    I would love to have him back...he would be good talent for a great price.

    Who knows maybe it would be the Hill and Edwards show, since I have no faith in Holmes anymore.

    Worse case is we release him before week one.

    Exactly Holmes is a walking time bomb, Braylon Edwards comes to play.
    Cant figure what Rex and Tanne are thinking here.

    Holmes is no angel, but Edwards has his problems as well. His number of arrests is greater than 1,000 yard seasons in his career. He's been on 3 teams in the past three seasons. He's got a Diva rep and earned it. Alot of Jet fans have a hardon for him, but he's little more than a good #2 with a big list of baggage following him around. We seem more than willing to let Hill and Schillens fight it our for the deep threat spot on our team.

    As for tebow beating the jets, I would say he beat ten on one play, and the broncos defense beat the jets the rest of the game. Tebow has a certain skill set, that may or may not help our offense, but what really pisses me off about him is that people keep acting as if he was amazing. If Sanchez was on the broncos last year they would have done much much better.

    I never disputed that a deep threat is important, I know it is. What I'm saying is don't make the mistake of thinking that braylon edwards is a deep threat any longer. I think Stephen Hill was a great draft selection, and actually yes, big strong receivers are important for us as well, especially in a run heavy offense. Bottom line is that we took care of what we need, and Braylon edwards isn't a player that will help us. He lost his edge, and I don't know how that could be any more obvious.

    Edwards is not I repeat NOT re- signing with the Jets. The guy was a major head case when he had 2 good knees.

    They are thinking that Braylon Edwards us not worth having on the roster for the following (already stated) reasons.

    1. He physically is not up to NFL standards. I don't know how it can be any simpler than that.

    2. He has had multiple legal issues that kept him from playing in games and helping his team.

    3. They had Braylon for 2 whole years. We paid Plaxico Burress twice the amount Braylon got, so obviously they knew last year he wasn't worth a tiny contract. His tenure with the 49ers did nothing but show that Tannenbaum knew what he was doing, since Braylon accomplished approximately dick.

    Now what didn't you understand?

    I actually do like Braylon Edwards. He was a very fun player to watch and he helped the jets, I absolutely remember the catch he made to set up the winning field goal vs the colts that day, very epic, and that backflip will go down in history. I am just a realist about his situation, and the Jets' situation. And what exactly would you say "I told you so" for? If it's about Holmes' issues I have never disputed them, and if it's about a deep threat, I agree that it is important, just that Braylon isn't the answer there.

    Braylon was good when we had him. Past tense.

    He just got replaced a "thousand fold" this year on the roster. Take a "look"

    I don't think Braylon is healthy. That's the only explanation I can think of for the apparent lack of interest in him from all 32 teams.

    I think once we drafted Hill that ended the hopes of bringing him back.

    I still dont get it...WHy not give the guy a look (I dont know if they have behind closed doors or spoken to him). The rational behind this is

    1) Hill is a RAW rookie (I think he will be a good one though)
    2) Chaz has never stayed healthy for a season.
    3) JK is a slot reciever
    4) Turner....exactly
    5) Riley....see above

    It's not like we have the depth here with Hill and Chaz being the question marks they are. To me this seems like the FO has made their decision and is moving forward. Personally, I'm ok with this but I dont want this to turn into the OL situation of last year. One injury can really hurt this group.

    Jets had every chance in the world to resign Edwards instead they let him walk and signed Burress. No one was kicking in Braylon's door to sign him so he settled on the 9ers,,,I think they were the only team to show interest. I liked Braylon when he was here but wish him well. The guy was a good player for us but has lots of baggage and as far as I know is still rehabbing an injury.

    I will ask the question again, does anybody know the procedure he had on the knee...all I keep hearng is "knee Surgery" but nothing specific... This coupled with his DWI's could be the reason why he is still on the market. A healthy Braylon would no doubt be picked up by somone as he is more talented (when healthy) then every reciever on our roster, IMO

    I remember reading something about a month ago that he wouldn't be healthy to start practicing until late summer. Jets probably didn't want to wait around forever to see if he could even be an option so they drafted his replacement.

    Seems to me there are other issues with Braylon that the coaching staff and/or front office does not want to chance. He played hard for the Jets and was successful but then the DUI. I think he is one more mistake form being suspended from the league and they may not feel he can stay out of trouble. Or his Knee injury is really really bad.

    You put Braylon on way too high of a pedestal.
