He also released a longer statement on his official website:

“I wish the 49ers organization the best of luck during the Playoffs. I will be working hard this off season to strengthen my knee and prepare for the 2012 season. Thanks for your continued support and for being such loyal fans.”

Edwards had managed to record just 15 receptions in nine games with the 49ers this year. Last season he tallied 53 receptions and seven touchdowns for the New York Jets.
