Jets will sign Braylon Edwards if he clears waivers

The same “idiots” Braylon Edwards was complaining about recently are about to sign him.

According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, the Jets will sign Edwards later today if he clears waivers, according to a source.

Edwards spent two seasons with the Jets, and was one of Mark Sanchez’s favorite targets. But whether he can replicate that magic now remains to be seen.

He caught 88 passes, with 11 touchdowns in those two seasons.

Since they let him leave via free agency, he’s played for two teams and caught 23 passes.

This explains why he was quick to apologize to the idiots, and now we’ll find out if he was right or not.

    Wait, didn’t he just say the Jets are ran by a bunch of idiots? Does this qualify as an idiot move then?

    So Braylon Edwards is seen as a positive factor?

    This explains, as much as anything can, what is wrong with the Yets

    Jets are going to the playoffs whether any1 likes it or not, I hate to say it & I’m a Jets fan, but who’s to say they can’t do damage? Remember those 7-9 Division Champion Seahawks that knocked off the super bowl champs way back when?

    Regardless of his lack of productivity over the last two seasons, he was a productive member of the jets organization for the two years before that.

    I get it, the jets are an easy target because they make an infinite amount of bad decisions in how they act and who they acquire, but i don’t think i can agree with the haters on this one.

    Braylon was a good teammate, and probably the best connection that Sanchez has found in his entire dismal career. With the loss of yet another receiver last week, this is a good move for the jets. Sanchez has a new target whome he already has good rapport with. Teammates and fans alike are happy about this one i think.

    Why don’t they just claim him, I though his deal was a cheap signing…

    Idiots indeed, they deserved to be ridiculed for being idiots, Braylon was right. However they need a WR upgrade and Braylon can be a nice weapon for a team that plays into him the way he needs to be played into. Being called an idiot and then turning around and offering a contract when seemingly nobody else will is a GREAT way to get into the head of a player that works best when you play his game. Ironically this will be a smart move and a good match for the team and the player.

    The rest of the NFL is going to look like idiots for not figuring out how to get Braylon to work. Great story and just maybe enough to help the Jets win the last 3 games and sneak into the playoffs, I approve of this move!!

    Jets are going to playoffs, but who says they can’t do damage?

    Answer: Anyone who is breathing and is not a Jets fan.

    @cervetta, you didn’t need to tell us that you are a jets fan, your delusion speaks for itself

    Even though Braylon didn’t have the stats to show it, he still has plenty of game. He had a touchdown taken away from him in Chicago. He clearly had his hands under the ball.

    He is still a good player when utilized correctly.

    As a Jet fan I’m happy they are signing Edwards but I think its to late. Most likely there season is over unless they get lucky and hes gonna be on the team for 3 games.

    The Jets should go after Fran Tarkenton now.

  19. rcali says: Dec 11, 2012 3:56 PM

    Edwards and the Yets, a perfect match. At least we now know who will be the new “unnamed source” ripping teammates and the organization.

  20. Stiller43 says: Dec 11, 2012 3:58 PM

    Why wouldnt they just claim him? Im guessing he didnt have anything more than a 1 vet min deal…

  21. hehateme2 says: Dec 11, 2012 4:10 PM

    The jets aren’t going anywhere. Playoffs? please. Theryare pathetic. All they are doing is messing up their draft position and ensuring more of the same for next season.

    thanks jets!!

  22. fwippel says: Dec 11, 2012 4:13 PM

    If the Minnesota Vikings don’t place claim on Edwards, Rick Spielman should be fired. Even at his limited production totals recently, he’s more of a threat than any WR on their roster right now.

    Add another act to the three ring circus

    Not worse than your spelling.

    Anytime there is a hint of Jets mentioned, the comments pile up more than any other.

    That speaks volumes!

    Fans of 29 other teams will be joining the Jets watching the Super Bowl. So get ready to order your pizza from some franchise in your town. Or the town nearby.
