Julian Edelman Retires After 11 Seasons with Patriots

After 11 seasons with the Patriots, Julian Edelman is hanging up the cleats. 

The Super Bowl LIII MVP announced the news on Twitter on Monday. 

Prior to the announcement, the Patriots terminated the wide receiver's contract due to a failed physical, according to NFL Media. 

Edelman, a three-time Super Bowl champ, leaves behind an incredible legacy in New England as the Patriots' signature wide receiver over the last decade. 

Throughout his Patriots career, Edelman compiled 6,822 receiving yards and 36 touchdown catches on 620 receptions. He was named Super Bowl LIII MVP after catching 10 passes for 141 yards in the Patriots' 13-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams.
