Jets release WR Edwards

The SportsXchange

Wide receiver Braylon Edwards was released by the New York Jets on Monday.

Edwards was signed by the Jets on July 25 for his third stint with the team, but has been unable to fully overcome the knee issues that have plagued him in recent seasons.

Edwards had five receptions for 72 yards in two preseason games, but did not play in Saturday night's third preseason game against the New York Giants.

He had been listed as the backup to starting wide receiver Stephen Hill. Jeremy Kerley is the other starter with Santonio Holmes still working his way back from injury.

With Edwards gone, Clyde Gates, Ben Obomanu and Joseph Collins appear to be the frontrunners for the No. 3 wide receiver spot.
