Found August 01, 2012 on Sports Blog Net:
Braylon Edwards has finally found a home in the Emerald City as he has reportedly signed a one year deal with the Seattle Seahawks this morning. While his signing is certainly not as impactful as it would have been a few years ago, it does create a ripple effect around the league. Let’s take a closer look at the players whose values could be affected based on the signing: Braylon Edwards WR SEA Edwards is assured of nothing in Seattle and will have to earn a roster spot with a strong training camp. That being said, he certainly has the talent to do just that. In his eight year career, Edwards has posted 341 catches for 5,323 yards and 39 touchdowns. Unfortunately, his magical 2007 season accounted for the bulk of those totals as he recorded 80 catches for 1,289 yards and 16 touchdowns with Derek Anderson and the Browns in that season alone. His career since 2007 has been plagued by drops, lapses in concentration and inconsistencies. After bouncing around to the Jets and 49ers, Edwards will get another shot on a team that could use another wideout after cutting ties with Mike Williams earlier in the month. Don’t expect much. At this point in his career, he is what he is – an inconsistent and often times unreliable deep threat. While he finds himself in a decent situation with the Seahawks, it’s hard to get too excited and think he’s going to be cracking dynasty lineups any time soon without a major change in his focus, confidence and concentration ability. Seattle Receivers It’s never great when another receiver is added to the stable. While Sidney Rice is penciled in as a starter if healthy (and that’s a huge “if”), the Edwards signing isn’t great for the likes of Golden Tate, Ben Obomanu or the upstart youngster Ricardo Lockette. Edwards has the talent to be in the thick of the battle to win a starting job and his signing is going to make it tougher on the rest of the group. That being said, none of these players should be moved down your dynasty rankings too much. Seattle Quarterbacks Having another talented receiver is never a bad thing, but these guys need to focus on beating each other more than anything else. While Matt Flynn is still expected to win the job, Tarvaris Jackson is still in the mix, as is young rookie Russell Wilson, whom the coaches seem to be falling in love with. Dolphins Receivers Good news for Chad Ochocinco, Davone Bess, Brian Hartline and the rest of the crew in Miami as Edwards has landed in Seattle instead of signing with the Dolphins. The Dolphins receiving corps is arguably a lot worse off than Seattle’s and it’s not a great sign for Edwards that he didn’t get a contract there. Whoever is playing quarterback in Miami is going to have a long season, that’s for sure. Summary At first glance, the Edwards signing isn’t exactly huge news. However, it could result in some value changes over the Summer if he can regain some of his old form. Keep it here at DLF and we’ll surely keep you posted.
