Braylon Edwards appears to be on the way out in New York, writing on Twitter today that he doesn’t think the Jets want him.
“I would love to be a Jet but the feeling doesn’t seem to be mutual with the management.” He later deleted his tweet, but Jenny Vrentas of the Star-Ledger was among the reporters who had already spotted it. (Note: Once something has been published online, it never really disappears.)
All indications are that the Jets made Santonio Holmes their top priority, and after signing Holmes, they won’t spend the kind of money it would take to sign Edwards as well. So we can expect him to test the free agent market.
Edwards had more to say on Twitter, having a laugh about getting sentenced to probation and community service for drunk driving.
“All these court appearances I should have practiced law,” Edwards tweeted. “Lol quick joke to lighten up my mood, bare with me the storm will be over shortly.”
Edwards then pleaded for some team to step up and make him an offer “so we can get this thing moving forward.”
For Edwards, moving forward will apparently mean moving away from the Jets.
