CelebnSports247.com reports that the New England Patriots played their final 10 games of 2020 without their No. 1 wide receiver.
Veteran wideout Julian Edelman, who turns 35 this year, played in just six games and underwent minor knee surgery in October that ended his campaign.
Head coach Bill Belichick was forced to lean on largely inexperienced receivers Jakobi Meyers, Damiere Byrd, and N’Keal Harry in Edelman’s absence.
He has a potential opt-out in 2021 entering the final year of his two-year, $15.5 million contract extension.
Edelman got people talking after he dropped this below tweet:
Boston I love you…You’ve weighed on my and my family’s mind for a long time! ????? #gottabelieve #????

It sounds like this is it for Edelman.
According to Spotrac, his remaining deal carries a $6.67 million cap hit in 2021 and a $2.67 million dead cap hit, meaning he and the team could part ways without a significant financial liability.
Edelman could be hinting at retirement or simply moving on to a different team.
