Julian Edelman: Patriots working on re-signing Tom Brady's leading receiver

The New England Patriots have made a splash the first couple of days of free agency by beefing up their defensive secondary. With the signings of Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner, the Patriots are now turning their attention to the offensive side of the ball. What better place to start than with one of their own. According to on March 15, the team is trying to work out a deal for receiver Julian Edelman.

Edelman, coming off of his best season by far, declined an initial offer put on the table by the team to explore free agency. The five-year veteran has received a lot of interest from teams such as the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens, New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers, but the one place that makes the most sense for Edelman is New England.

That doesn't lock the Patriots in as the favorite because it comes down to money and what Edelman's camp feels he is worth. Last season, Edelman had 105 catches for 1,056 yards and six touchdowns. It is his versatility as a kickoff returner and his ability to even play defense that has the most value for the Patriots. He also gives Tom Brady a reliable target in an offense that can be explosive when healthy. With so many "ifs" surrounding Brady's weapons, it would be nice to have Julian Edelman to rely on.
