• Shark group names great white for Patriots' Julian Edelman

    CHATHAM, Mass. (AP) - This great white shark goes long.

    A shark conservation group says it's named a shark after New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman.

    The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy said Friday it named the shark "Jules" for its wily moves. The Cape Cod-based group says it originally tagged the male in 2011, but he shook the tag.

    It said on Twitter: "Like Edelman, he dropped his coverage and his squirrelly behavior made it hard to get a new tag in him."

    Jules was retagged on Tuesday.
