Tom Brady or Jimmy Garoppolo? Julian Edelman says neither

There’s no denying that Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo are both quite handsome, but Julian Edelman said he prefers the look of a different Patriot when asked to pick between the two quarterbacks.

During an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show, host Dan Patrick asked the injured wide receiver, “Serious question. Try to be objective if you can. Who’s more handsome: Garoppolo or Brady?”

“I’ve had this conversation before,” Edelman said, after a deep sigh. “Jimmy’s like the young stallion, like hot kind of guy. Brady’s like the old-man-sipping-on-a-whiskey-with-a-nice-suit-on handsome. So I mean it’s a tossup.”


While he’s pretty evenly split between the pair of passers, the 31-year-old revealed that he thinks one of his fellow wide receivers is most attractive.

“I’m more of a Dola guy,” Edelman said, with a smile. “I think Amendola is better looking than both.”

Other topics Patrick and Edelman discussed included his new book, Relentless; the Garoppolo trade, and the recovery process from his ACL tear.

Regarding the trade, Edelman said that he wasn’t shocked by the news simply because “nothing surprises [him] anymore.” He does have high hopes for his former teammate in San Francisco, however.

“The kid has opportunity to be good. For sure,” Edelman said. “He showed it in the games that he’s played. He’s got that kind of calm, cool gun-slinger mentality in there. It’s going to be fun to watch his progression.”
