Weeks after being named the most valuable player in last season’s Super Bowl, New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman had his contract restructured earlier today, which should keep him in New England for the remainder of his career.

According to multiple reports, Edelman’s new contract will keep him with the Patriots through the 2021 season.

As noted through ProFootballTalk.com, Edelman’s contract was set to expire after the upcoming season.

According to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com, Edelman’s new contract “includes an $8 million signing bonus and $12 million in guaranteed money.”

Prior to being named the Super Bowl most valuable player, Edelman hauled in 74 receptions on 108 targets for 850 yards and six touchdowns in 12 regular season contests. Edelman was suspended for the first four games of the 2018 season for testing positive for PED (performance-enhancing drug) use.

In three playoff games, Edelman recorded 26 receptions on 35 targets for a career-best 388 receiving yards, while also tallying two carries for 15 yards.

Since being drafted in 2009, Edelman has become quarterback Tom Brady‘s go-to receiver in both the regular season and postseason.

According to ProFootballReference.com, Edelman has recorded 499 receptions in 115 games, including 30 grabs in the end zone. He has tallied 5,390 receiving yards, which is an average of 10.8 yards per reception.

Edelman and the Patriots will begin their recent title defense on Sunday, September 8 when they host the Pittsburg Steelers for an 8:20 p.m. kickoff.

Tom Brady will be adding an additional ring to his championship collection, thanks to a hard-fought 13-3 win this evening by the New England Patriots over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII.

Brady, who became the first-ever NFL quarterback to win six Super Bowls, engineered a key five-play, 69-yard drive midway through the fourth quarter, which was capped by a two-yard plunge by Sony Michel to provide the Patriots with a 10-3 advantage.

The Rams attempted to answer on the ensuing possession but saw quarterback Jared Goff‘s pass down intercepted by Stephon Gilmore. Nine plays later, the Patriots sealed the win with a 41-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski, who concluded the contest with a pair of field goals (his second attempt in the second quarter provided the Patriots with a 3-0 lead).

Los Angles did have a chance to slice the deficit on the game’s final drive, but Greg Zuerlein‘s second field goal sailed wide left.

The win – New England’s sixth Super Bowl since winning its initial crown 17 years earlier – ties the Pittsburgh Steelers with the most championships won in the Super Bowl era. The Patriots captured their first championship 17 years ago on this exact date when they defeated the Rams, 20-17, thanks to a game-winning field goal by Adam Vinatieri.

Neither team was able to produce points until New England’s fourth drive when Gostkowski capped a seven-play, 39-yard drive with a 42-yard field goal.

Los Angeles had a chance to even the score before halftime, but all three of its final series ended with a punt.

Extra, Extra

  • In the Brady-Bill Belichick era, the Patriots are now 3-2 in Super Bowls when leading at the break. The Patriots are 2-0 when tied at the break (won in 2004 and 2014), and 1-1 when trailing (won in 2016, lost in 2017).
  • Los Angeles is now 0-2 in Super Bowl era with their initial loss coming in 1980 against the Steelers.
