The Seattle Seahawks still were hopeful at the time that Edwards would pan out and told the Jets it would take "something significant" to make a trade happen, according to La Canfora. The deal never went down, but the Seahawks might regret that since they waived Edwards on Tuesday, one day after he said some not-so-nice things about the Jets.
"Don't blame (Jets quarterback Mark) Sanchez," Edwards tweeted Monday night. "I played there. Blame the idiots calling shots ... Mark is a beast and will (prove) it when given a proper chance."
Edwards apologized for his words, but the Jets aren't likely to come calling again in this lifetime.
