The Patriots have signed seventh-round pick Julian Edelman to a four-year deal with a $48,700 signing bonus. Edelman was a dual threat quarterback at Kent State, but New England is attempting to convert him to wide receiver. He led Kent State in rushing last season with 1,551 yards and 13 TDs in 215 attempts and also completed 153 of 275 passes for 1,820 yards and 13 touchdowns.
