With Edelman suffering the injury last August and no reported setbacks, it would seem likely he will be present at the start of training camp in July.

Here’s the videos of Edelman working out.

Julian Edelman’s health a key for Patriots in 2018

With the 2017 season in the books, the Providence Journal will take a look at each position group on the Patriots, analyzing how the team performed last season and where it might be heading in the future.

Wide Receivers

Julian Edelman, Brandin Cooks, Danny Amendola, Chris Hogan, Malcolm Mitchell, Phillip Dorsett, Kenny Britt, Cody Hollister, Riley McCarron, Bernard Reedy.

Contract situation: The Patriots are set to return almost everyone from last year’s roster.

Cooks will enter 2018 on the final year of his rookie deal. The Patriots already exercised his fifth-year option so he’ll count as an $8.459 million cap hit. Edelman is under contract for the next two seasons. He’ll count for around $4.166 million this season and around $4.66 million in 2019.

Hogan enters 2018 on the final year of his contract. He’s on the books for around $3.281 million this season. Mitchell enters the third year of his rookie deal and is under contract for the next two seasons. He counts as a $774,498 cap hit in 2018 and an $864,498 cap hit in 2019.

Dorsett is in the final year of his rookie deal (in the event the Patriots don’t exercise his $8.135 million fifth-year option). The receiver is due to make around $1.544 million in 2018. Britt is set to count as a $1.468 million cap hit in 2018. That is not guaranteed. Reedy has a base salary of $555,000 in 2018. The Pats signed Hollister and McCarron to futures contracts.

Amendola enters the offseason as a free agent.

2017 review: Injuries took a toll on the team’s depth.

Things started poorly when Edelman was lost for the season in August with a torn ACL. Mitchell also was lost for the season with a knee injury. That left Tom Brady focusing on Cooks, Amendola and Hogan. Things were going well, but then Hogan missed about half the season because of a shoulder injury.

In his first season with the Patriots, Cooks finished seventh in the NFL in yards per reception (16.6). He finished second on the team in receptions (65), receiving yards (1,082) and receiving touchdowns (seven). Cooks joined Randy Moss and Wes Welker as the only receivers with over 1,000 receiving yards in their first season with Brady. He played well in the AFC Championship Game, catching six passes for 100 yards, but was knocked out of the Super Bowl with a concussion.

Amendola was great in 2017. He battled injuries, but finished third on the team in receptions (61) and yards (659). Once again, he came up huge in the playoffs, catching 26 passes for 348 yards. Amendola caught eight passes for 152 yards in the Super Bowl.

Hogan looked bound for a career year before a shoulder injury caused him to miss seven of the last eight games. He caught 34 passes for 439 yards and five touchdowns in nine games. In Super Bowl LII, Hogan caught six passes for 128 yards and a score.

Dorsett never really caught on. The 25-year-old caught 12 passes for 194 yards last season. In the playoffs, he caught two passes for 50 yards. Britt, signed late in the year, was inactive for all three postseason games. He caught two passes for 23 yards in three regular-season games with the Patriots.

The future: It makes sense for the Patriots to bring back Amendola. He’s on the same page as Brady and one of the best clutch performers in franchise history. He’ll turn 33 next season, so it might not cost the team a king’s ransom.

The depth chart hinges on the health of Edelman and Mitchell. Edelman, who turns 32 in May, appears to be on track to return. It’s worth watching if Mitchell can also make a full recovery. Add those two with Cooks and Hogan and the Patriots have ample depth. Add in Amendola and they’ll be rolling. At that point, can Britt or Dorsett make the team?

Of course, with two receivers over 30, the team could always get younger. With Cooks and Hogan entering contract years, the Patriots could look for additional youth.
