Despite signing Jacoby Jones to a four year, $14 million contract, it appears that the Ravens are still interested in signing Julian Edelman.
Ravens remain quite interested in WR Julian Edelman. Pats want him back too. Other teams in the mix

La Canfora mentions that the Pats still want him back, but they definitely have some competition with the Ravens. Jones’ contract is also notable for New England, because that probably sets a rough standard for what Edelman is going to get. I am sure that $3.5 million a year is not what Edelman wanted, but that is how the market is shaping up to look like.
I am still of the opinion that New England would be better off signing Emmanuel Sanders, but obviously keeping Edelman at the right price won’t hurt them. We will see how everything shakes out shortly.
Edelman had a great 2013 season, catching 105 balls, racking up 1,056 yards, and hauling in six touchdowns.
