You know the drill by now. Initial reports on the value of a contract often are exaggerated (since they usually come from the player’s agent). Patriots receiver Julian Edelman‘s new deal vaguely was sold in some circles as a two-year, $18 million extension. The truth is that Edelman’s contract as extended has a base value of less than $18 million over the next three years.
