The New England Patriots and wide receiver Julian Edelman are expected to agree to a new one-year deal later today, according to multiple reports.

Edelman, who injured his hand in Week 3, recorded just 21 receptions for 235 yards in nine games last season. He will likely serve as the fourth wide out on the depth chart behind off season acquisitions Danny Amendola, Donald Jones and Emmanuel Sanders, who was signed to an offer sheet earlier in the day.
In his career, the former seventh round pick has three career punt return touchdowns.
