The New England Patriots and free agent Julian Edelman came to terms on a new contract, as the wide receiver announced his return on Twitter yesterday afternoon.

“Foxboro is home. Excited to be back,” Edelman wrote.

Edelman caught 105 passes for 1,056 yards and six touchdowns last year, helping to ease the void left by receiver Wes Welker’s departure in free agency last March.

Edelman is also the team’s top punt returner, bringing back 35 punts for 374 yards last year.
