New England Patriots Re-Sign Julian Edelman to One-Year Deal

The New England Patriots have re-signed free agent wide receiver Julian Edelman.

The decision to re-sign Edelman came just hours after former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders signed an offer sheet with the Patriots. The Steelers have until Monday to match Sanders’ deal.

Edelman visited the New York Giants last week, but that now appears as if the wide receiver was simply testing the market. Edelman agreed to a one-year, incentive-laden deal with the Patriots.

Edelman has spent the past four seasons with the Patriots. In 2012, Edelman played in nine games, catching 21 balls for 235 receiving yards. Edelman was targeted by quarterback Tom Brady 32 times and caught three touchdown passes on the season.

Edelman’s decision to re-sign with New England does give the Patriots some added depth at the wide receiver position. His decision to remain with the team comes as part of an off-season in which New England lost star wide receiver Wes Welker to the Denver Broncos, but signed from St. Louis Rams target Danny Amendola as a replacement. In addition to the aforementioned players, the Patriots receiving core also features Donald Jones and Michael Jenkins. New England made the decision to release Brandon Lloyd last month.

Edelman was a seventh round selection back in 2009 and has caught 69 passes for 714 total yards in his four year NFL career.
