There’s a lot of excitement around New England. Cam Newton is officially a Patriot for one year. A lot of people seem to be happy with the move. The most recent one? Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman.

So this makes a few things clear about Julian Edelman.
He’s (Mostly) Over Tom Brady
It’s hard to get over a first love. In the NFL, Edelman’s first love was and will forever be Tom Brady. I was curious to see how Edelman would react to not having Brady around. Would he not say anything because he misses Brady that much? Or, would he use it as motivation and be ready to go with whomever will be throwing him the ball in 2020? Looks like it’s more of the second option, if anything.
The Leadership Factor
It looks like Edelman is taking a leadership role with this new look Patriots team. He’s the type that wants to be vocal about what’s going on around him. “Minitron” is going to continue to put his nose to the grindstone and work. Whether it’s Cam Newton or Jarrett Stidham throwing him the ball in 2020, or maybe even both, he’s going to be ready. It’s great to see that Julian Edelman wants this team to be as good now as they were back in the Brady days. (Isn’t that weird to say/think about still?)
If Julian Edelman is happy to have Cam Newton and get ready to work, there’s something there. I’m not going to lie, I HATED the thought of Cam Newton being a Patriot a few months ago. Even now, I still have some questions. How’s the footwork? Will Newton find a consistent, successful arm slot? What will the offense look like with both Newton and Jarrett Stidham running the show? I don’t know. But I’ll say this. Day by day, it gets a little bit easier to accept the fact that Cam Newton is here. Dare I say I’m starting to think positively about Newton potentially working in New England? We’ll see come training camp, preseason, and into the regular season. But for now, if Jules is happy, then I can be a bit happy too…I think?
