According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets have claimed wide receiver Braylon Edwards off waivers.
Edwards is back with the team that let him sign with the 49ers last season. What’s really funny is just he just bashed the Jets last week, which likely led to him being released by the Seahawks.
This is just so Jets.

As Braylon Edwards rejoices a reunion with quarterback Mark Sanchez, the wideout's balky hamstring might be a cause for concern leading up to the Jets' Monday Night Showdown against the Tennessee Titans.
