The Patriots finalized a two-year extension worth $21 million to perhaps keep Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman in New England for his entire career.

According to multiple reports, the extension includes an $8 million signing bonus and $12 million guaranteed.

The 32-year-old wide receiver's contract was set to expire after the 2019 season. He signed a two-year, $11 million deal in June 2017.

Since the Patriots drafted him in the seventh round in 2009, Edelman has played in 115 regular-season games and tallied 499 receptions for 5,390 yards and 30 touchdowns. In 18 postseason games, he has won three Super Bowl rings and caught 115 passes for 1,412 yards and five scores.

Last season, he caught 74 passes for 850 yards and six TDs after serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Edelman had 10 receptions for 141 yards and was named MVP of New England's 13-3 win against the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII on Feb. 3.
