Julian Edelman is going to try and gut out another season with a chronically troubled knee.

As a competitor, and one of the toughest players you’ll ever find, that shouldn’t come as a surprise. Edelman doesn’t want to retire without a fight, and another run at a championship.

The question in the coming months is what the Patriots will ultimately choose to do with him, after adding two potential starters in free agency and perhaps another soon via the draft.
