It took a little while, but it finally was resolved.
A year after hitting free agency and returning to New England on a one-year deal, receiver Julian Edelman has re-signed once again with the Patriots.
In addition to multiple reports of a deal, Edelman has declared on Twitter, “Foxboro is home. Excited to be back.”
The agreement comes after the Pats had pushed Edelman to accept a three-year offer before the start of free agency. He didn’t, opting instead to test the waters, drawing interest from Cleveland and San Francisco.
Edelman visited the 49ers before negotiations resumed with the Patriots. It’ll be interesting to see how the final agreement compares to the offer that was rejected four days ago.
