New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman won't be prosecuted after being cited by police for misdemeanor vandalism earlier this year, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office. The owner of a car Edelman damaged informed the DA's Office he doesn't want Edelman charged, and he was fully compensated for the repairs.
Huddle Up: While this was never expected to keep Edelman off the field in 2020, he now is fully cleared to be ready whenever the 2020 NFL season starts. He heads into the 2020 NFL Draft as the Patriots' No. 1 receiver, but he'll be handcuffed by the team's shaky quarterback situation following the free-agent departure of Tom Brady.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman was rumored to be heading to the Detroit Lions on Wednesday, April 1, and those rumors were given some life when they were discussed live by national media members Bill Simmons and Colin Cowherd. But the rumors were later traced back to a Patriots fan account as part of an April Fool's Day joke.
Huddle Up: Edelman finished eighth among fantasy wideouts in terms of total PPR points last season, but with Tom Brady now gone and Edelman's 34th birthday coming up in May, his days as a PPR WR1 appear over. He remains the primary weapon for whoever the next New England QB is, but value him in as a low-end PPR WR2 at the highest.

Huddle Up: There was some recent speculation that Edelman might get traded to the Detroit Lions, but it always seemed unlikely in that New England would part with the one proven receiver on its roster. Assuming he remains a Patriot, Edelman figures to go from a high-end WR2 to a WR3 with Tom Brady no longer around.
