The Patriots have reached an agreement with Julian Edelman to keep him in Foxboro. This is a huge move for the Patriots because they have been building up their defense in particular their secondary this offseason by adding Revis and Browner (we will get to that later). This move brings Brady’s favorite target last season (103 catches) and brings back the 3rd ranked offense in the league. Oh and we will have Gronk back this year also. You have to love the loyalty of Julian Edelman.
The Patriots also signed free agent Brandon Browner to a three year, 17 million dollar year. Browner is a 6’4 corner back who lock down almost any wide receiver in the NFL. But with the Patriots already having the Logan Ryan/Alfonzo Dennard corner back combo do the Patriots move Browner to safety to replace Steve Gregory? He certantly has the height to do so and the Patriots have the depth at cornerback to afford to move Browner to safety. This would also allow the Patriots to draft Jace Amaro at tight end to compliment Gronk on offense instead of drafting safety Ha-Ha Clint-Dix. Browner will have to serve a 4 game suspension at the start of the year for PED use.
