Julian Edelman And Nick Wright Exchange Low Blows On Twitter After Wright Undermined Edelman’s Value
If I were a betting man, I would wager that Julian Edelman was six-to-twelve quarantinis deep at 3 am Saturday night before logging on to Twitter to respond to a week old clip from FS1’s Nick Wright.
Add a solid buzz with the fact that Edelman still has to be mourning the departure of his bestie, and you got yourself a recipe for a totally-avoidable online feud.
Last week, Wright grew enraged over the possibility of the Patriots swindling Tua Tagovailoa from the Lions for what he believes is peanuts. One of those peanuts was “Julian bleeping Edelman,” one of the most productive receivers in postseason history.
“If [Lions general manager] Bob Quinn and [coach] Matt Patricia gift Tua Tagovailoa to the New England Patriots and Bill Belichick for the 23rd pick, a third-round pick and Julian bleeping Edelman, I’m out,” Wright said on the show. “I don’t know if I’ll be able to watch this sport again because I can’t deal with the idea of it.”
Julian did not like this.
In a since-deleted tweet, the three-time Super Bowl champion fired back, “Nice hairline, bro.” This insult never fails to make even the most confident man insecure.
Mr. Wright cranked up the dial even more.
Wright is referring to Edelman allegedly jumping on the hood of a parked Mercedes-Benz, causing damage, just one week after the New England Patriots’ season-ending playoff loss to the Titans. Edelman escaped charges, as “the owner of the vehicle has informed the DA’s Office that he does not want the arrestee to be prosecuted for the proposed vandalism charge.”
Edelman may break the Massachusetts social distancing mandate to beat Wright’s ass.
