By MyFM's Jake Archer - Well, so much for the thought that the Patriots were looking for Julian Edelman’s replacement. Edelman and the Pats had another season together, but decided they wanted to add on two more as they came to terms on a two-year contract extension worth $11 million. For both sides, I love this deal and as a fan I could not be happier.
Edelman is a key piece of this team, a fan favorite and all he wants to do is be a Patriot. He took less money than he could’ve gotten on the open market and that’s what happens when you’re in a great situation. Edelman knows what he has here in New England and the Patriots know what they have in Edelman. It’s great to see this get done and it was honestly unexpected. With the way the Patriots cut ties with players, I was ready to admit Jules would be gone sooner rather than later. I’m glad I was wrong on that front.
