- Volin adds that Patriots haven’t discussed extensions with G Logan Mankins and S Devin McCourty and a new contract for C Ryan Wendell about a new contract.
As of now, locking up CB Aqib Talib to a long-term contract appears to be the Patriots’ focus. However, it would seem reasonable for them to speak to Edelman and his representatives in the coming weeks to see what his asking price is.
Edelman could be in for a decent market after being forced to sign a one-year contract that included a base salary of just $715,000. Some have mentioned that he could command a similar contract to that of fellow Patriots Danny Amendola who signed a five-year, $28.5 million contract that included $10 million guaranteed this offseason.
We have him listed as the No. 36 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
