected him out of Kent State in the seventh round. The three-time Super Bowl champion finishes up his career with 620 catches for 6,822 yards and 36 touchdowns in 137 regular-season NFL games, all with New England.

  • The Patriots are releasing Edelman (knee) with a failed physical designation, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Edelman's time in New England is up after 12 seasons. The Super Bowl LIII MVP and three-time 1,000-yard receiver's recent failed medical checkup represents his most recent misfortune in recovery from a chronic knee issue, which limited him to just six games in 2020. Recently, serious doubt has surfaced as to whether Edelman will be healthy enough to suit up for the start of the 2021 campaign. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Edelman's release is believed to be a prelude to a forthcoming announcement about his future in the NFL.

  • Edelman plans to "to try and gut out another season with (his) chronically troubled knee" according to Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald. While it appears as though Edelman, who turns 35 next month, will give it a go this coming season, it remains to be seen how the Patriots plan to proceed with him after signing Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne in free agency. When healthy enough to suit up, Edelman has the savvy to get open and rack up catches, but Guregian relays concerns regarding the veteran pass catcher's ability to make it through the entire season without his knee issues flaring up. Look for further context clues regarding Edelman's future with the Patriots to surface no later than the NFL Draft, which runs April 29 through May 1.

  • Edelman (knee) wants to continue his career but is 'still trying to see if he is healthy enough to be out there for the 2021 season,' Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Rapoport said that Edelman is progressing in his rehab process and wants to play in 2021, but that 'no decision has been made yet' about whether or not his knee injury will allow him to suit up. Edelman only played six games in 2020 before landing on IR, and though he was designated for return mid-December, he never progressed enough in his recovery to make his way back to the active roster. The Patriots also have a potential out from Edelman's contract this offseason, as cutting him would only result in a $2.7 million dead cap hit. Next season will mark Edelman's age-35 campaign.

  • Edelman (knee) won't be activated from injured reserve ahead of Sunday's season finale against the Jets, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports. The 34-year-old was designated to return from injured reserve in mid-December, but he never progressed enough to warrant activation. Edelman finishes the 2020 campaign with 21 catches for 315 yards and zero touchdowns to go with two carries for 22 yards in six games.
