Patriots Talk: Julian Edelman On Team Heading Into The Preseason

Only two days away from the Patriots’ first preseason game and already both teams are going at it to prepare themselves to see who will impress and will be cut before the season opener. As of now, both teams have been doing joint practice for the last few days but already both the Patriots and the Jaguars are ready to begin the preseason opener on Thursday, Aug. 10th. Wide Receiver Julian Edelman was available for the media to give his thoughts on what today’s practice.

As of now, both teams have been doing joint practice for the last few days but already both the Patriots and the Jaguars are ready to begin the preseason opener on Thursday, Aug. 10th. Wide Receiver Julian Edelman was available for the media to give his thoughts on what today’s practice.

“It’s always a little different the first day to come out, the second day to kind of get your feet wet, see what a team’s about, see how they’re going to play us. I mean, we didn’t really know how they were going to play us. We just wanted to see if we could go off our fundamentals, so it was good to come out here today and be able to work on those things.”

Edelman felt that the Patriots had the advantage with the Jags due to home field. However, there is much more to football than simply that:

“You know, I think we have to take advantage of tomorrow. We’ve got to go in, watch film, make the corrections. There’s a lot of guys out there. We’re still learning each other. We’re still trying to form our team, so you’re not really thinking about Thursday.”

With another day of practice for the teams, Thursday seems to be a good time to see what both teams will display for us. In other news, it has been confirmed that Former Patriots Nose Tackle, Vince Wilfork has retired from the NFL. Edelman had his thoughts on the player and his tremendous career.

“Big V. Man, it’s a sad day when the big fella hangs them up. I loved Big V as a teammate and his family. As a young player here in New England, there’s a lot of ups and downs. Vince, his wife Bianca and his family were just always there and I always had a shoulder to lean on with that family. I want to congratulate him on an unbelievable career.”
