The Seahawks are done with receiver Braylon Edwards. Another team that was believed to be done with Braylon Edwards may not be.
Edwards officially was waived from injured reserve on Monday, which will give the Jets and every other team a chance to claim him on waivers. The Jets, per Schefter, could indeed claim Edwards or try to sign him if he clears waivers.
With the Jets suddenly in unexpected position to steal a playoff spot, thanks to losses on Sunday by the Bengals and Steelers, and with receiver Stephen Hill suffering a knee injury against the Jaguars, the Jets have a need — and Edwards could be the one to fill it.
Edwards later apologized for the “idiots” comment, which may be good enough for the Jets. Especially since they have a clear and significant requirement at the position Edwards plays.
