My 11-second interview with Julian Edelman

Matt Raymond interviews Julian EdelmanAs part of a Dunkin Donuts promotion with Julian Edelman I recently had the opportunity to sit down with the New England Patriots wide receiver and ask him anything.

The catch? I had only 11 seconds.

Naturally, I wanted to talk autographs. In this case, I asked him to tell me about the first time someone asked for his autograph and how it made him feel.

Watch the video below to see his response (and don’t forget to leave a comment for a chance in our giveaway).

    Sorry I messed up my email in the first comment I hope this doesn’t disqualify me I love minitron!!!

  • Jim Hoffman September 23, 2014, 10:35 pm

    Nice. I would’ve asked him how he feels about autograph requests through the mail.

  • James Burke September 23, 2014, 10:57 pm

    I would have asked him for his opinion if people are being too hard on Roger Goodell right now, or not hard enough. I doubt he would have answered.. but I would have at least tried. lol Thanks and great story! (As usual!)

  • Greg S September 24, 2014, 8:42 pm

    I would have asked him if he honestly ever reads his fanmail

  • Lauren F September 24, 2014, 9:32 pm

    I would have asked him if he would ever ask for someones autograph at this stage in his career- and if so who? 😀

  • tommy September 24, 2014, 10:07 pm

    I wouldve asked him how he liked being utilized as a defensive back a few years ago to as to playing wide receiver?

  • Derrick Sublett September 25, 2014, 3:56 am

    Seems nice, but kind of side stepped your question to cut down on interaction time so it seemed.

  • Richard September 25, 2014, 10:04 am

    I would ask that if he could have anyone’s autograph whose would it be?

  • Cortney Henderson September 25, 2014, 4:55 pm

    If I only had 11 seconds, there is only 1 question that comes to mind – the obvious “COULD I PLEASE HAVE YOUR AUTOGRAPH”? I would have made sure not to leave without it?

  • Linda S. September 25, 2014, 7:22 pm

    What has been your favorite moment so far in your career? That’s what I would ask.

  • Anthony D September 25, 2014, 10:08 pm

    Why the black instead of the blue? 😉

  • Kevin K September 26, 2014, 10:46 am

    I would’ve asked him what his most unusual fan experience has been and what the outcome was. Very cool of you to do this and enjoyed your question.

  • Matthew Solo September 27, 2014, 2:24 am

    Seems like a really nice guy.

    I would have asked him how often Gisele comes to practice. And a follow up, when will the next time be?

  • matt September 27, 2014, 10:31 pm

    Awesome video great Q&A!!

  • Mike Sorenson September 27, 2014, 11:12 pm

    Awesome question. I would have asked who the funniest player he ever played with. It seems like I always get interesting answers for that question. Congrats!!

  • JennieGirl September 28, 2014, 6:25 pm

    I would ask Julian, “what was his first big purchase and what did he do when he got his first Patriots pay check?”

    It’s my birthday on Oct 2nd!!! This would be awesome 😉
    GO PATS!!!!

  • jacob grossman September 29, 2014, 4:15 pm

    I would of asked him when the best time to ask him for an autograph would be. and if there are certain times that he will never sign

  • Brian September 30, 2014, 12:37 am

    I would ask “The NFL is a business. What player’s departure impacted you the most (whether trade, cut, or left in free agency)?”

  • bryan September 30, 2014, 1:25 pm

    I would ask: Who has been your favorite Patriots teammate over the years?

  • Christopher Rodriguez September 30, 2014, 3:36 pm

    I would have asked: What’s his favorite donut? But autographed related…Has he gotten any autographs from fellow NFL players or traded signed jerseys with anyone?

  • Jacob Jordan September 30, 2014, 8:40 pm

    Who is the defensive player you are most scared of?

  • Geoff September 30, 2014, 10:44 pm

    I would have asked him what his favorite piece of memorbilia he has from his career

  • Nolan October 1, 2014, 7:22 pm

    I would have asked him what his single favorite moment was as a patriot

  • roland October 1, 2014, 7:40 pm

    Whose autograph would he want from anyone in the NFL?

  • Justin October 1, 2014, 9:17 pm

    I would’ve asked him if he had his choice of any all-time great QB to by his quarterback, who he’d choose.

  • barry amerault February 5, 2015, 2:33 am

    You were acquired by the Patriots with very low expectations, too short; no specific position. Has this forged a special bond between you and the underrated Tom Brady?

  • Caleb O'Connor July 31, 2015, 6:31 am

    I would ask him if he remembers anybody that has there stuff signed by him.

  • Jonathan hibberd September 8, 2015, 6:07 am

    i would ask him what the weardest thing he has ever signed! (- -)
