The Patriots are a -6.5 or -7 favorite hosting the Houston Texans in Week 1.

If he were suspended for four games, Edelman would forfeit $470,588.20 in base salary.

Edelman is returning from an ACL tear during the 2017 preseason that forced him to miss the entire season.

The wide receiver isn't a position at which the Patriots are loaded with experienced, quality depth and this could make them especially vulnerable during the games Edelman would be out should he fail to win his appeal.

After losing Danny Amendola and Brandin Cooks this offseason, the Patriots' receiving corps consists of Jordan Matthews, Cordarrelle Patterson, Chris Hogan, Malcolm Mitchell, Kenny Britt, Phillip Dorsett and sixth-round draft pick Braxton Berrios.
