WR Edelman on NFL Network Monday

There will be a Patriots flavor to some upcoming programming on NFL Network, as receiver Julian Edelman is scheduled to be an in-studio guest on NFL Total Access on Monday, May 30. The show begins at 7 p.m. ET.

Edelman's profile is rising as he enters his third NFL season.

He is coming off a 2010 season in which he carved out a niche as a top punt returner, with 21 returns for 321 yards (15.3 avg.). One of those returns was taken back 94 yards for a touchdown.

As a receiver, Edelman was mostly fourth on the depth chart, totaling seven receptions for 86 yards while working primarily behind Wes Welker. He was on the field for 174 of 1,012 snaps (including penalties) and one storyline to watch in 2011 will be if those numbers grow.

In recent months, Edelman has been connecting with fans on Twitter -- @Edelman11.
