The Jets haven't shied away from making aggressive plays in free agency thus far. They signed Santonio Holmes on Wednesday morning to the tune of $50 million over five years and are reportedly going hard after Nnamdi Asomugha as well.
Unfortunately, they don't seem to interested in wide receiver Braylon Edwards. At least that's according to Braylon himself anyway.
"I would love to be a Jet but the feeling doesn’t seem to be mutual with the management," Edwards wrote in a tweet Wednesday.
Edwards has since deleted the tweet (you could argue it's harmless, but, yeah, probably not the smartest move) and later added that he "Will always love jets nation no matter what happens."
Braylon then brought a little humor to his Twitter account ([sic]'s may apply):
"On another note whatever team wants B easy step to the fore front so we can get this thing moving forward. "will work for touchdowns" lol," Edwards tweeted.
The wideout also made some jokes about his trip to the courthouse on Wednesday and his avoiding a prison sentence for DUI.
Edwards was the 30th-ranked player on Pete Prisco's Top-50 free-agent list, but he's also now one of two unsigned wide receivers, along with the Giants' Steve Smith) on that list.
He'll certainly find a market somewhere, but it doesn't appear to be with Gang Green.
