Julian Edelman is back with the Patriots, and Tom Brady doesn't have to worry about losing his favorite wide receiver again.

Edelman, who caught a career-high 105 passes with six touchdowns after Wes Welker left for the Denver Broncos before last season, re-signed with New England on Tuesday after testing the free-agent market.

The announcement came three days after a post on Edelman's Twitter account said, "Foxboro is home. Excited to be back."

The Patriots did not disclose details of the contract, reportedly worth $17 million over four years.

His signing is the second in two days of a wide receiver by the Patriots. On Monday, they added Brandon LaFell, who became a free agent after catching 49 passes in his fourth NFL season, all with the Carolina Panthers.

New England also has Danny Amendola, who caught 54 passes in a disappointing, injury-plagued first season with the team.

Colts: The family of team owner Jim Irsay said he has placed himself in a treatment facility after police found multiple prescription drugs in his vehicle during a traffic stop.

The 54-year-old Irsay, who acknowledged a painkiller dependency more than a decade ago, faces preliminary charges of misdemeanor driving while intoxicated and four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance. He was arrested near his home late Sunday and released the next day.

If Irsay is charged and convicted on the felony counts, he could face six months to three years in prison on each count. Chief Deputy Prosecutor Andre Miksha said Monday that no decision had been made on formal charges, and a hearing was set for March 26. An NFL spokesman said Irsay is subject to discipline but didn't elaborate on what that might be.

Panthers: Cam Newton will undergo surgery Wednesday on his left ankle and will be sidelined for four months, the team announced.

The Panthers said the Pro Bowl quarterback has experienced soreness in the ankle since the end of last season, and the problem simply wasn't getting better.

"The ankle was sore after the San Francisco game, and we wanted to see if rest would calm it down, but it is still bothering him and the decision was made to address it," Panthers trainer Ryan Anderson said in a release.

The Panthers lost to the 49ers on Jan. 12 in the NFC divisional playoffs.

If all goes as expected, Newton could return before training begins at the end of July.

Browns: Wide receiver Andrew Hawkins is joining Cleveland after the Cincinnati Bengals declined to match an offer sheet for the elusive playmaker. The Bengals announced their decision to let Hawkins go about eight hours before a five-day deadline to equal Cleveland's offer to the slot player was to expire. The Browns signed Hawkins, a restricted free agent, to a four-year, $13.6 million offer sheet Thursday. He fills a major need for the Browns at slot receiver.
