Julian Edelman Relieved To No Longer Live In Fear Of Getting Cut
" BOSTON (CBS) — Life in the NFL is tough, and nobody knows that better than Julian Edelman.

Drafted in the seventh round of the 2009 draft, Edelman has already experienced more in his five years in the league than most players do in their entire careers. He’s converted from quarterback to wide receiver, he’s suffered injuries, he’s dealt with off-the-field accusations, he’s filled in on defense, he’s finished in the top five in the NFL in receptions, and he’s played in a Super Bowl, among other things.

But the one thing Edelman never had in those five years is long-term stability, and that’s something he has in his new contract with the New England Patriots.

“It’s good to have a little security and knowing that a team believes in you enough to pay you that kind of stuff, a little security on how many years I’ll be here,” Edelman said Thursday. “I’ve never really been in that situation.
