Edelman, Julian (WR)

Posted April 11, 2013 @ 3:43 p.m.
The New England Patriots have re-signed Edelman. He was an unrestricted free agent.
The 26-year-old former seventh-round draft choice caught 21 passes for 235 yards and three touchdowns last season before going on injured reserve with a foot injury. In four NFL seasons, he has 69 receptions for 714 yards and four touchdowns. He has also returned three punts for touchdowns, including a franchise-record 94-yarder against Miami in the 2010 season.

Dennard, Alfonzo (CB)

Posted April 11, 2013 @ 11:02 a.m.
Dennard was sentenced Thursday to 30 days in jail and two years of probation for assaulting a police officer outside a Lincoln bar last year.
In court, Dennard apologized to his coaches, supporters, police and his family and promised to abide by the terms of the probation. He declined comment after leaving court.

Gronkowski, Rob (TE)

Posted April 07, 2013 @ 1:22 p.m.
The New England Patriots say they don't have any comment on published reports that Gronkowski has an infection in his broken arm that could keep him out into the season.
The Boston Herald reported on Sunday that Gronkowski has an infection in the area where a metal plate was installed to repair his left forearm. Doctors will have to wait for the infection to go away to replace the plate, and Gronkowski would need 10 weeks after that to recover, the paper said. Patriots spokesman Stacey James said the team doesn't expect to comment on the report.

Jenkins, Michael (WR)

Posted March 28, 2013 @ 5:48 p.m.
The New England Patriots have signed free agent wide receiver Michael Jenkins.
In his ninth season, Jenkins caught 40 passes for 447 yards and two touchdowns with the Minnesota Vikings last year. He joined them in 2011 after seven seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, who drafted him in the first round in 2004 out of Ohio State.

Kelly, Tommy (DT)

Posted March 27, 2013 @ 3:49 p.m.
The Oakland Raiders have released Kelly, cutting ties with their longest-tenured position player on the roster.
Kelly signed a $50.1 million, seven-year contract to remain with Oakland in 2008. He was owed $6.5 million this year before being cut. Kelly had one sack in 16 games last season.
