The Patriots have re-signed wide receiver Julian Edelman to a 1-year contract, according to multiple reports.
Edelman, a four-year veteran, visited with the New York Giants earlier this month but apparently decided to return to New England. He was drafted by the Patriots in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL draft out of Kent State, where he played quarterback. He's had 69 receptions for 714 yards and four touchdowns in his career, along with 72 punt returns for 943 yards and three touchdowns.
His deal was first reported by USA Today's Mike Garafolo.
