Patriots, Edelman reach 2-year extension
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots have signed star receiver Julian Edelman to a two-year contract extension that includes an $8 million signing bonus and $12 million in guaranteed money, a source told ESPN on Tuesday.

The extension through the 2021 season includes $19 million in "new" money, and gives the 32-year-old Edelman, the MVP of Super Bowl LIII, a chance to finish his career where it started.

The extension was first reported Tuesday by NFL Network.

Edelman was scheduled to earn a base salary of $2 million in 2019. He also had a chance to earn a $500,000 workout bonus, $375,000 in roster bonuses and other incentives for this season.

Edelman is their dude ... still remember his magical catch in the Super Bowl vs the Falcons that played into their comeback

he also manages to get away with a lot of stuff, which is a magic of its own I guess

Base salary of only $2 mil this year!!! There's a bargain if I ever heard one. Good for him, he has earned it.
