Published 06/16/2022, 12:23 AM EDT

Tom Brady and Julian Edelman had a great partnership for the New England Patriots and won three Super Bowls together. Apart from their on-field partnership, the duo is very close friends away from football. Hence, the former player, who was expectedly questioned about an NFL return, did not shut the door on a return to Tom Brady’s offensive line.

At the Sunset Sports Media Festival in Zadar, Croatia, Julian Edelman once again created excitement among NFL fans as he hinted at a potential NFL return.

He further went on to talk about which team he would prefer to play with if he returns. Edelman said, “That’s called a little teaser. We’ll see. We’re staying in shape but you never know. But I’d probably go back to the Patriots. I love the Patriots. Foxborough Forever.”

Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will certainly welcome a quality wide receiver. The experience of a player like Julian Edelman can help them. After they lost Antonio Brown last season, they haven’t been able to replace him with someone else.

If Rob Gronkowski also returns to the team to play alongside Brady and Edelman, then that will be a massive reunion as the legendary AFC trio will combine to thrill the NFC.
