Patriots, Julian Edelman Agree on Multi-Year Contract Extension

Julian Edelman makes a circus-like catch in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LI

Super Bowl LI hero and New England Patriots slot receiver Julian Edelman was entering the final year of his four-year contract with New England this upcoming season.

Wide receiver Julian Edelman will remain with the New England Patriots after both sides agreed to a contract extension.

Edelman has been among the league's leading receivers over the last few years, including 98 catches for 1,106 yards last season.

Some may say Edelman should have waited to hit free agency or demanded more money because he's likely worth more, but the reality is because he's 31 years old he was better off taking a contract extension now. He also had one of the most tremendous catches in Super Bowl history. After all, following this season he will have only made just over $20 million in total cash during his nine-year National Football League career. He caught 92 passes for 972 yards in 2014 and had 105 receptions for 1,056 yards in 2013.




Edelman was drafted by the Patriots in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft out of Kent State where he played quarterback.

He'll lead a risky receiving corps in 2017 slated to include Rob Gronkowski, Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan, Malcolm Mitchell, Dwayne Allen, Danny Amendola, and Andrew Hawkins. Edelman was slated to become a free agent after the 2017 season.

Based on productivity, Edelman has been grossly underpaid by the Patriots in his career, this might change with this projected contract extension.
