Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Patriots' picks: 7/232 -- Julian Edelman, WR, 6-0, 198, Kent State...Why not try to find lightning a bottle in the seventh round? It's unlikely Edelman is being brought in here to be the next David Givens, but the Patriots are searching for kick-return talent with Hobbs dealt on draft day. A player such as Edelman could fill the role Matthew Slater failed to fill last year or, at the very least, provide enough competition to push the more established players. Edelman also played quarterback in college for the Flashes, so it's up in the air as to how the Patriots will do. Perhaps he's just an arm to help get the wide receivers some work in camp. - by The Sports Xchange

Edelman wasn't a full participant in practice, which was conducted at half speed in the rainy conditions in Foxborough, Mass. The 30-year-old did not address reporters, but his presence in football pads confirmed earlier reports that his initial injury was not believed to be serious.
Edelman suffered a broken left foot and underwent surgery in November before returning for the playoffs. On Tuesday, the seven-year veteran threw his helmet to the ground while a team trainer examined his leg.
08/10/16 - WR Julian Edelman (foot) was back on the practice field on Aug. 10, though he did not take part in the joint workout with the Saints. A day earlier, Edelman left practice early with what was reportedly just a "scare" in his surgically-repaired left foot.
