Does Julian Edelman know something we don't know?
During Saturday's UNC vs. Syracuse game, the Patriots wide receiver sat courtside with his teammate Tom Brady and comedian Jimmy Fallon. ESPN cameras panned to the trio several times throughout the game; but there was one particular shot that had fueled speculation about Brady's future with New England.
The clip shows Edelman seemingly mouthing, "He's coming back. He's coming back." Brady then looks over to Edelman with a clenched-teeth smile, leaving viewers to believe the six-time Super Bowl champ wasn't pleased with Edelman's words.
Check out the moment below.
Brady has spent his entire NFL career with New England since he was picked from the 2000 NFL Draft. The 42-year-old is poised to enter free agency for the first time ever on March 17, when his contract with the Patriots expires. Naturally, there have been many rumors and theories about what the future holds for Brady: Will he stay with New England, or head to another franchise? Recent reports have suggested the latter.
Among the teams who are reportedly interested in Brady are the Los Angeles Chargers, Denver Broncos, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tennessee Titans, and Las Vegas Raiders. Sports writer Larry Fitzgerald Sr., reports the latter team is ready to offer Brady a two-year, $60 million contract.
