Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston writes that New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels believes that wide receiver Julian Edelman has “earned the right to get out there and play”.
“He made quite a few plays the other day in the game and really helped us, and came up big, in a couple of those two-minute situations there,” McDaniels said. “He’s a guy that gives you everything he’s got on every play. He’s got speed and has caught the ball well for us so far this year. He’s a returner and gives you an element of run-after-catch that I’d say is something he does fairly well.”
Edelman played 75 of the 82 offensive snaps on Sunday in New England’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals, and caught 5 passes for 50 yards.
