Braylon Edwards only combined for 88 receptions, 1,445 yards and 11 TD's during his two seasons with the Jets. He also had a history of "the drops" (especially during the 2009 season). But yeah, Braylon Edwards was a decent WR production wise, averaging 44 receptions, 722.6 receiving yards and 5.5 TD's per season.
Just about the same production as an aging 34-35 year old WR in Burress (who had nothing left between the 20's). Burress even put up 45 receptions, 612 receiving yards and 8 TD's.
The biggest impact Braylon Edwards ever made for our offense, was his ability to get out there and run block. Thankfully Stephen Hill was rated as the Nation's #1 run blocking prospect coming out of college. Earned lots of experience run blocking for Georgia Tech, inside of a run first (option) offense.
