With all the talk about what the Jets might do in free agency, a name not getting enough attention is WR Braylon Edwards.
He’s in his prime (30), and did some nice things for the Jets in the final three games, after being claimed off waivers from Seattle.
And he really, really wants to be a Jet. He’s not a mercenary – he really likes being a Jet.
Also, he will not cost a lot, perhaps in the $1-2 million range. He played for low salaries the last two years in San Francisco and Seattle. After two nondescript seasons in a row, due to injuries and limited playing time, there isn’t going to be a big market for him.
If he’s healthy (he had a little knee issue the last couple of years), this is an no-brainer signing.
He would give the Jets a #1 receiver, and it wouldn’t cost them a lot.
And he’s a fan favorite, and the Jets could use some good PR.
