Julian Edelman: 'Excited' To Be Back

Shortly after it was announced that Julian Edelman would be returning to New England (we don’t know how long yet, those details have yet to emerge), the wideout took to twitter to express his excitement.

Edelman also posted a picture of the word “homecoming” on his facebook page. Here is the caption he added:

 Aaaaand….we’re back. #GOPATS

I have been saying this for a long time, but I think the Patriots still need to do more at the receiver position. Edelman is a good player, however there is no real “explosion” in his receiving game. It doesn’t seem like Emmanuel Sanders wants to be in New England, but that would really be a great fit for both sides.

Locking up Edelman was important for Tom Brady and company, but adding another veteran receiver should be a priority for Bill Belichick and the rest of the New England front office.
