Julian Edelman nominated for 2022 Sports Emmy Award


Julian Edelman may be done playing football, but he still has a chance to rack up the accolades in his post-NFL career.

The former New England Patriots wide receiver, now an analyst for Inside the NFL on Paramount+, has been nominated for a 2022 Sports Emmy Award. He joins Malika Andrews (ESPN), Eli Manning (ESPN), and Greg Olsen (FOX Sports) on the list of nominees for Outstanding Personality/Emerging On-Air Talent.

Curran: How will the Patriots respond to the NFL's WR arms race?

Edelman has fit right in as an NFL analyst, consistently sharing his hot takes on the air as well as on social media. He also provides valuable insight as a former player with 12 years of experience in the league. As much as he likes to tease a reunion with Tom Brady, the three-time Super Bowl champion seems to have found his comfort zone in retirement.

The Sports Emmy Awards are set to take place on May 24.
