Edelman's contract had been set to expire after the upcoming season.

According to multiple reports, the deal, which runs through 2021, includes an $8 million signing bonus and $12 million guaranteed.

NFL Media's Mike Garafolo first reported the news, while fellow insider Ian Rapoport disclosed the extension's length. Tom Brady's security blanket is now locked in for his 10th season and beyond.

Since entering the league in 2009 as an undrafted free agent out of Kent State with the Patriot, the 5-foot-10, 198-pound Edelman, who turns 33 on Wednesday, developed into one of the NFL's most reliable weapons.

Julian Edelman is reportedly on the verge of signing a new contract. He caught 26 passes for 388 yards in three games, including 151 yards in the divisional round against the Chargers and 141 yards in the Super Bowl against the Rams.

Edelman, 32, led the Patriots in receiving yards (850) in 2018 and finished second on the team with 74 receptions, scoring six touchdowns on the year.

He was also a key member of New England's Super Bowl winning teams in 2015 and 2017.

For his career, Edelman has 499 catches for 5,390 yards and 30 TDs in the regular season and another 115 catches for 1,412 yards and 5 TDs in the playoffs. 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.
