News Blitz 6/25: Report: Edelman appeal heard on Monday


While most of the NFL is in a down period with very little news, it's possible that Monday could be an important day for the Patriots. NFL Network reported that wide receiver Julian Edelman will have his appeal heard on Monday, which could lead to an overturn of his four-game suspension. It appears that Edelman is prepared to mount a vigorous defense.

Speaking of Edelman, a recent Instagram video showed Tom Brady tossing some passes in his direction. looks at rookie running backs and how some might perform in their first season. While the Giants Saquon Barkley is expected to lead the group, he has plenty of company including the Patriots Sony Michel.

NBC Sports Boston says that no joint practices for the Patriots this summer takes away plenty of scouting opportunities for the team.

Tom Curran of NBC Sports Boston looks back at Brady and found evidence showing just how badly the quarterback would like to win a sixth ring. wonders if wideout Malcolm Mitchell, who missed all of last season and most of the spring with a knee injury, will be ready to go for camp next month. has the same question and asked Mitchell, who responded "we'll see."
