It's safe to say that Edelman's next deal is going to be a lot more costly after he caught 105 passes in 2013.
"Playing for New England is a dream, but like you said, there's a short window in this sport. I don't know yet. There's a lot of things that can happen going forward that could sway that one way or another," Edelman told WBZ-FM in Boston via MassLive.com. "Hopefully it all works out in favor for both."
Edelman said that he had yet to sit down with his agents and come up with a plan. When asked if slot receivers are undervalued around the league, Edelman had a stat at the ready.
"I played 51 percent of the snaps outside, though," Edelman said. "But you can go ahead and call me a slot as well."
Translation: I want to get paid as an outside receiver. It would not be a surprise if Edelman got his best deal outside of New England.
