Julian Edelman talks Darrelle Revis, Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady with NFL Network

06.25.14 at 10:08 am ET

Julian Edelman appeared on NFL Network’s “Total Access” Monday night, and talked about a wide variety of topics, including Darrelle Revis, Rob Gronkowski, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. Here are a few quick highlights:

On Revis:

“Darrelle is one of the best corners in the NFL and he showed that in camp. He did very well. He’€™s a very instinctive player. He’€™s great in the locker room, I like competing against him every day, and it’€™s good to have a player like that.’€

On Gronkowski possibly playing in Week 1:

“Well, I’€™m not a doctor or trainer or anything. I see Gronk in the locker room, he’€™s working hard, doing what he’€™s trying to do. But when Gronk’€™s on the field, he’€™s probably one of the best tight ends in the NFL. It’€™s always great to have him out there and hopefully he will be.”

On Brady wanting to play until he’s 40:

“It wouldn’€™t surprise me. Knowing him the way I know him, I am sure he’€™s just focused on this year. You’€™re going to have to ask him that. The guy is in here, working hard, preparing to the fullest ability, taking care of his body. So you know that he’€™ll definitely have a shot to do it.”

On whether Belichick has watched his “Burgertyme” and “Smoothie Tyme” videos:

“You know, I’€™m sure he did. Because they kind came off his original, I think it was called the Bill PB&J [show] with the two pieces of bread in between with double layers of peanut butter. So I think we actually stole the concept from Bill Belichick.”

On what he remembers from the Patriots’ Week 12 win over the Broncos after being down 24-0 at the half:

“I remember we won. That was a good memory. That we won that one. No, but seriously — at halftime, we couldn’€™t have done anything worse than what we were putting on the field in the first half. We kind of just took it as, ‘We can’€™t get any worse than what we did so let’€™s go out there and just play each series the way we have to and just try to string a couple of consistent drives up,’ and we were able to do that. We played complimentary football in the second half, and came out with the win.”
