Person familiar with situation says Jets will sign WR Braylon Edwards to 1-year deal

A person familiar with the situation says the New York Jets will bring back wide receiver Braylon Edwards on a one-year deal.

Edwards is expected to sign the contract Thursday morning, marking his third tenure with the Jets, before the team reports for training camp in Cortland. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal wasn't complete and the Jets hadn't announced it.

Edwards took a physical with the team Wednesday, and will help add depth to a thin receiving corps.

The 30-year-old Edwards, who played his first four-plus seasons in Cleveland, was acquired by the Jets in 2009. He signed with San Francisco in 2011, and was claimed off waivers by the Jets from Seattle late last season.
