Braylon Edwards: Jets WR Wants to Stay in NY, Says He Is Reasonable
Edwards May Have Taken A Shot At Santonio Holmes
Braylon Edwards does two things real well, drop passes and run his mouth. Edwards defied his usual mode of play by actually catching passes down the stretch of the 2010 season, but he still runs his mouth with the best of them.
Edwards is just one of about 100 free agents the Jets have to try and re-sign once the league year starts. That is a slight exaggeration, but the Jets have a lot of free agents this year.
Edwards has said he will consider less money to re-sign with the Jets, which makes sense because Edwards always wanted to play in a big market like New York, considering Cleveland a backwater town who did not appreciate him.
This coming from a guy born and raised in the State of Michigan.
“It depends on the discount. I’m not asking for the moon. If it’s close, let’s do it,” Edwards said via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.
Edwards also took a shot at Santonio Holmes, noting egos were going to come into play when it became time to sit down and sign contracts.
I am not an Edwards fan, and his sudden ability to catch the ball last year down the stretch most likely will disappear once he inks a new deal. Everyone has seen this drama before where a talented but inconsistent player finds their groove in a contract year only to lose it as soon as he cashes his first check.
Holmes may have an ego as big or bigger than Edwards, but Holmes catches the ball a lot more consistently than Edwards does.
Holmes has more off-field issues than Edwards, but why split hairs?
