On Christmas Eve 2011, Braylon Edwards and his 49ers teammates went into Seattle and held off the Seahawks, improving their record to 12-3, and enhancing their odds at getting a first round playoff bye.
Three days after the game, in which he had one catch for nine yards in the second quarter, Edwards was cut by the 49ers.
It was a meek end to an equally meek run for one of the NFL’s resident bad boys. Having only 15 catches for 181 yards and no touchdowns in the nine games he managed to play,
Edwards was deemed expendable on the verge of the 49ers’ first playoff run in nearly a decade.
Curiously, the day he was cut, fellow receivers Ted Ginn Jr. and Kyle Williams were battling injuries. That left Michael Crabtree as the only healthy receiver of note.
That San Francisco nearly made it to the Super Bowl without him, their run ended by special teams miscues and not his absence, should speak to the diminished value that Edwards has today.
Edwards, for those that have forgot...

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:
Life is good. Players are hard at work on the practice fields, live Seahawks football will return to our televisions in a matter of days, the weather is perfect for barbecuing meat to perfection over hot coals1, and the training camp news from the VMAC is both encouraging and abundant. Maybe even too abundant – with reports coming in daily from the Seattle Times, the Tacoma...
