If Tom Brady was the Super Bowl XLIX MVP, then Julian Edelman was the Super Bowl Parade MVP.
The wide receiver had nine catches for 109 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win, and he didn't skimp on the celebration during the Patriots' duck boat tour of Boston on Wednesday.
Edelman started the parade wearing a blue cardigan but promptly removed the sweater with his signature touchdown celebration.

Later Edelman was handed a blown-up photo of Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. Edelman quickly disposed of that as well:
Edelman somehow managed to get a hold of a poster of Trent Dilfer, the former quarterback and current ESPN commentator who wrote the Patriots off after their week 4 blowout loss at Kansas City. The poster never stood a chance:
After Sunday's win Edelman called Dilfer's comments "embarrassing," and Dilfer even agreed with him.

It's been a wild week for Edelman, who was at Disney World on Monday and back in Boston the next day for a host of celebrations. He may have had a little too much fun, actually, and he was the subject of this unflattering Tinder conquest story.
Edelman had a spectacular postseason, leading all players with 281 receiving yards and even tossing a touchdown pass in the Patriots' AFC divisional-round victory over the Baltimore Ravens.
The 28-year-old won over Patriots fans with his gritty play. After an especially painful hit during the Super Bowl Edelman was heard saying, "I love getting hit!"
