Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman is jacked—as if that's news to anyone—and he’s been rocking a crop top and short shorts at practice to prove it yet again. In a new series of Instagram photos, Edelman gave a peek at his pre-season training for the Patriots, which included a close-up look at his shredded abs, defined quads, and bulging arms for good measure.
In his latest photo, Edelman sports a gray crop top, seafoam-hued shorts and white Nikes in the photo series, which shows him grinding hard through his practice workout. If you ever had doubts about rocking a crop top during your own workout, consider this your official permission to just go for it—especially if you've been putting in this level of work. Edelman captioned the post with the cheeky phrase, “punches clock.”
In one picture in the photo set, Edelman poses with new Patriots quarterback Cam Newton and fellow Patriots wide receivers. One of those players, Patriots wide receiver Gunner Olszewski, commented on the photo set to relentlessly tease Edelman. “Bro, you cut up like a Christmas ham,” Olszewski wrote. “How old are you?”
For those wondering, Edelman turned 34 in May. He’s been playing with the Patriots for his entire NFL career, and was first drafted in 2009.

Though Edelman is currently training for the season ahead, all practices so far are somewhat unofficial. According to Yahoo Sports, Patriots players can't report to official training at Gillette Stadium until they pass three COVID-19 tests in a span of four days. Those three consecutive tests begin on Aug. 4. Full-contact practices are expected to begin on Aug. 17—and will hopefully include all players after passing their COVID-19 testing.
