Braylon Edwards, Brad Smith sign RFA tenders

Against a background of ongoing labor strife, two key members of the Jets’ offense have opted not to take a stand against rules that prevented them from having a shot at unrestricted free agency in the uncapped year.

Rich Cimini of the New York Daily News reports that Jets receivers Braylon Edwards and Brad Smith have signed their restricted free agency tenders.

As a result, both players are under contract and obligated to participate in all mandatory offseason activities.  While the contracts are not guaranteed, they players are fully protected in the event a season-ending injury is sustained during offseason workouts.

Per Cimini, both players also have reported for the voluntary offseason program.

Cimini reports that the only two no-shows for the launch of the workouts were unsigned running back Leon Washington and newly-signed linebacker Lance Laury.

    The real question is……Did Braylon drop the pen when signing?

    I wonder how many times Braylon dropped his pen…

    Just before Braylon Edwards signed his tender, he dropped the pen.

    If the contracts are not guaranteed, how are they protected from injury?

    Looks like old stone hands edwards found something he can hang on to. What a douchebag, he’ll never be worth as much as he thinks he is, ever!

    I wonder how many morons will make the “bet he dropped the pen” joke.
    Over/Under is set at 10 of the first 25
    The other 10 or so will just call him or the Jets some unflattering names and maybe 5 of every 25 will actually make a football related comment.

    “Against a background of ongoing labor strife…” Those creative writing classes are really starting to pay off Florio.

    Did anyone mention Braylon dropping his pen?
    (duh)

    This is exactly why PFT shouldn’t have such a long delay between people typing a comment, and it actually being posted. Am I supposed to believe that someone really checks these all out??? Hell, half of ‘em end with ‘suck it Florio you douche’…………

    How funny would it have been if Braylon dropped the pen as he was signing?!?!

    every single player except a rb rehabbing an injury and a guy signed a few days ago made it to VOLUNTARY workouts – yeah this guy clearly is leading an undisciplined team
