Assuming he's healthy, the Jets are interested in bringing back wide receiver Braylon Edwards at the right price, a source told The New York Daily News on Wednesday. Edwards was a central part of the Jets' aerial attack during the 2009 and 2010 seasons, when they made back-to-back AFC Championship Game appearances.

Edwards, who signed a one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers in 2011 and was released before the start of the playoffs, caught 11 touchdown passes in 28 games with the Jets. The source told the Daily News it's not clear at this point if Edwards is interested in a reunion with Rex Ryan & Co.

The Jets could face a hole at receiver, as Plaxico Burress already appears to have one foot out the door. Burress, who's set to become a free agent in March, told a Philadelphia radio station on Tuesday that he would love to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles and team up with Michael Vick.
