We thought he was backing down from his comments in response to possible NFL backlash, but that might not have been the case. It turns out those idiots calling the shots just called an idiot shot: claiming Braylon Edwards off waivers.
Edwards confirmed the claim in a tweet from a few minutes ago:
It feels great to be going home. Thanks to all of jet nation that continuously supported me and pushed for me. I'm back and it's go timr
For what it's worth, we actually agree this transitive assessment, because bringing a receiver into the fold so late in the season is extremely difficult - there's little time for him to learn the offense, and Edwards' talent isn't so superior that it can make up for the technical hiccups bound to happen along the way. No, the Jets are getting a receiver that drops passes and just blasted the same management that signed him.
