Welcome back Julian! Today, New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman announced that he is returning to Foxboro this season as a member of the Pats. Last season, Edelman proved to be quarterback Tom Brady‘s favorite target in the absence of Rob Gronkowski, so bringing him back was essential to the Pats offense for the upcoming season.
Even with the re-signing of Edelman, the Patriots are going to need more help at the WR position. Look for them to be linked to several names over the coming week. I would be surprised to see them draft at the position before the third round, so one or two free agents will most likely fill-in the rest of the receiving corps. They have already bolstered their secondary so far this offseason, so let’s see them upgrade the other side of the ball now.
Edelman agreed to a re-sign with the Pats early Saturday, and terms have yet to be disclosed.
