Summary

Despite missing four games due to suspension, Julian Edelman led the team in receiving yards with 850 and was second in receiving touchdowns (6) and targets (108) to running back James White, and probably would have led the team if not for the suspension. Edelman was the only Patriots receiver to have a great Super Bowl performance, as well. It's clear that quarterback Tom Brady continues to have more faith in Edelman than almost anyone else and now that Rob Gronkowski has retired, Edelman could become even more of a security blanket. While Demaryius Thomas has been added to the roster and Phillip Dorsett should have a larger role this year, Edelman is the top dog in this offense and is poised for another great year. (May 3)
