Report: Edwards, Jets near deal

The SportsXchange

The New York Jets and wide receiver Braylon Edwards appear close to another marriage.

The Jets are prepared to sign Edwards if he passes a physical, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday. He has recently battled knee problems.

If Edwards does rejoin the Jets, it would be his third stint with the team. Edwards was with the Jets in 2009 and 2010 and again last year when he was claimed off waivers in December after his release by the Seattle Seahawks.

The Jets face uncertainty with its wideouts heading into the 2013 season, particularly with Santonio Holmes' status after Lisfranc surgery up in the air.

The 30-year-old Edwards had 10 receptions for 125 yards in three games after joining the Jets last year and eight catches for 74 yards and one touchdown with the Seahawks.

Edwards' career totals are 359 receptions for 5,522 yards and 40 touchdowns with the Cleveland Browns, Jets, San Francisco 49ers and Seahawks.
