And it may just be all talk.
Jason La Canfora of NFL Network writes that the Jets “won’t fight that hard” to keep Edwards.
“Edwards can be petulant, is inconsistent and has made poor decisions off the field,” La Canfora writes. “He will wow you with one moment of splendor then fall back into a bone-headed funk. I’d expect his worst traits to be exacerbated once he has that big contract.”
While we don’t disagree with anything La Canfora writes there, the idea that the Jets won’t go all out for Edwards is a new one. Perhaps they will go all out to keep Santonio Holmes instead. (Which we think is the right move.)
