New York Jets reportedly considering Braylon Edwards

Perhaps Braylon Edwards was right. Maybe the New York Jets' front office really isn't that bright.

One week after Edwards called the Jets' decision-makers a bunch of "idiots," the New York Post and ESPN reported Monday that the team is thinking about adding the wide receiver to its roster. Reports also suggested Sunday that the Jets considered acquiring Edwards via trade earlier in the season.

Edwards was waived Monday by the Seattle Seahawks, and the Jets could claim him or sign him after he clears waivers Tuesday. With an injury to rookie Stephen Hill, the Jets are very thin at wide receiver. Reserve Clyde Gates also is suffering from a concussion.

"You guys know what I've always said about Braylon in the past, so you know how I feel about him," Jets coach Rex Ryan said Monday when asked about the possibility of acquiring Edwards. "But right now, I think we'll just focus on the guys we have."

Signing Edwards speaks to the Jets' revived playoff hopes. They are only one game out of a wild-card spot in the AFC. Even though Edwards' best days are behind him, desperate times could create desperate measures for the Jets.
