Jets General Manager John Idzik and coach Rex Ryan were busy men on Tuesday, giving interviews to just about everyone this side of Jerry Springer.

As you’d probably imagine, the majority of the questions were about the menagerie of quarterbacks the team has accumulated over the years. Somewhere amid the goodbyes to Tim Tebow and promises of a competition between the remaining players, there was some discussion of other spots on the team as well. One of them was wide receiver, a spot the Jets did not address during the draft even though they are currently relying heavily on a full recovery from Santonio Holmes and rapid improvement from Stephen Hill.

Idzik was specifically asked about the possibility of a return from Braylon Edwards, who played the final three games of the season with the Jets after getting waived by the Seahawks. Idzik was in Seattle last year, knows Edwards and said that the veteran was on the radar for a third spin with the Jets.

“I know [Edwards] very well. Guys like that would be under consideration as we go forward, for sure,” Idzik said, via Rich Cimini of

Edwards, who had 10 catches after arriving back with the Jets, isn’t the only option. Mike Garafolo of USA Today reports that the team has had conversations with former Giant Ramses Barden about coming on board as a free agent. Barden had 29 catches in four years with the Giants — nine of them in one 2012 game — and hasn’t seen much interest in his services so far this offseason.

  1. Bring back Edwards. The man is solid. Any Jets fan who watches this guy on the field know he fights for every yard. We need his veteran pressence on the field if we’re going to get anywhere.

  2. Edwards wouldn’t be a bad signing if they get a QB that can throw the ball to him. Sanchez would not be that guy.

  3. Get in line and order your Super Bowl tickets! Braylon Edwards??!!! and don’t forget, the great Rex Ryan leading the charge. It’s almost unfair to the rest of the NFL.

  4. re-sign Edwards and give Geno Smith the job. if we are in the”rebuilding stages” i can’t take another year of Mark Sanchez playing. I rather watch a rookie make mistakes and learn.

  5. andthehomeofthejets…. agreed 100%, I believe most Jet fans would hope for this, Mark Sanchez has totally worn out his welcome in New York.

  6. What happens when you take two geniuses and Rex Ryan, and you put them all in one room for an hour? Answer: You’ll have three idiots when they exit the room.

  7. I like Edwards as much as people get on him. With his career going down into a funnel, I can defiantly see his career resurrecting.

  8. Edwards ‘was’ a possibility but his fb life is gloomy.

    There is nothing in his highlights w/jet, bengals to ever let him back. Would make another circus and as said would be another clown
