Former Kent State quarterback Julian Edelman has signed a contract with the New England Patriots according to a report on boston.com. Edelman, who was a seventh round pick in April, signed a four year deal worth $1.7 million with a $48,700 signing bonus. Edelman really impressed people during the rookie mini-camp and the team's mandatory mini-camp. He will be a versatile player for the Patriots as he makes the transition to wide receiver. Edelman can also be used in the return game and line up at quarterback in the "wildcat offense".
