The New York Jets have released wide receiver Braylon Edwards, the team announced on Monday. In an attempt to reduce their roster to 75 players before the NFL's deadline to finalize rosters by Tuesday at 4 p.m., the Jets ended Edwards' third tenure with the team.
Edwards saw limited action in the preseason, playing in just two games while catching five passes for 72 yards. He didn't appear in the Jets 24-21 win over the New York Giants on Saturday.
Edwards, an eight-year veteran, has caught 359 passes for 5,522 yards for the Cleveland Browns, Jets, Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers. Edwards and the Jets agreed to a one-year deal in July after the 30-year-old receiver was cut by the Seahawks last season.
