I was an Edwards fan, and before the draft and before any FA signings, I was hoping the team would bring him back, but it is clear that there were concerns about his health.
But why can't Schilens be the same player for us? He has similar size, more speed, is a physical receiver who can block, and doens't come nearly with the baggage that Edwards did, not to mention the cost benefit for the team. He's also younger and still has some upside as many thought he'd be a key player in Oakland, only issues were his own health. He's healthy, and wa healthy when the Jets made the move to sign him over Edwards then, and we all know Edwards wasn't healthy back in the spring, it would have been a risk signing Edwards at the time.
