Julian Edelman’s Super Bowl LII story: Former Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman participated in a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) on Thursday, answering numerous questions from fans.

The question that was voted to the top pertained to cornerback Malcom Butler’s benching in Super Bowl LII in 2018 (which the Patriots lost to the Eagles, 41-33).

“Come on, can you spill the beans on why Malcom Butler didn’t play in the [Super Bowl]?” asked a Redditor.

“I don’t really know I was too busy getting kicked out of the Colts box with Guy Fieri that Super Bowl,” Edelman replied.

Though he completely dodged the original question, fans pressed Edelman for more information on what he meant.

Eventually, Edelman — who tore his ACL in preseason that year, and watched the game from the stands — complied.

“Guy had some tickets in the Colts box (oh, we’re friends nbd),” wrote Edelman. “Got settled, got my popcorn got my cracker jacks, telling old war stories to the lovely folks in the box. Then I get a tap on the shoulder. Colts management found out I was there, and let’s just say Indy isn’t known for its hospitality.”

According to Edelman, he eventually switched to another nearby seat.

“Thank god there was a Pats fan with a box next door,” he said. “Can someone please find footage of that? It was pretty crazy.”

Trivia: Julian Edelman was a remarkable success story for the Patriots, given that he was a seventh-round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. Yet despite Edelman’s achievements, he actually never made an All-Pro roster. That said, there was one player from the seventh round of that draft who did make an All-Pro appearance during his career. Name that player.

Hint: He played for the Colts from 2009-2016, the entirety of his career.
