Julian Edelman on GHS addresses dropped passes, including one that led to pick-6 vs. Chiefs


A recent trend with Julian Edelman has been his dropped passes.

Since the start of last season, the wide out has 11 drops when no other player has more than eight in that span.

Appearing on The Greg Hill Show Friday morning, Edelman was asked about one of his drops against Kansas City that turned into a pick-6 for Jarrett Stidham.

“I think you have to be onto the next week," he said. "That is not the first time I dropped a ball, probably won’t be the last. It’s football. That is how it goes. Sometimes you’re going to be hot, sometimes you’re not. … It’s something you have to fix. That is what we’re doing in practice. That is what I am trying to do all the time. Your job as a receiver is to get open and catch the ball.

"Let my team down a little bit last week and I am looking forward this week to go out and try and help them.”

Edelman has shown some signs of being a 34-year-old receiver this year, as his snap counts have been lowered, which could be a sign of the team trying to preserve him for later in the season.

In four games he has 18 catches for 294 yards, but 179 of those yards came against the Seahawks.

The Patriots will host the Broncos this Sunday.
