WR Julian Edelman isn't sure if he'll be back with Patriots

Thanks to injuries and a handful of green wideouts, Julian Edelman @Edelman11 was thrust into a leading role in the Patriots' offense this season. He responded with a 105-1,056-6 line, and did it just in time before he hit the open market.
Edelman hinted in a Boston radio interview Thursday that he would like to return to New England, but knows that might not happen
"Playing for New England is a dream, but like you said, there's a short window in this sport," Edelman said. "I don't know yet. There's a lot of things that can happen going forward that could sway that one way or another. Hopefully it all works out in favor for both."

Fantasy Analysis:

The first sentence in that quote sounds like a man who understands he may never have another chance to cash in for big money. So, he's gonna do it big now. Perhaps the Patriots won't be able to afford the 27-year-old Edelman, but they should at least make him a high priority. With Danny Amendola @DannyAmendola and Rob Gronkowski @RobGronkowski firmly entrenched in the "injury prone" column, and youngsters Kenbrell Thompkins @KTdaWinner and Aaron Dobson @aarondobson17 still learning the ropes, Edelman provides Tom Brady with a simply Welker-like safety blanket. He was the Patriots' most valuable pass-catcher this season by miles.
