FLORHAM PARK, NJ – Various media sources are reporting that the team is close to re-signing veteran WR Braylon Edwards. Sources say he was in Florham Park this afternoon for a physical and will be in Cortland tomorrow when players are set to report after he signs a one year contract.
With the announcement today of Santonio Holmes starting camp on the PUP lis and his return date uncertain, the signing of Edwards brings some needed veteran depth to the team’s shaky wide receiving corps. The Jets signed Edwards towards the end of last season after he was released by the 49ers. His first stint with the Jets was in 2009-2010 where he caught 11 TD’s and was Mark Sanchez’s favorite target during their two consecutive AFC Championship Game runs.
A fan favorite, during this off-season many fans had lobbied the Jets on social media to re-sign Edwards and barring any surprises, their wishes will soon come true.
The Jets first full team practice is Friday in Cortland. Be sure to check back to JetsInsider.com often for full coverage!
