Julian Edelman is most certainly still in the Patriots' plans going forward. The team offered the sixth-year wide receiver a 3-year deal, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

The kicker, of course, is that they want him to accept before the free agency period opens today at 4 p.m. The team has reportedly been negotiating with Edelman for a couple of weeks now. For news of a proposed deal to come five hours before free agency opens leads us to believe that the Patriots are trying to put pressure on Edelman.

It's up to him whether or not he'll be back, at least on these terms, at this point.
