Not even a week has passed since Braylon Edwards called the Jets' higher-ups "idiots," but the organization is reportedly considering bringing back the embattled wide receiver to boost a depleted receiving corps.

ESPN.com's Adam Schefter reported that the Jets will contemplate the move after the Seattle Seahawks waived him from injured reserve on Monday. The Jets would either claim him off waivers or sign him if he passes through, Schefter reported.

Rookie wide receiver Stephen Hill was the latest Jet receiver to be stricken with the injury bug on Sunday, when he had to leave the team's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars with a knee injury. The Jets also lost star wideout Santonio Holmes and Clyde Gates.

Meanwhile, the Jets suddenly find themselves in the midst of an unexpected shot at a playoff berth. At 6-7, they sit only one game back of both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals for the sixth and final AFC playoff spot.

This makes the addition of another wideout to complement Chaz Schilens and Jeremy Kerley even more imperative. But the pursuit of Edwards comes less than a week after he defended Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez on Twitter:

Edwards subsequently apologized less than 12 hours later:

Edwards has caught only eight passes for 74 yards and a touchdown with Seattle this season.
