Braylon Edwards waived by Seattle Seahawks

Braylon Edwards called his former bosses in New York a bunch of "idiots" on Monday for their handling of New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez. We wonder what he'll say about his former bosses in Seattle.

The Seahawks waived/injured Edwards on Tuesday in a surprise move. They also placed guard James Carpenter on the reserve/non-football illness list for the remainder of the season.

Edwards wound up with only eight catches for 74 yards and a touchdown on the season. After getting nine targets and five catches in the season opener, Edwards had only four catches since. He last caught a pass in Week 6 against the New England Patriots, although he did play last week against the Chicago Bears.

The "waive/injured" tag likely means that Edwards did not pass a team physical on his way out the building, and the team might reach an injury settlement with him. But this is clearly more of a move about Edwards' ability than injury considering he played last week. The team signed him as depth when Sidney Rice and Doug Baldwin were hurting, but everyone is healthy now. Golden Tate has finally stepped up as a playmaker.

It wouldn't be a surprise if this was the last stop of Edwards' career, seven years after the Cleveland Browns drafted him No. 3 overall out of Michigan.
