Searching for veteran leadership at the wide receiver position, the New York Jets have decided to bring back a familiar face, WR Braylon Edwards. Edwards, 30, played in three games for the Jets last season and this will be his third stint with the organization. New York has been looking to bolster the receiving corps this season with an offensive unit that lacks real explosiveness.
New York placed veteran receiver Santonio Holmes on the PUP list on Tuesday while he is recovering from a Lisfranc injury. The deal was announced as a one-year contract without any financial data being released. Edwards started the season in 2012 with the Seattle Seahawks but was claimed off waivers by the Jets after being released.
In their search for another receiver, the Jets also worked out free agents Austin Collie and Laurent Robinson earlier in the week. Both players have had injury issues.
Edwards is expected to report to the Jets camp on Thursday.
