Down and Distance:
Who would have thought that a week after bashing your former boss, you’d get your job right back as if nothing ever happened?
Well, WR Braylon Edwards may soon find out.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the New York Jets are seriously considering bringing back the former Jet. Edwards, who last week bashed the Jets organization while defending QB Mark Sanchez, was waived by the Seattle Seahawks today and the Jets could very well pick up the receiver as his services are much needed.

The Jets have been without WR Santonio Holmes for some time, and recently learned that rookie wideout Stephen Hill will miss the remainder of the season with a sprained LCL. That leaves them with Chaz Schillens and Jeremy Kerley as the only two receivers that started the season with the team.
The team is fighting for a final wild card spot in the AFC playoffs, and with a few should-be wins over the next few weeks the Jets may finish with a surprising 9-7 record, one that may make them playoff eligible.
Rex Ryan was asked Monday what he thought about bringing Edwards back into the fold.
“You guys know what I’ve always said about Braylon in the past, so you know how I feel about him,” Ryan said. “But right now, I think we’ll just focus on the guys we have.”
While that’s not a ringing endorsement, if the Jets are serious about the playoffs, they’ll need some receiver help.
Braylon earlier bashed the team, calling the shot-callers “idiots” while praising former teammate Mark Sanchez. He later apologized to the team, after the Seahawks informed him he’d be waived.
“I would like to apologize to the Jets family and my fans for my emotional outburst. Mark is a friend and former teammate, who I wholeheartedly support. Nonetheless, I have disrespected and insulted an administration that I have the utmost respect for,” he wrote via Twitter.
Edwards spent a few seasons away from the team, one with the 49ers where he was a non factor, and one with the Seahawks where he has been relatively quiet with eight receptions for 74 yards and a score.
He would be considered an upgrade for the options the Jets currently have on the roster, and he could very well end up with Gang Green once again.

BEST OF MAXIM
You thought the expression was “Misery loves company.” Well apparently, idiocy does, too, because the Jets have claimed Braylon Edwards off of waivers from the Seattle Seahawks. Either the Jets’ front office pays no attention to social media (yeah, right) or they think that Edwards has spent his off-time being retooled a-la Steve Austin into a better, faster, stronger receiver...

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.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, free agent wide receiver Braylon Edwards could end up signing with the New York Jets, who’ve been depleted at the wide receiver position all season.

This is just so Jets.

Braylon Edwards was pretty good in 2010, and so was Mark Sanchez. The two have pretty much stunk since. Edwards and Sanchez, who connected on 62 passes, eight touchdowns and more than 40 first downs in the New York Jets' 2010 campaign, were reunited this week after an odd sequence of events."We have a good chemistry together," Sanchez said Tuesday, via the Star-Ledger...
