Patriots release veteran wide receiver
While Julian Edelman showed up on the NFL transaction wire today as having his contract terminated by the Patriots, the expectation is that it is a technicality as part of a retirement, per @MikeReiss. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Edelman played only six games last season dealing with a knee injury that limited his production. The Patriots have accumulated Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne in free agency to give their wide receiver room some depth.
