Now former #Patriots WR Julian Edelman has been working to get his knee right. The odds were long, but that was his goal and hope. He has a decision to make on his future, which I imagine will come soon. https://t.co/4WwFrgnoKC

Edelman, 34, was trying to recover from a knee injury that cut his 2020 season short, but was unable to do so. It is now not clear whether Edelman will be able to play in the NFL again.
Without Edelman, the Patriots will be looking to get more offensive help for Cam Newton and a possible rookie quarterback added to the roster in the 2021 NFL Draft.
The Kent State product spent 11 seasons with the Patriots and won three Super Bowls. He was named MVP of Super Bowl LIII.
