Free agency has officially kicked off, and as expected, all is quiet on the Patriots front. They did offer a three year contract to Julian Edelman earlier in the day, but he rejected it, and has now hit the open market.
According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens may be a potential landing spot for Edelman. I think it would be a nice fit for Baltimore, although Pats fans may not be too happy with Edelman playing for them.

There has been no official word on Edelman, but I would be surprised if he ended up in New England. He wanted to test the market, and more often than not, Bill Belichick will move on.
With that said, Albert Breer of NFL.com did report that there is a possibility that Edelman returns, as they will let the market dictate how everything falls into place.
Edelman hasn’t ruled out a return to the Patriots. But again, the market will determine how feasible that is. Sides plan to talk more.
