The New England Patriots have a rule: if you get in a fight at practice, you’re kicked out of practice. That came into play on Tuesday when WR Julian Edelman and CB Stephon Gilmore got into a fight, according to the beat reporters on the scene:
Julian Edelman has been told to leave practice after starting a fight with CB Stephon Gilmore after an incomplete end-zone pass.— Mike Reiss (@MikeReiss) August 1, 2017
Julian Edelman took exception to Stephon Gilmore holding him and then wrestled with him on the ground. Gilmore has also been told to leave.— Mike Reiss (@MikeReiss) August 1, 2017
It sounds like Edelman was very angry.
