Listed at 5’10” in height and weighing around 200 pounds, he is smaller than most NFL wide receivers.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady gave Julian Edelman his nickname ‘Minitron’ during his breakout season in 2013. ‘Minitron’ was supposed to be a complimentary comparison to Calvin Johnson who is known as ‘Megatron’, but just a smaller version. However, Edelman does not like the nickname, but unfortunately for him the moniker has stuck.
