By now you have heard the news that Julian Edelman, wide receiver for our New England Patriots, is hanging up his helmet after 11 years on the team. In case you missed it, here's the full video announcement:

Over the years, my friends and I have become massive Edelman fans, both on and off the field. I know a lot of people are reliving some of his best plays and pinnacle moments of his football career but let's leave that to the sports journalists, shall we? In honor of number 11, I thought I could run through some of my favorite, non football related, Edelman moments. Let's take a stroll down memory lane, shall we?

Who could forget Edelman's brilliant YouTube video series called Burgertyme?

And the equally as entertaining sequel, SmoothieTyme!

What about the time he got into trouble hanging out with Paul Piece and Danny Amendola?

(Yup, that's the night he jumped on a car. WHAT A PARTY ANIMAL!)

Remember this tender father/daughter moment? The wide receiver even quoted the movie "Frozen" in the caption!

The time he proudly displayed his Judaism for all the world to see

Sing that blessing, boy!

The time he featured on an episode of "The Simpsons"

That's how you know you've made it!

The time he introduced us to Julian Skywalker:

The time he begged Tom Brady to come back to the Patriots by reenacting this moment from "Say Anything".

The time he had One Nibble of pizza with Guy Fieri

That time he posted the pic and should have captioned it "I'm not a business man. I'm a business, man"

Needless to say, we're going to miss number 11 very much. Not only is he a stellar athlete, he is also a genuinely hilarious human and a hard working dude. Best of luck in your retirement, Julian! Unless, your plan is to pull a Gronkowski and come out of retirement to join Tom Brady in Tampa Bay. I don't think we Patriots fans would be able to handle that.
