FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Julian Edelman carved out a role as one of Tom Brady's most trusted receivers during the star quarterback's two decades with the Patriots.
Two games into the post-Brady era in New England, Edelman has already developed a similar chemistry with the team's newest QB.
The 34-year-old Edelman has emerged as a favorite target of 2015 NFL MVP Cam Newton through the Patriots' first two games, totaling a team-high 236 yards receiving, including a career-high 179 in last Sunday's 35-30 loss at Seattle.
