Patriots WR Julian Edelman on what he wanted in a new contract: “A little security on how many years I’ll be here, I’ve never really been in that situation. I’ve always felt like if I had a bad practice, I could potentially get cut the next day, like stuff like that. Ultimately it’s good to be back with this franchise, and it’s a surreal moment.”

    I am really glad Mark Murphy is happy with the offseason. Of course they accomplished nothing but add a declining DE to their stable of DE busts, and resigning the boat anchors on the 31st ranked defense.
    Yep, the best talent evaluator went to Seattle. But the good thing is that the Packers won’t have to issue more “owners stock” to sign players..

    That Edelman is so naive, thinking a long term contract equals job security… Especially in NE.
