Jets cut Braylon Edwards, roster now at 75

Getty Images

The New York Jets’ final roster cut to reach the Tuesday limit of 75 players was a big name: Braylon Edwards.

Edwards, the wide receiver who has had three stints with the Jets, was released this morning. That got the Jets to exactly 75 players, the limit every team must reach by tomorrow at 4 p.m. ET.

For the 30-year-old Edwards, this may be the end of the road. He hasn’t been a regular starter since 2010, and given his lack of recent production and his knee problems, it’s entirely possible that no other team will pick him up now that the Jets have sent him packing.

Edwards was once considered one of the most promising receivers in the NFL. He was the third overall pick in the 2005 NFL draft, and he made the Pro Bowl in 2007. But he never came close to matching the success he had in that great 2007 season, and now he’s out of work.

  1. Braylon Edwards is in a relationship with The Jets

    Braylon Edwards is in a relationship and It’s Complicated.

  2. So Braylon Edwards caught the axe, huh? On the plus side, at least he finally caught something.

  3. …cuz Stephen Hill, Jeremy Kerley, & Santonio “I would rather play anywhere else” Holmes are SOOO much better.

    Braylon obviously isn’t that good anymore. If he every really was. But… there is a lack of overall talent on the Jets offense.

    Oh well, the march to JaDeveon Clowney keeps on rolling,

    Anyone else wonder how B.E. would fare with a QB to throw him passes? You know belichick is giving this guy serious consideration.

    That’s the funniest thing I’ve read in days. Thanks!

    Lol doubt that very much. BB likes people who actually catch the ball instead of dropping it.

    The Pats are fine with the receivers they have now. They will be a surprise this year to quite a lot of people I think.

  6. I think he should have cut Rex Ryan instead. Only an idiot would put what is potentially your starting QB back into a meaningless football game and watch him go down with an injury. Not that the jets were going to the playoffs anyways. Until the organization gets smart and fires Rex foot fetish Ryan, they are going to be doomed.

    The guy’s been cut more time than a paper snowflake. If Belichick wasn’t interested the first 37 times, why would he be interested now?

  8. Perhaps he was cut now so his contract isn’t fully guaranteed when he’s on the roster week one. My guess is Braylon will be back week 2 if he’s healthy.

  9. To those Jets haters:

    Why don’t you put on your big boy pants when you post your hatred and name your team at the end of your post??

    Thought so!

  10. It seems like every team in the NFL has at least one guy who is considered one of the top guys at their position…I am not sure who the Jets best player is…Cromartie??

    Let me guess , you played football until you blew out your knee, or was it baseball and you just couldn’t hit the curve?

  12. Wasted talent, the guy was fast as hell in San Francisco…..just ask the cop that pulled him over doing 120mph…

  13. I didn’t realize the Jets had enough talent at receiver to cut a player with ‘elite’ skills.

  14. The Jets front office should be embarrassed by the total lack of their ability to correctly evaluate player talent.

  15. I saw Edwards make some unbelievable catches and drop some that hit him in the numbers with no defensive back within 10 yards. You’d think that he fit the Jets perfectly.

  16. Despite the flock of Internet haters, I thought he was still among their best receivers, drops and all…..can’t really stand with the Lose-for-Clowney conspiracy theorists either ; with Rex fighting for his job, can’t see him let a good player get away on a team with such limited options on offense….assume he’s counting on Holmes to come back big and one of the younger guys to blossom, although that could be problematic considering the uncertainty at QB….

    Hey Teddy, I stay on my board, the Jets . Been a fan for 40 years.
    Mostly bad years too. Don’t need ego boosts by trolling or bandwagoning.

  22. Jacksonville Jaguars, Iowa State Cyclones, Toronto Argonauts… you get the idea.

    I sure do Mr. chewing lightbulbs. I sure do!
    Even Jets fans feel sorry for you.

  23. “it’s entirely possible that no other team will pick him up now that the Jets have sent him packing.”

    So true. If you’re cut by the jets, you don’t belong in the league.
