According to CBS Insider Jason La Canfora, the San Francisco 49ers aren't the only team that is interested in New England Patriots free agent wide receiver Julian Edelman. His former team is working to bring him back. The Patriots are trying to get a deal done with Edelman, a Bay Area native, who was visiting with the 49ers today.
