-- 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. 

“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.” 

Edelman also said he and Belichick engaged in small talk before leaving the stadium and they have clearly gotten past the situation. 

-- David Ortiz announced via emoji in a  tweet on Monday he will rejoin MLB on Fox for postseason coverage this fall, just months after he was shot in the Dominican Republic.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I think for me, just the stability of that position – we never waver if there's a kick on the line, kickoffs, playing against tough returners. Sometimes the best thing to stop a tough returner is Steve kicking a ball out of the end zone.” -- Devin McCourty, on Stephen Gostkowski
