Yesterday the 'mini-Welker' came to terms with the Patriots, and the two parties agreed on a one year deal. With this deal, WR Julian Edelman. Although he has won over the hearts of Patriots fans, it was highly unlikely for a role player like himself to get much money. According to ESPNBoston.com, Edelman's contract is for the five-year league minimum base salary of $715,000.
Although he will receive an additional $50,000 for offseason workout bonuses, there is a major team protection clause as well; there is a "split" incentive for the Patriots. What this means is that Edelman' contract will seriously be slashed if he winds up on the DL. In this case, the contract would be reduced to $383,000. Before your jaw drops, here are Edelman's production incentives as well:
Incentives30 receptions: $30,000 40 receptions: $70,000 50 receptions: $120,000 60 receptions: $180,000 70 receptions: $250,000
It is somewhat shocking that Edelman's contra...

The Patriots will resign receiver Julian Edelman today, according to a Mike Garafolo report.Fantasy Spin:Edelman has shown the ability to replicate Wes Welker-type receiving numbers on a short-term basis, but has never done it for a full season. He'll likely back up injury-prone Danny Amendola and have fantasy value only as a handcuff.
The Patriots are once again trying to prove that they are smarter than everyone else. They signed Danny Amendola and Michael Jenkins a few weeks ago.

The Patriots made some moves today by extending an offer sheet to Pittsburgh RFA Emmanuel Sanders, and resigning oft-injured but clearly talented slot receiver Julian Edelman. Should the Sanders signing stand, the moves will add depth to a position where the team had some glaring needs.
