The day before his 33rd birthday, Edelman and the team reportedly agreed to a two-year contract extension Tuesday that could keep him in New England for the remainder of his career.

The Super Bowl 53 MVP is finalizing an extension with the Patriots, according to a report from NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Ian Rapoport then specified that it's a two-year extension and that Edelman will be given a "well-deserved raise" in salary.

Various reports indicated the Patriots were willing to spend close to $10 million per season on the free agents, so it makes sense that the team would be willing to offer a bit more to a proven performer like Edelman.

Edelman has now been in New England for over a decade and has won three Super Bowls. The Kent State product caught 26 passes this postseason, including seven passes for 96 yards in New England's AFC Championship win over Kansas City. During the largest comeback in Super Bowl history, Edelman secured one of the greatest catches the league has ever seen, which was later featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
