Braylon Edwards returning to New York in 2010?
Despite an unimpressive run as a New York Jet, it looks like wide receiver Braylon Edwards may be back with the team next season.
Edwards, who will be a restricted free agent after the season, will be tendered by the Jets with a contract value that will require another team to give up a first and third round draft pick in order to acquire him, according to Bob Glauber of Newsday.
Edwards, a five-year veteran out of Michigan, was traded to the Jets from the Cleveland Browns at the end of October. In nine regular season games with New York this year, the wideout caught just 31 passes for 485 yards with four touchdowns. In two postseason games, Edwards has hauled in four passes for 56 yards with no touchdowns.
Based on those numbers-and the fact that Edwards has only had one big-time season in five years-many NFL teams in need of a wide receiver may feel the price tag is too high for a player who is known to have trouble catching the football.
Edwards busted out in 2007 with the Cleveland Browns when he caught 80 passes for 1,289 yards with 16 touchdowns. He’s only caught 100 passes in 32 regular season games since then.
