Edelman confident in all of Tom Brady’s potential successors

BOSTON (AP) — Julian Edelman isn’t dwelling on the departure of Tom Brady. In fact, the Patriots receiver says he was impressed with all three of Brady’s potential successors, including new arrival Cam Newton. Edelman’s been impressed with Newton’s work ethic thus far and is confident the coaching staff will be able to find a way to adjust in the post-Brady era. Now the most-tenured offensive player on New England’s roster, Edelman also says he’s ready help fill a leadership role on offense as needed.
