Teammate: Edelman has met with Robert Kraft

Julian Edelman AP

Early Tuesday, Patriots receiver Julian Edelman was arrested for indecent assault and battery (which as several of you have pointed out should never be confused with decent assault and battery).  On Wednesday, Pats running back Kevin Faulk told reporters that Edelman already has met with owner Robert Kraft regarding the situation.

That’s over with now,” Faulk said, via Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald.  “We’re focusing on the Giants right now.  It happened.  The worst thing that can happen, it happened.  Now it’s over.  Keep letting everybody else talk about it.  Don’t worry about it, you got a game to play on Sunday.”

Faulk said he doesn’t know whether Edelman, shown at his arraignment, will play on Sunday.

“That’s up to coach,” Faulk said.  “Y’all probably talked to coach, probably asked him the same questions.”

They did.  And as the video below demonstrates, Bill Belichick said a whole lot of nothing, via his perpetual full-body poker face.

    Shouldn’t lawfirm be talking instead of faulk?

    I’m beginning to see some chinks in their armor. This is what happens to teams who think they can bring any player onto their roster and reshape their careers. Well how’s that Ochostinko, and Haynesworhtless pick ups going for you. Edelman should be fined, and suspended. People just don’t change, and he is a scumbag.

    cut him!

  4. broncobeta says: Nov 2, 2011 3:11 PM

    That’s pretty classy of Kraft to meet with him to hear him out. He could have just cut him and washed his hands clean.

    You think he “heard him out”?

    I think he told him what’s up.

    People are so quick to rush to judgement… He should be innocent until proven otherwise…

  7. rc33 says: Nov 2, 2011 3:45 PM

    Yes, innocent until proven otherwise.

    The Pats contended with Randy Moss’ pre-superbowl scandal at arms length. Same with Haynesworth’s scandal. I bet they do the same here.

  9. nflofficeadmin says: Nov 2, 2011 3:56 PM

    What about presumption of innocense? I bet cletusvandam would want the same if he was accused. Big money targets get accused of things everyday.

    What Would Myra Say???
    She would have had him cut… Going to be interesting to see what happens…

    He may need the services of the respected lawfirm of Benjarvis Green-Ellis

  12. rexismybff says: Nov 2, 2011 4:23 PM

    For punishment, the judge is going to sentence him to a night of drinks and dancing with Haynesworth.

  13. descendency says: Nov 2, 2011 4:43 PM

    I think everyone deserves to have their side told.

    The problem is that often the accussed don’t tell a story at all or tell something so stupid sounding that no one would believe it.

    Finally, there’s a Patriot that likes women.

    You mean like you Pats fans were advocating when Big Ben got accused in Georgia?

    Its an Edelman’s world

  17. bh83 says: Nov 2, 2011 6:16 PM

    Edelman is more open in that picture than he has been all season.

  18. yankeesjetsknicksrangers says: Nov 2, 2011 6:50 PM

    I bet he has more Grabs than Ocho this year.

    The difference between Buffalo Ben and Julian…
    Buffalo Ben had a girl locked in a bathroom with him and it was doused with bleach after. hmmm?

    Edelman allegedly grabbed a girls ass on a crowded dance floor. How convenient the “eye witness” named the only known millionaire on the dance floor.

  20. mempusa says: Nov 2, 2011 7:09 PM

    sorry, he might not even be a millionaire but being a New England Patriot in Boston, they knew exactly who he was. Maybe he did it, maybe he didn’t. I don’t know but it sounds kinda shady to me.

  21. habsman says: Nov 2, 2011 7:21 PM

    Any idea who the reporter was?

    Did his best to get under BB’s skin…didn’t work.

  22. hillzmickelzon says: Nov 2, 2011 7:25 PM

    If the Pats cut him he is on the Jets within the hour..

  23. hillzmickelzon says: Nov 2, 2011 7:29 PM

    If the Pats cut him Rex ryan will sign him and make him hate the Pats.. And who brought up OCHO we all know he is on the RADIERS next year

  24. test2402 says: Nov 2, 2011 8:31 PM

    Is the Lt. Dangle from Reno 911 part true? That would be great.

    Well, nothing like ignoring the entire case file and just making up your own lil story, is there? That’s not what happened, but why let all that evidence stand in the way of what you’ve cooked up in your tiny pea brain? FYI, no one doused the girl with bleach and there wasn’t a mark–or anything else–on her. And her story–which she changed umpteen times–was refuted by multiple witnesses. That innocent-until-proved-guilty thing … it goes for players and teams you don’t like, too. :roll:

  26. Deb says: Nov 2, 2011 11:18 PM

    The NFL Network needs to run a special just on great press conferences. I love that Belichick won’t comment on internal team matters. And he’s not an NCAA coach. These are grown men–he can’t watch them every minute.

  27. CKL says: Nov 3, 2011 5:22 AM

    Yes, test, unfortunately it is. There’s even a pic of him in costume on the local websites.

    I have a sense of humor and can appreciate a GOOD joke about my team even from a fan of a team I hate. Let’s examine:
