Julian Edelman, Patriots reportedly agree on multiyear contract extension

The notion that the Patriots might not retain Julian Edelman past the 2017 season has been percolating quite a bit in recent weeks. But after a report from NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo on Thursday saying the two sides were getting close on a deal, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports a deal on a multiyear contract extension has been struck.

Monetary details of the reported two-year extension have yet to be reported.

The Patriots were obviously in no way uninterested in Edelman long term, but it just felt like given his particular skill set and the roster construction in New England there was a possibility he might not be around. It was a legit concern in Boston: I did a spot with “Toucher Rich” on CBS Sports Radio affiliate 98.5 The Sports Hub and they inquired about his long-term viability with the Pats. Plenty of outlets close to the Patriots had been asking similar questions over the past few months. 

The depth chart in New England is so deep right now that “How many games would the backups win?”
