Minitron is back. The New England Patriots and wide receiver Julian Edelman have agreed to terms on a new contract. Edelman led the team with 105 receptions and also had career highs with 1,056 yards and six touchdowns. The Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns also had interest in Edelman before the signings of Steve Smith and Andrew Hawkins.
In addition to multiple reports of a deal, Edelman has declared on Twitter, “Foxboro is home. Excited to be back.”
The agreement comes after the Pats had pushed Edelman to accept a three-year offer before the start of free agency. He didn’t, opting instead to test the waters, drawing interest from Cleveland and San Francisco.
Edelman visited the 49ers before negotiations resumed with the Patriots. It’ll be interesting to see how the final agreement compares to the offer that was rejected four days ago.
