Julian Edelman’s NFL career has certainly been unique, but the merit of its greatness is fair to question. Edelman’s resumé isn’t lacking in team accomplishments, but are his individual accolades enough to earn him a spot in Canton?
The Jarrett Stidham era is apparently underway in New England, but should it be? In the aftermath of Tom Brady’s departure, New Englanders have flocked to support the 2019 fourth round pick and dubbed him the team’s new savior. However, fans might want to pump the brakes on Stidham’s rise to stardom.
One week ago, I released a ranking of the top 10 players in Boston sports. I wanted to give Boston fans a chance to revise those rankings how they see fit. After 22 polls over 5 days, here’s the official fan voting results for the top 20 athletes in Boston sports.

Jarrett Stidham, the presently presumed starting quarterback for the New England Patriots in 2020, doesn’t come in with as low of a profile as most fourth round picks. Stidham’s journey from Baylor to Auburn in college has been well documented, as has his storied high school career.

The landscape of Boston sports looks much different than it did a year ago. Five All-Star level players have left town since last March and it’s time to reevaluate the hierarchy among players in New England. Considering all the great talent that has left, it’s remarkable how many great players remain in Boston. The number of difficult decisions and tough cuts that were present in putting this list together should give everyone hope for the future of Boston sports. Here are the 10 best current athletes in the region:
Tom Brady shocked the sports world yesterday with his announcement that he is moving on from New England and presumably signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 6-time Super Bowl Champion and 3-time MVP leaves behind an unmatched legacy in New England after a dominant 20 year run. While there is plenty of disappointment around New England, the organization has no choice but to move forward with a new plan at Quarterback.
After 20 years in New England, Tom Brady announced on Twitter that he won’t be re-signing with the Patriots. Brady has yet to agree to terms with another team.
