FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - The New England Patriots have re-signed wide receiver Julian Edelman.

He was an unrestricted free agent.

The 26-year-old former seventh-round draft choice caught 21 passes for 235 yards and three touchdowns last season before going on injured reserve with a foot injury. In four NFL seasons, he has 69 receptions for 714 yards and four touchdowns.

He has also returned three punts for touchdowns, including a franchise-record 94-yarder against Miami in the 2010 season.

The Patriots have lost leading receiver Wes Welker and signed Danny Amendola to replace him.
