Edelman began his partnership with Joe’s Jeans in 2017 and worked with the company to create the Julian Edelman X line of apparel. 

-- Johnny Manziel has been cut from his CFL team and banned from all other teams in the league after he "contravened the agreement which made him eligible to play.”

The Montreal Alouettes released the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner on Wednesday and the CFL informed the league’s other eight teams Manziel is barred from signing with one of them.

"We advised Montreal that Johnny had violated one of the conditions we had set for him to be in our league. And Montreal announced his release today," CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie said. "We didn't release the terms of those conditions then and we're not going to do that now. We're trying to do what we believe is in the best interests of the entire league. The conditions we set, we thought were the right ones. Those conditions have been violated and we feel it's best, and Montreal feels its best, to let Johnny move on. And we think it's best for our league that he do the same. And we wish him well.''

Alouettes general manager Kavis Reed said in a statement Manziel was an asset to the team but violated the terms of his contract.

"We are disappointed by this turn of events. Johnny was provided a great deal of support by our organization, in collaboration with the CFL, but he has been unable to abide by the terms of his agreement," the statement said. "We worked with the league and presented alternatives to Johnny, who was unwilling to proceed."

Manziel thanked his team and the CFL in a tweet and said he is “exploring new options.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I would love it. I would love it. That organization, they have proven to be champions year-in and year-out. They work hard for sure, but you know where you’re going to be at the end of the season: you’re going to be not only looking at the playoffs, but you’re looking at maybe a first-round bye with this team. You gotta admire that organization, they do things right, they’ve been doing it for a long, long, long time.” -- Golden Tate, on if he would want to play for the Patriots
