Last year the Jets decided they didn’t have any use for wide receiver Braylon Edwards anymore, letting him leave for San Francisco, where he was a non-factor before getting cut in December. But that doesn’t mean the Jets wouldn’t be open to having Edwards return this year.
In fact, Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum said shortly after the season ended that he would consider bringing Edwards back, and he reiterated that today.
Bob Glauber of Newsday reports that Tannenbaum cited Edwards’ intense practice habits as one of the qualities the team likes about him and added, “I would not rule him out.”
Edwards is undeniably talented, and at age 29 he should still have some good years left in him. He’s currently rehabbing a knee injury but is expected to be healthy in plenty of time for training camp. Tannenbaum said that after the Jets evaluate their post-draft roster, there might be a place for Edwards.
“I don’t expect us to sign anybody before the draft,” Tannenbaum said. “We’ll see where that goes heading into May and June.”
