Report: Patriots haven’t contacted Edelman or Mankins about a new contract

According to the Boston Globe, the Patriots haven’t contacted either Julian Edelman or Logan Mankins about a new contract.

While they had preliminary contact with the agent of free agent cornerback Aqib Talib at the combine, sources say they haven’t approached impending free agents Julian Edelman and Ryan Wendell about contracts, or guard Logan Mankins or safety Devin McCourty about potential extensions to help lower their 2014 cap numbers.

With the kind of season Edelman had, the Patriots have to re-sign him.
