Julian Edelman inks multi-year deal

Edelman reportedly received that new deal on Thursday, but perhaps it wasn't worth as much as some would have thought.

Edelman is set to make just $3 million in base salary in 2017, which is an incredible value for the type of production he puts out.

Edelman, 31, recorded 98 receptions for 1,103 yards and three touchdowns during the 2016 regular season. According to multiple reports, the Edelman has agreed to terms on a multi-year deal to keep him in New England beyond 2017.

NFL Network had earlier reported that Edelman and the Patriots were close to agreement on an extension.

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

Social Media Rushes To Define Trump's 'Covfefe' Tweet
No word from Merriam-Webster on whether they'll add it to the dictionary next year. "New York's hottest nightclub is #Covfefe ". When asked in the past about other Trump tweets, White House spokesman Sean Spicer has said the posts speak for themselves.

Earlier, Edelman said the Patriots' the new receiving unit is expected to improve as the days go by, making the team more risky offensively.

Julian Edelman was scheduled to be a free agent after this season, but it appears that won't be the case.

A seventh-round pick by New England in 2009, Edelman has played his entire National Football League career with the Patriots. The Patriots are looking to get that situation all taken care of before Edelman can even sniff free agency.

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.
