Ever since Julian Edelman was issued a four-game suspension by the NFL for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances, reports began to emerge as to how it might have happened.

Many have linked the New England Patriots wide receiver's violation due to his relationship with Alex Guerrero, the personal trainer of the team's quarterback Tom Brady.

Brady was asked about the potential link by a reporter during his press conference with the media this weekend at training camp.

It comes as no surprised that Brady was annoyed about this, as he said: "I have no comment. It is just ridiculous. I'm out. See you guys," before storming off.

Guerrero released a statement shortly after Edelman's suspension was issued. He said he doesn’t condone using performance-enhancing substances and pointed out that the wideout works with multiple trainers and coaches aside from him.

Edelman takes responsibility

Edelman has taken full responsibility for the suspension, blaming no one but himself for allowing it to happen.

He said, per Mike Reiss of ESPN: “Obviously, you’re disappointed with it, but I got to follow the protocols a little better and make sure this never happens again. I’m accountable for my actions.”

The wide receiver has expressed now his focus is on making sure his ACL injury is completely behind him once he is able to return to the field for the Patriots.

Edelman said: “Ultimately, my focus now is getting my knee right and going out and trying to play football at a high level.

"It was a helluva year to just sit and watch your team go to a Super Bowl and play without you and you’re on the couch. It was tough. But I’m excited to be out here, and I’m excited to work my game.”

The Patriots will be without their receiver now for the first quarter of the season, as he won't be able to return to action until week five against the Indianapolis Colts.
