The Other Paper:
Braylon Edwards is always good for a mouthful but when it comes to the New York Jets last season — less is better and just pass the double-strength Listerine.
“First and foremost, nobody sells mouthwash that could wash that taste out of my mouth from . . . last year,” Edwards said Friday. “There was so much BS going on, it made you guys (the media) sick at the end of the day.”
Luckily for Edwards, last season he only played three games for the frustrating 6-10 Jets and only got a sip of the turmoil and not a Big Gulp-sized taste of the team's rancid play.
Edwards said there was so much going on with the Jets that it was a distraction from the goal at hand.
“What’s going on with this guy, what’s going on with this situation?” the receiver said. “Is he in charge of the team, or is he in charge of the team? Whose team is it?”
However, the veteran wide receiver, who joined the Jets late in 2012 and has been a member of the team for less than three days this year, said he can already see a difference.
“That’s what I sense, I sense that everybody wants this organization to be better,” Edwards said. “I want to focus on: what can Braylon do to help the team?”

Cortland, NY Whether fair or not, there is not as much fanfare around the Jets this offseason.

The New York Jets have suspended training camp practice because of severe storms.
