Julian Edelman to star in Showtime documentary
Tom Brady made headlines for starring in a documentary last offseason, and his favorite receiver is doing the same heading into 2019.
According to Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports, a Showtime Sports documentary called “100%: Julian Edelman” is set to air on Friday, June 28 at 9 p.m. The documentary will chronicle Edelman’s path to the NFL in addition to the obstacles he has faced in recent years, which include his four-game performance-enhancing drug suspension last year and the torn ACL he came back from prior to that.
Edelman has always been one of the most interesting stories in football, as he went from being a dual-threat quarterback at Kent State to becoming the 232nd pick in the NFL Draft back in 2009. From there, the Patriots turned him into one of the best slot receivers in football. He has gone on to enjoy incredible success playing alongside Tom Brady and was named the MVP of Super Bowl LIII.
While Edelman is 33 and has battled some injuries, the Patriots recently proved that they still value him a great deal. The documentary should be an interesting one for all football fans.
