Jets claim WR Braylon Edwards off waivers from Seahawks

The Jets are bringing back wide receiver Braylon Edwards, less than a week after he bashed the organization in support of quarterback Mark Sanchez.

New York was awarded Edwards off waivers from Seattle on Tuesday.

Edwards, who played for New York from 2009-10, was waived by Seattle on Monday. He had two productive seasons with the Jets, developing a good rapport with Sanchez in helping New York to consecutive trips to the AFC title game.

With Rex Ryan contemplating last week whether Sanchez would remain the starting quarterback or be replaced by third-stringer Greg McElroy, Edwards wrote on Twitter that people shouldn't blame Sanchez, but should "blame the idiots calling shots." He tweeted an apology the next day, and was reunited with the Jets less than a week later.
