The legal tampering period started on Saturday, which means that teams across the NFL can get in touch with free agent receiver Julian Edelman.
But it sounds as though his current team -- still his team until the start of the new league year on Tuesday -- is making a strong push to keep him around, according to our Mike Giardi.
According to team source, there's strong push in bldg to keep Edelman. Coaches love his work ethic & production as dual threat #patriotstalk— Michael Giardi (@MikeGiardi) March 9, 2014
Edelman can re-sign with the Patriots at any time. If he chooses to re-sign with a different team, he'll have to wait until the official beginning of the league's free agency period, which kicks off on Tuesday.
