Thursday afternoon, it was announced that New England Patriots star wideout Julian Edelman had been hit with a four-game suspension for PEDs. A short time after, it was revealed that a Reddit user actually broke the news on Wednesday - long before any reporters had gotten word.

The user, who goes by Redditlover1981, clearly got some kind of tip before the rest of us. It looks like he may have again, too.

Friday, the user took to Reddit to tease another story. He says that a "major" story involving the New England Patriots is going to break soon. He says that he's going to break it tonight if it isn't out there by then.

He also asked for fans to guess the news. Reddit eventually removed his post.

“I’ve actually been sitting on for the past few days, still trying to verify that it’s 100% true before putting it out there,” said Redditlover1981. “Regardless I plan to post it here tomorrow evening.”

The user also said it involves a player who has been with the team for a number of years.

As you'd imagine, the Patriots rumors are flying on social media. But so far, no official reports involving any players have leaked. As always, this could be nothing - but given the fact that the user was right earlier this week, it can't completely be dismissed.
