Julian Edelman returns to Patriots

Receiver Julian Edelman has agreed to a one-year contract to return to the Patriots, a league source confirmed.

Edelman had visited the Giants but it’s not known whether or not he was extended an offer.

Edelman will likely backup Danny Amendola at the Z receiver position in the Patriots’ offense. Both have had issues with health, so doubling up is a smart move. Both are very similar athletically.
