Found April 09, 2013 on Patriots Life:
So, news came out around a week ago that New England Patriots Wide Receiver Julian Edelman visited the New York Giants. But no moves have been made since that visit, with Edelman apparently weighing up all his options. So we've got to consider where the Patriots would stand with or without Edelman. If he stays, it's another body. It's a familiar receiver for Tom Brady to throw to, and he'd probably slot right into the number 2 receiver slot on the depth chart behind Danny Amendola. And that's still a worrying picture when you take the Tight Ends out of the picture. Besides Amendola, the receivers on the roster are weak. Donald Jones and Michael Jenkins? Yikes. So based on this, we probably need him back. I expect the Patriots will go into the draft to bolster the team at WR, so this guy will probably slot in at number 2, and Edelman is a nice number 3 receiver. The number 3 receiver won't see much playing time anyway. With the receiving corps that weak, the...

Julian Edelman re-signs with the Patriots

According to Mike Garafolo of USA Today Sports, the New England Patriots have re-signed wide receiver Julian Edelman to a one-year contract. Edelman did visit with the Giants at one point, but that may have been to gain more leverage against the Pats.  The contract he signed is an incentive-laden deal, which means he’ll need to produce to earn is money.     Need NFL Tickets...

Patriots Re-Sign WR Julian Edelman

The Patriots have re-signed wide receiver Julian Edelman to a one year contract, according to a league source.  Edelman recorded 21 receptions for 235 yards and three touchdowns in nine games in 2012, and saw a significant increase in playing time at the beginning of the season with the absence of Wes Welker.  Many thought the Patriots were grooming Edelman to become the next Welker...

Julian Edelman Staying in New England

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.

Patriots Agree To One Year Deal With Julian Edelman

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. They signed Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders to an offer sheet this morning, and USA Today is reporting that they have agreed on a one year deal with Julian Edelman. Edelman, 26, played in nine games during the 2012 season...

Pats now have at least one wideout familiar to Brady

BY DAN BEGNOCHEHaving an All-Pro quarterback is one thing, but having a receiver who's actually akin to the system he's running is another thing entirely.Such is the case with New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, who signed a new one-year contract with the team Wednesday, according to Mike Garafolo of USA Today.Edelman is now the only wideout on the Pats'...

Emmanuel Sanders signs offer sheet from New England, Edelman also re-signs

ESPN is reporting that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver, Emmanuel Sanders, has signed the Patriots offer sheet on a one-year deal. That is significant, because the Steelers have one of the leagues worst cap situations and tendered Sanders as an original round value. They can either choose to match the offer to Sanders or take a third round pick from New England. With Sanders due...

Deeper look at the Emmanuel Sanders deal

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. Looking at the Sanders signing specifically, initially it was surprising to me for a number of...

Looking For Something In Returns

With Danny Woodhead going to San Diego and Julian Edelman visiting other teams, New England’s return game has an uncertain future. Yes, the Pats signed Leon Washington, but the former Seahawk is 30 years old, which typically qualifies as the running back/returner Rubicon. The good news? The 2013 draft has many special teams candidates who should remain available late on Day Three...
