@drewbledsoe is from Ellensburg, WA.
Drew attended #washingtonstateuniversity and played 3 seasons. In 92 he was Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Year & Second-Team All-American. He had: 7,373 Pass yds, 46 TDs & 34 Ints.
Drew was picked 1st overall in the 93 #nfldraft by the #patriots . He lead the league in Att from 94 to 96, and lead in Cmp in 94 & 96. He made the #probowl and and lead the league in Pass yds, Ints in 94. He made Pro Bowl again in 96 & 97 and was Second-Team All-Pro in 96.
In 01 he suffered a sheared blood vessel in his chest when being tackled, nearly killing him. He was replaced by some 6th round pick, you might’ve heard of him. Drew would return the favor, stepping in to play during the #afc championship game and secure a win. He was the backup during the #superbowl but he got his ring (highly recommended the E60 for more details).
In 02 he was traded to the #bills where he would make the pro bowl with a 4,000+ yds season. After the 04 season, the Bills released him in favor of starting J.P. Losman, it didn’t pan out.
In 05 he signed with the #cowboys , reuniting with Bill Parcells. In 06, Drew’s playing was shaky, he was benched after 6 games in favor of the younger Tony Romo. Drew retired the following year.
His career numbers: 44,611 Pass yds, 251 TDs, 206 Ints, 385 Rush yds, 10 TDs.
Drew is the 2nd all time passing leader for the Pats and 16th league wide. He has 2 NFL records. In 2011 he was inducted into the Pats’ hof, and is still friends with Tom. I also think it’s worth noting that he was cheered in all his returns to New England after being traded.
He was an honorary captain for the team’s 2018 AFC Championship game. In 2018 Terry Rozier (then Celtic) accidentally called Eric Bledsoe, Drew. This lead to Terry wearing Drew’s jersey to games, fans doing the same & Drew coming to a game. Drew is a happily married and a father. He’s the owner of Doubleback Winery. He’s one of my favorite Patriots, and I should honestly buy his shirt from NFL shop.
