Since Julian Edelman retired after the 2020 season, the former Patriots wide receiver has engulfed himself in several projects and various career endeavors, including working as an analyst on "Inside The NFL" on Paramount+.

To continue that path, Fox Sports announced on Thursday afternoon that Edelman would be joining the network as a member of their NFL Kickoff team for the upcoming season. He is set to join host Charissa Thompson, insider Peter Schrager, and other NFL legends in Charles Woodson and Michael Vick.

"Joining FOX Sports is a dream come true. I grew up watching the NFL on FOX on Sundays, and now being an analyst for FOX NFL KICKOFF feels full circle. Twelve years in this league has given me insight and opinions that I’m eager to share alongside the talented FOX NFL cast and crew."

It is an ample opportunity for the Super Bowl 53 MVP and should excite Patriots fans to see another one of their favorite players back in the studio covering the game. But it also brought up another potential scenario for the 2024-2025 season.

Remember how Tom Brady was also signed by Fox Sports?

Although he pushed back his start date from this season to next year, Brady is reportedly joining the Fox Sports team as a commentator. This means that (technically) Brady and Edelman will be teammates again, raising the question, "Will we see the pair reunite, just off the field this time?"

It's certainly possible. The announcement only reported that Edelman was added for the 2023 season, leaving next year yet to be determined. And there has been no indication of a reunion between the quarterback and the receiver in the works, although they should definitely capitalize on that.

Considering the sheer amount of fans wondering about this exact scenario, it wouldn't be at all surprising to see Fox address it sooner rather than later.
