New England Patriots wide receiver and punt returner Julian Edelman held an Ask Me Anything (AMA) on Reddit this afternoon. If you aren't familiar with what an AMA is, a celebrity can provide a "proof picture" and allow commenters to ask any question they want. Of course, not all questions have to be responded to, but Edelman followed through with some laughs. If you'd like to read the entire conversation, click here for a link, but here are some of the highlights:
