This is your life Julian Edelman.

The star Patriots wide receiver will get his own biography treatment in a new documentary coming from Showtime Sports later this month, sources tell Front Office Sports.

The new doc, called “100%: Julian Edelman“, is expected to chronicle the 33-year old star’s career from undersized former junior college quarterback to one of the most clutch receivers in NFL history. Along the way, viewers will learn about his comeback from a devastating knee injury and drug suspension to becoming Super Bowl LIII MVP. 

The new doc is scheduled to premiere Friday, June 28 at 9 pm ET, said sources. Showtime declined to comment, but the documentary is expected to be announced later today.

With tight end Ron Gronkowski vowing to stay retired, Edelman is emerging as the most charismatic Patriots star outside of his close friend Tom Brady. 

He recently signed a two-year, $18 million contract extension that will keep him with the Patriots through the 2021 season.
