Brandon Noble, former NFL player, delivers food to those on the front lines fighting coronavirus.
A week after FS1’s Nick Wright suggested on his show, “First Things First,” that the Patriots could use “Julian bleeping Edelman” in a trade for the Lions’ No. 3 pick, the wide receiver hit back.
“Nice hairline bro,” Edelman wrote in a now-deleted tweet directed at Wright early Saturday morning.
Wright’s trade scenario had the Patriots trading up to land Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who would then replace Brady.
“If [Lions general manager] Bob Quinn and [coach] Matt Patricia gift Tua Tagovailoa to the New England Patriots and Bill Belichick for the 23rd pick, a third-round pick and Julian bleeping Edelman, I’m out,” Wright said on the show. “I don’t know if I’ll be able to watch this sport again because I can’t deal with the idea of it.”
It wasn’t the first time this offseason that Edelman had been connected to a potential trade.
After Brady agreed to sign a two-year, fully guaranteed $50 million contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Edelman “liked” a tweet from Deion Sanders that wondered if his favorite target could go with him.
“If @TomBrady goes to the @Buccaneers can @Edelman11 go to?” Sanders, a CBS-NFL Network analyst, wrote. “That’s like Jordan without @ScottiePippen, peanut butter without jelly and Ice Tea without Sugar. #Truth”
Last season, Edelman finished with 100 receptions for 1,117 yards.
