Braylon Edwards taking physical with Jets

It looks like the Jets and wide receiver Braylon Edwards just can’t quit each other.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that Edwards is taking a physical with the Jets on Wednesday. Should all go well on the medical front, Edwards is expected to join the team for the third time. His first Jets stint began with a trade from the Browns, where he played with new Jets tight end Kellen Winslow, in 2009 and ended after the 2010 season while the second run took place late last season after Edwards was dropped by the Seahawks.

Edwards caught 18 passes between the two teams last year and had just 15 catches with the 49ers in 2011 in a year that also saw him have knee surgery. Those numbers are not particularly impressive, but neither is a Jets receiving corps that is still waiting on Santonio Holmes to set a target date in his return from a Lisfranc injury.

Edwards probably isn’t going to return to the level of 2010, when he averaged 17.1 yards per catch and seven touchdowns as an effective deep threat, but the Jets are so thin at wideout that the mere possibility is enough to justify bringing him on board.

    One of the fastest WR’s in the league…..120mph on the highways of San Francisco

    Does he still think they’re “idiots”?

    His Dougie celebrations alone, make this a great pickup. Also, besides being notorious for his drops while he was with the Browns, he really showed up in games when the Jets needed him most. TD catches in Miami, and Indy come to mind.

    Love Braylon in the green and white, always supports his QB and brings a good veteran knowledge base to guys like Stephen Hill and Kerley. Lets make it happen!

    They never should have let him go in the first place. Edwards is an ok player but he seemed to have good chemistry with Sanchez. The same was true of Cotchery. And let’s face it, Sanchez needs all the help he can get.

    As a Jets fan, I love this. He loves the Jets and plays hard for us. We the fans love his enthusiasm and his back flips. May he have a long successful stay with us.

    Don’t!! UFA Ryan Spadola out of Lehigh is someone I think can grow into a real threat at WR, and bringing this guy back is only going to gobble up one of those roster spots that SHOULD go to a guy who has a chance for a future, rather than Father Time.

    This is long overdue. Glad that it finally happened. Hopefully he is healthy and passes the physical.

    This man still gots IT, I dont care what anyone says. I would be surprised I he was their #1 receiver this year.

    @ccjcsr Watch out the way your team coaching staff is running their own players into the ground Edwards might be heading to cowgirl camp. LOL and LMAO.

    Hate the Jets all you want, bash Edwards for his drops in Cleveland, but Edwards was always a beast for the Jets. I don’t know any other fellow Jets fans that don’t want Edwards. Throw in how inexperienced our wide receivers are, and I’m not sure why this wasn’t done months ago.

    If you’re a Jets fan and you’re excited about this….that’s scary!!!! Have fun NY!!!

    They needed someone for Geno to overthrow while Holmes is out…

  19. dicktrickle97 says: Jul 24, 2013 3:46 PM

    im so pumped he is back in green and white he was there best reciever last year when he got sighned

  20. jetsoptimist says: Jul 24, 2013 3:47 PM

    If he passes his physical its a safe low-risk signing. He’s still not a #1 WR but I still like the signing. I wanna see S Hill step up and some of the undrafted WR’s as well, but you can’t base your season on unknowns.

    Edwards is certain that between his stone hands and Sanchez’ throwing skills that he can lead the league in drops this year.
