Braylon Edwards Is Needed By New York Jets

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Braylon Edwards is currently a unrestricted free agent with the New York Jets. The Jets have until June, 1 to offer Edwards a tender to prevent  another team from picking him up and signing him, and were fortunate enough to pick up Braylon off the NFL waiver wire last season when the Seattle Seahawks released him. Due to their lack of any real offense on the field, Braylon was a sigh of relief to see him back in a Jets uniform.

As soon as Edwards re-joined the Jets, you could see the chemistry between him and Mark Sanchez never left. If the Jets do resign Edwards, it will allow their offense to continue to grow and prosper and will give Sanchez a dependable and familiar target.

With wide receivers like Jeremy Kerley and Stephen Hill getting a lot of experience last season due to Santonio Holmes injury, the receiving core can be set. As Edwards and Holmes are the No. 1 and 2 options, this will make the passing offense resemble what it looked like in seasons 2009 and 2010.

Edwards  tallied up 904 yards and seven touchdowns in his last full season as a Jet in 2010. This type of production is definitely needed from a passing offense that did not produce any significant numbers last season. Edwards provided great memories for Jet fans with his “teach me how to dougie” dance all over the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots. Just that alone warrants his return in a Jets uniform.

What say you Jets nation, Edwards to resign as a Jet?
