Julian Edelman signs extension with New England Patriots

After another incredible season capped off with the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history, Julian Edelman was rewarded by the Patriots with a new multiyear contract extension.

After celebrating his 31st birthday late last month, Edelman is no under contract through his age-33 season.

With starting quarterback Tom Brady getting up their in age, getting the ball out quickly is immensely important for the Patriots passing game.

Edelman also holds the Patriots record for most punt returns for a touchdown, with four. According to the NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, a contract could be signed within the next day or two. Edelman was slated to become a free agent after the 2017 season. It's likely he would then be on one-year deals worth not a lot of money the rest of his career.

Via Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com, the two-year extension has a value of $11 million with $7 million fully guaranteed. Edelman is assured of a spot in the Patriots 53-man roster while Amendola and Hawkins are expected to battle for the last berth. Not only was the regular season fruitful for Edelman, but the post season was where he made his money.

As has been the case with many recent Patriots deals, it appears to be a win-win for both sides.
