"There's been a lot of great stories after an ACL [tear], and there's about to be another one. So, I'm looking forward to it."

Oh how we miss you, Jules.

As we all know, New England Patriots wide receiver, Julian Edelman, is out for the season after acquiring an ACL tear in preseason, but it seems as though he is keeping himself busy.

The nine-year veteran just recently released his new memoir, Relentless - a book that reflects on his Pop Warner days, his time at Kent State, his relationship with this father, his admiration and respect for Tom Brady and so much more.

Relentless is co-written by Boston sportswriter Tom E. Curran, and Edelman sat down with him this week to speak about the book and how he's coping with his injury.

"The knee's feeling good. I'm on my way back."

He later continued, "It's been very tough to watch your team play without you and not go out to get to work with them. You go through the OTAs, and you go through the training camp. To have it happen in preseason, it's a good thing and a bad thing that this happened then because now I have a full year to recover. There's really no rush on anything, even though we're progressive. And I'm going to be hitting it harder than ever."
