Video: Julian Edelman throws touchdown pass to Phillip Dorsett to give Patriots the lead vs. Eagles
It’s easy to forget nowadays, but Julian Edelman used to be a great quarterback at Kent State before Bill Belichick found a better use for him as a wide receiver of the New England Patriots.
Three Super Bowls later, the 33-year-old is considered as one of the best wide receivers in the entire league. However, he recently reminded teams every now and then that he still has the skills of a decent quarterback.
A good example of this is the touchdown pass that he threw to Phillip Dorsett II.

He ran a flat route to the right, and the Philadelphia Eagles immediately thought that he’d be rushing to the end zone as he was left all alone. However, he positioned himself and fired a laser-accurate pass that found its target without any problems. It was a beautiful pass, and his form shows that he hasn’t forgotten how to throw a football.
Edelman has only started throwing passes recently, but it looks like it’ll become one of his greatest weapons at wide receiver as he gets older.
