Today New England Patriots wide receiver and punt returner Julian Edelman took to Reddit to do an AMA (ask me anything). Anyone expecting Edelman to break from Patriots protocol of being very hush about team information will be sadly disappointed since most of the answers are personal and not team related. He often responded to questions in gif form to the delight and entertainment of the redditors. The full AMA can be found here, but below are some of the more interesting questions and responses.
