Patriots sign Julian Edelman to two-year contract extension


On Thursday, the reigning Super Bowl champion New England Patriots announced that they have come to terms with wide receiver Julian Edelman on a contract extension through 2019.

Given what typically takes place during free agency and teams overspending for players, the Patriots could have got themselves a good price now because with another solid season this year, Edelman likely would have received way more than $7.5 million per year offers from other teams.

Edelman, 31, was entering the final year of his contract in 2017. According to the NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, a contract could be signed within the next day or two.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski and quarterback Tom Brady are signed through the 2019 season.

Mohammed Sanusi Barkindo, has said it is too early to say when production caps should be imposed on Nigeria and Libya . The bad news is USA crude production rose to 9.34 million bpd last week, up almost 500,000 bpd from a year ago.

Edelman caught five passes for 87 yards and returned three punts for 40 yards in the Patriots' 34-28 overtime comeback win over the Falcons in Super Bowl LI. New England was approximately $20 million under the cap this offseason, and inking their most reliable receiver to a new deal allows the franchise to fit a good portion of the money it owes him under this season's total.

He entered the National Football League as a seventh-round draft choice of the Patriots in 2009, the 232nd overall selection. Danny Amendola is set to become a free agent and the Patriots also signed Andrew Hawkins to a one-year deal recently.

The notion that the Patriots might not retain Julian Edelman past the 2017 season has been percolating quite a bit in recent weeks.

He won his second Super Bowl ring as part of the greatest comeback in National Football League history - and his juggling, circus catch may be one of the most indelible images from that legendary game.
