A deleted scene from the "100% Julian Edelman" documentary was released on Wednesday and it absolutely should have been included in the full-length feature.
In this footage, Edelman tells the story of the time he walked in on Bill Belichick getting out of the Patriots’ hot tub naked during his rookie year in 2009.
“I just so happen to walk by the hot tub, and coach is in the hot tub. Like, obviously I came in the room to go in the hot tub. But then we made eye contact, and my natural instinct was to turn around like I was going to leave,” Edelman said. “But then I saw that he saw that I was in there, and then he got up and got out. And real, real big party foul by coach. I mean, we're supposed to have shorts on. We're supposed to have shorts. But I guess at 11 o'clock when you're the GOAT of coaching, you go wherever you want, free ball. So I had to hide my absolute face of terror after seeing what I saw and sit in the hot tub.”
Despite the shock and horror of what the Patriots wide receiver just saw, he still hopped in the hot tub any way, but it was still a bit unsettling.
"So, I sit in the hot tub, I'm already extremely uncomfortable, I don't know what to think," he said. "I didn't know that people went into hot tubs without swim trunks at a public facility. I accepted it ... it's coach."
Edelman also said he and Belichick engaged in small talk before leaving the stadium and they have clearly gotten past the situation.
