Thinking of 49ers, Patriots’ Julian Edelman has ‘Jerry Rice Hill’ to thank

When Julian Edelman faces his hometown team Sunday, he’ll have a chance to show off for the old neighborhood. One resident in particular. Hall of Famer Jerry Rice — “Mr. Rice,” to Edelman — lived near Edelman’s Redwood City home. And Edelman dated Rice’s daughter, Jaqui, while both were at Woodside High School. He took her to the prom.
