Receiver Julian Edelman reportedly signed a two-year extension with the Patriots.  He will now be in New England through the 2021 season.

The 32-year-old Super Bowl MVP and top Tom Brady target landed an $8 million signing bonus along with $12 million in guaranteed money with the new deal.

It looks like New England is preparing for Brady to reach his goal of playing until he’s 45.  How else do you explain Bill Belichick signing a receiver past his 30th birthday to an extension?

It doesn’t seem all that crazy of an idea given the fact that the Patriots just won another Super Bowl.
