Report: Jets to sign Braylon Edwards to a one-year deal
According to several sources, the team and the 30-year-old wideout the Jets have agreed to terms on a one-year deal, and Edwards will sign that on Thursday after passing a physical on Wednesday.
Edwards was first traded from Cleveland to the Jets in October 2009 and spent 2009 and 2010 with Gang Green, catching 88 passes for 1,445 yards and 11 touchdowns over 28 total games. After nearly two years away, he returned in December 2012 after being waived by Seattle and caught 10 passes for 125 yards in three games.
The Jets placed Santonio Holmes on the physically unable to perform list prior to training camp, leaving Ben Obomanu as the only one of their 12 rostered receivers with more than three years in the league – so Edwards would provide quarterback Mark Sanchez not only with a veteran wideout, but also one he has experience with.
