Julian Edelman has defied skeptics throughout his career, rising from a seventh-round pick to a Super Bowl hero. The New England Patriots wide receiver shared a letter Tuesday from one of those former nonbelievers.
Edelman’s English 100 professor at College of San Mateo, which he attended for a year before transferring to Kent State, wrote to apologize for dismissing his former student’s NFL aspirations.

“I don’t think it fazed you, frankly, but whenever I think back on, I feel terrible,” the teacher wrote, “not because I proved you wrong, but because I stupidly voiced an uneducated opinion that implied I had distain for your passion of the game.”
What a feeling for Jules. He has that sort of Tom Brady chip on his shoulder where he spent his whole life trying to prove non believers wrong. A 6th round QB and a 7th round WR doing big things just shows you that anything is possible and scouting reports can’t dissect heart.
