Braylon Edwards is back.
The New York Jets and the wide receiver have agreed to a one-year deal, making this his third go-round with the Jets. Tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. had led the lobbying effort for Edwards, tweeting Monday: “#BringBraylonBack.”
Edwards, 30, took a physical Wednesday and adds depth at WR, with Santonio Holmes starting training camp on the active-physically unable to perform list because of a foot injury he suffered last season.
Edwards helped lead the Jets to the AFC championship game twice and signed with the San Francisco 49ers in 2011. He has not been able to replicate the success he had with the Jets, though, and they claimed him off waivers from Seattle late last season.
