Tom Brady loses workout buddy to free agency

Published Add your comment

New England Patriots wide receiver, Julian Edelman will become a free agent today after contract talks between the player and team broke down.

Edelman has been working out this offseason with Tom Brady but it seems that the veteran quarterback will have to find another target to play with in 2014.'s Ian Rapoport tweeted earlier: "The #Patriots and WR Julian Edelman couldn’t finalize negotiations and reach a deal. He’ll hit the market, per source."

The Patriots now face a similar situation to last season when they lost Wes Welker to free agency after a strong year.

Edelman had 105 receptions for over 1,000 yards last season and was by far the best receiver that the Patriots could call on.

Tom Brady will now likely have to rely on Danny Amendola and Aaron Dobson as the main receiving options. The two players last year had 1,152 receiving yards combined which pales in comparison to the receiving talent that teams like the Denver Broncos can call on.

The Patriots may yet search for a top level wide receiver in free agency, Broncos' Eric Decker is available. But for the time being, Brady must continue with the frustration of being the sole offensive weapon on a perennial contender.
