After apologizing when his suspension came out, Julian Edelman issued another apology via Instagram on Sunday.

"It’s been one heck of a few months and a crazy year," he wrote. "My deepest apologies to my family, friends, peers, coaches and fans. What I can say, and what I am most thankful for, is the overwhelming support I have received from everyone. The love and support has truly helped me through what has been a challenging time. Whether it’s a person walking down Newbury street, or someone next to me filling up their gas tank saying they have my back. I can’t thank Pat’s Nation enough. It inspires me to go out and work that much harder for you guys. Remember, tough times don’t last, tough people do."

Edelman will miss the first four games of the season after testing positive for a banned substance.
