Wide receiver Julian Edelman has one idea for how the Patriots can fill the void left by newly retired tight end Rob Gronkowski. Ahead of the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, which begins Thursday at 8 p.m., Edelman playfully pitched Duke college basketball standout Zion Williamson on joining the Super Bowl champions in New England. “Hey [Zion],” he tweeted Wednesday afternoon, with a photoshopped image of Williamson alongside owner Robert Kraft and club president Jonathan Kraft. “We’ve got an opening at TE for ya bud. Just sayin.”

The Boston Celtics and Indiana Pacers’ Game 4 matchup aired Sunday on ABC affiliates across the country, but NBA fans in the nation’s No. 12 media market didn’t get to see the final three minutes of the first half. Instead, they were treated to “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”
