Julian Edelman shares letter from professor who doubted his National Football League dreams

Julian Edelman shares letter from professor who doubted his National Football League dreams

On Tuesday morning, Edelman shared a photo of a letter he received from a teacher at the College of San Mateo who thought the New England Patriots star was setting unrealistic goals for himself back in 2006.

Edelman reminded us of those days by tweeting a letter he received recently from a professor at the College of San Mateo, who apologized for making a "flippant comment" in the spring of 2006 about his National Football League goals.

Even the Red Sox have caught 'Game of Thrones' fever
Leone threw one pitch and gave up a double, but recorded his only out because of the play at the plate. Boston Red Sox pitcher Doug Fister will start Thursday versus the Toronto Blue Jays .

In his college playing days, Edelman was a quarterback.

What the professor later confessed, though, is what all people should consider before making that statement.

Newcastle United swoop for ex-Sunderland loan man Javier Manquillo
Manquillo previously had a loan spell with Liverpool, so he has some Premier League experience under his belt. Newcastle United are on the verge of signing former Liverpool full-back Javier Manquillo this summer.

Luckily, Julian Edelman didn't take the words to heart.

Edelman rose from his lowly draft status, and managed to start at the bottom of the Patriots' depth chart. That's why the letter is so motivational. The professor writes: "I don't think it fazed you, frankly, but whenever I think back on it, I feel awful, not because you proved me wrong, but because I stupidly voiced an uneducated opinion that implied I had disdain for your passion for the game". No one out there should allow another person's doubts stop them from achieving, even if it is from someone who should know better. In the past four seasons (2013-16), he has accumulated 356 receptions, 3,826 yards and 20 touchdowns. Join the Chowder and Champions team!
