The report of Edelman's arrest comes a few days after news broke that Edelman needs knee and shoulder surgeries this offseason. He reportedly should be available for the start of camp in 2020.


Per TMZ, it was apparent that Edelman had been drinking, and there's a strong possibility that no charges will be filed.
