Why did undrafted rookie free agent WR Austin Carr, who has been compared to Julian Edelman, choose Patriots?

When Northwestern wide receiver Austin Carr when undrafted in last month’s draft, he could have signed with any team. Five teams apparently showed interest, but in the end he chose the Patriots. Carr primarily plays out of the slot, which is why he’s already received comparisons to Julian Edelman, with some even saying he potentially […]

Will WR Julian Edelman take less money in 2018 to stay with the Patriots?

Will WR Julian Edelman take less money in 2018 to stay with the Patriots?

The Patriots wide receiver will be a free agent after this season. Will he sign an extension to remain in New England? The New England Patriots are preparing for life after WR Julian Edelman and will head into 2018 with Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan, and Malcolm Mitchell at wide receiver, Rob Gronkowski and Dwayne Allen at tight end, and James White and Mike Gillislee at running back. They will be fine on offense with or without Edelman. But there’s no question that the Patriots offense would be better with QB Tom Brady’s favorite target still in the lineup. Edelman turned 31 years of age...

Julian Edelman and Patriots don't expect contract dispute

There will not be a contract dispute between the New England Patriots and wide receiver Julian Edelman, according to NFL Network's Heath Evans. What It Means: Edelman's four-year, $17 million contract will expire after 2017. He's around the same age Wes Welker was when he left New England for a bigger payday, but Evans, a former Patriot himself, doesn't expect that to happen with Edelman. "I don’t think we’re going to see that with Jules," said Evans. "I think Jules embraces the grind-it-out-for-the-common-good mentality." The presence of Brandin Cooks and tight end Rob...

New England Patriots 2017 roster breakdown: #11 WR Julian Edelman

New England Patriots 2017 roster breakdown: #11 WR Julian Edelman

Despite all the new talent around him, Edelman will still be a focal point of the Patriots’ offense. We have entered the deepest depths of the NFL offseason. Free agency and the draft are behind us, while minicamp and training camp won't start until early June and late July, respectively. However, while the football world seemingly turns slower these days it does not stop. After all, until the late-August's roster cuts, players need to have secured their spots on the team. Over the course of the next few months, we will take a look at the men fighting for them on the 2017 New England...

Patriots work out former Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals WR Andrew Hawkins

Patriots work out former Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals WR Andrew Hawkins

The veteran visited New England yesterday. Top to bottom, the New England Patriots have the deepest roster in the NFL; the wide receiver position is no different. With recently acquired Brandin Cooks joining the returning core of Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola and Malcolm Mitchell, the Patriots have as talented, versatile and experienced a group of receivers as any team in the league. However, that does not mean that the team’s scouting department and front office can stop worrying about the position until next year. After all, injuries happen and having potential...

Los Angeles Chargers Sign WR Mitchell Paige

Los Angeles Chargers Sign WR Mitchell Paige

The new Danny Woodhead? Julian Edelman? Wes Welker? The Chargers might have something in newly-sign WR Mitchell Paige. In the last decade or so, the NFL has found amazing value in tough, undersized WRs that run crisp routes and have great hands. Whether or not they can win a jump ball or beat an opposing DB in a footrace is almost irrelevant to the position they play. Wes Welker was the original example of this, formerly cut by the San Diego Chargers and then turned into a star with the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots. Since Welker’s retirement, Julian Edelman has been the best...

Brandin Cooks praises fellow Patriots WR Julian Edelman:

Brandin Cooks praises fellow Patriots WR Julian Edelman: "He's a playmaker"

New England's new addition praises the team's leading receiver. While the New England Patriots have typically entered free agency quietly in the past, mostly staying away from the early frenzy, this year was different. One of the biggest moves the defending world champions made was trading their 2017 first round draft pick to the New Orleans Saints in exchange for wide receiver Brandin Cooks. The 23-year old adds speed and a proven big-play ability to a Patriots’ offense that ranked third in scoring during the 2016 season (despite quarterback Tom Brady only playing 12 games). Given his...

What do Vikings get in Michael Floyd? Another big target, and an on-field project

Two plays from the Patriots regular season finale against the Dolphins showed just how newly-signed Michael Floyd can help the Vikings. Floyd, the 6-foot-3, 220-pound receiver, caught a Tom Brady slant pass at the eight-yard line and barreled through five Dolphins defenders for the touchdown. He then upended an unsuspecting Dolphins cornerback to help spring Julian Edelman for a 77-yard touchdown. “I think it just gives everyone confidence that he can establish a role for himself and that we can rely and count on him when it matters,” Brady told WEEI after the game. The Vikings have...

The Patriots avoided the ran and had some fun at the horse races. The New England Patriots veterans have some time off so Tom Brady took his teammates, including Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Jacoby Brissett, and his archnemesis Jimmy Garoppolo, on their annual trip to the Kentucky Derby where they hung out with some other famous celebrities.
