JULIAN EDELMAN TURNS “THE PASS” INTO A FASHION STATEMENT

Posted on January 11th, by HeatherZeller in BLOG. No Comments

Julian Edelman was quick to capitalize on the New England Patriots win over the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC divisional round. In particular, the game’s most memorable play. The Patriots wide receiver and former college quarterback at Kent State, threw a touchdown pass to Danny Amendola, the first pass in his NFL career. As Edelman explained:

“We’ve had it in for 10 weeks, and the coaches finally got to call it,” Edelman said. “I had to loosen up the arm a little bit.”

Now he has translated “The Pass” into a fashion statement. Edelman’s web store already features a range of t-shirt styles, including “JE11” and “Burgertyme” themed designs. He has added “The Pass” tees to the collection. The gear is available on Edelman’s personal website and retails for $29.99.
