Report: Jets no longer interested in Braylon Edwards

The Jets have apparently closed the door on Braylon Edwards coming back.

The New York Post reported that they Jets have ruled it out, opting to go with a group of younger wideouts.

Edwards caught just 15 passes for 181 yards in nine games with San Francisco last year, as he was slowed by knee and shoulder injuries. The 49ers released him before the end of the regular season, and some thought the Jets were a logical landing spot.

That’s good news for second-round pick Stephen Hill, who will have a solid chance to start opposite Santonio Holmes. That’s partly because the rest of the Jets wideouts are guys such as Chaz Schillens and Jeremy Kerley.

There was a report over a month ago that Cincinnati might be interested, but nothing has materialized since then, which can’t be a good sign at a time when teams have roster spots to burn.

    Bad teammate, drops too many balls, often injured.

    Shocked nobody is jumping on this guy.

    this guy was once a real talent in the league. then, as happens to so many, he proved to be vulnerable to incidents at the bar, and shootings. really unfortunate.

    i think, as a packers fan, that if he cleans up his act he would be a nice addition to GB’s wr corps

    Hahaha.. 49ers release him for a reason! Randy Moss will make Edwards look like he never even signed with the 49ers before.

    Aside from having hands of stone, the Jets would have no way to get the ball to him, even if he could catch it. They have one QB that’s high school quality, and the other is a fullback in disguise.

    “Randy Moss will make Edwards look like he never even signed with the 49ers before.”

    Who?

    Guess you forgot Randy’s NFL tour before he retired?

    I like the guy, but he had the same horrible season after a decent season like Edwards did.
