Julian Edelman was a patriot during his time in the NFL and playing all 11 seasons in New England.

With that being said, the former wide receiver star recently revealed that he almost moved on to a different team.

He missed his breaking point before the 2013 season.

His idea was sparked by Bill Belichick's decision to sign Danny Amendola to a five-year contract after letting Wes Welker walk in free agency.

Edelman wanted "the keys to the Cadillac".

And then (the Patriots sign Amendola). I won't lie, I got angry.

Edelman said he toured with the Giants and nearly signed with the New York organization.

(obnoxious) Patriot. I hate everyone here.
