Buster Skrine flattens Julian Edelman with big hit (video)

Wide receiver Julian Edelman is a tough player and has absorbed many big hits during his tenure in the league, as many pass-catchers that line up in the slot often do.

Edelman caught an eight-yard pass from Tom Brady in Sunday’s game, and after watching the hit he took from Jets cornerback Buster Skrine immediately afterward, maybe he’s now wishing he didn’t.

The Patriots wide receiver caught the ball, turned and was met by Skrine. The Jets cornerback then lowered his shoulder and drilled Edelman.

Edelman did get up quickly, proving that he’s as tough as his reputation says he is.
