According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, wide receiver Julian Edelman has agreed to return to Foxboro for the 2014 season.

This is a good move for the Pats, because even though he may not be the “game-breaker” they were hoping to get, he is a good player, he knows the system, and more importantly, he has a great rapport with quarterback Tom Brady. I am sure that Brady will be ecstatic to hear this news, especially after he lost his number one receiver last season (Wes Welker).

New England had been focusing on upgrading their defense thus far in the offseason, but this move secures one offensive play-maker for Brady. It should also be noted that Edelman’s return skills are up there with the best of them, and his abililty to make something happen on special teams is a bonus for Bill Belichick.

Edelman took to twitter to share this news with his fans.

Edelman had a great 2013 campaign, setting career highs in pretty much every category.

    OK, CYRUS,
    Do you think NE will go for another receiver in Free Agency before the draft?
    I hope so because they need to spread the field.

    The Pats need a receiver capable of taking the top off any defense. They would probably have better luck signing a FA who is already experienced in the NFL than drafting a WR and go through the growing pains again. I want the Pats to draft a top TE to make it almost impossible to stop the Pats offense from run or controlling the game through the air. A deep threat would be a good bonus.
