It appears that another suitor has emerged in the race to sign Julian Edelman, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported that he is scheduled to meet with the 49ers this Friday.
Patriots free-agent WR Julian Edelman is scheduled to visit the 49ers on Friday, per source. SF also interested in Giants WR Hakeem Nicks.

I personally would rather see New England go after Emmanuel Sanders, but he may end up elsewhere.
Emmanuel Sanders visits the Chiefs on Friday, according to a source. Has already visited Jaguars, Buccaneers, making the rounds

As for Edelman, I still would like him back in Foxboro in 2014, as his rapport with Tom Brady is at an excellent level right now. And it is not like he is a bad player, he definitely can ball, but I just like Sanders’ skill-set more.
Edelman has a lot of suitors, including the Ravens, Browns, and now the Niners. We will see how this situation plays out over the next couple of days.
