Robert Kraft wants Edelman and Talib back with Pats

It’s no question that two of the most important players on the New England Patriots this past season were wide receiver Julian Edelman and corner back Aqib Talib. As it turns out, Robert Kraft, the team’s owner, wants both players back with the Patriots next season.

From ESPN,

“I definitely want [Edelman] back,” the Patriots’ owner said Friday, after commissioner Roger Goodell’s annual pre-Super Bowl news conference. “He’s an outstanding young man. We hope he wants to be back. Once again it’s about two sides coming together.”


Very much,” said Kraft, when asked if he wants Talib back. “Look what happened in the game in Denver when he went out, we see the impact he can have. And no matter how many weapons you have on offense, if you can’t stop the team on the other side, it doesn’t matter.”

What do you think? Will Edelman and Talib be with the New England Patriots at the start of next season, or will they be playing elsewhere? Leave a comment below.
