Patriots ‘depending on’ Edelman
|01.05.10 at 4:42 pm ET|
FOXBORO – Patriots veteran running back Fred Taylor didn’t hide his feelings about Julian Edelman, the player who will replace the injured Wes Welker in the Patriots offense.
“We’re all confident in Julian,” Taylor said on Tuesday. “Right now, he has an opportunity to make something happen and we’re depending on him a whole lot.”
Edelman is the most likely slot receiver candidate with Welker out for the season with a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee.
Edelman finished the season tied with Kevin Faulk for third on the team in receptions with 37, 10 which came in the season finale at Houston.
Edelman served as the slot receiver in Weeks 2 and 3, filling in for the injured Welker. Edelman had eight catches for 98 yards against the Jets in a 16-9 loss and had three catches the next week against Atlanta.
