There’s no doubt that New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman takes his fair share of punishment.

The 5-10′ Edleman often goes across the middle with reckless abandon, many times being on the wrong end of a devastating hit. Despite that, the Kent State product continues to tick and dishes out his own share of punishment, though, with his legs like he did during the Patriots’ game against the New York Jets on Sunday afternoon.

After the Jets had been stiffed by the Patriots’ defense, they opted to punt in the second quarter where Edelman awaited the boot.

The California native grabbed the kick at the 34-yard line, give or take and promptly began busting out video game moves, juking defenders left and right en route to a 38-yard return. Seriously, I saw about six members of the New York Jets special teams get faked out at some point during the return.

Unfortunately for Edelman, he ran out of real estate and couldn’t take it to the house, but that didn’t change the impressive return.
