Just how big is it for Tom Brady to get Julian Edelman back? Well Michele Steele of ESPN, posted this tweet this morning about the presence of Edelman and Gronk. Edelman averaged 76.9 yards a game this year for the Patriots when healthy. That is a huge boost for the Patriots, especially since he caught 7 touchdown passes.

Brady’s QBR w/ both Edelman & Gronk in the lineup is 78.1 — when just 1 or both have been off the field, it drops to 49.8. Both play today.
