Jets claim Braylon Edwards off waivers from Seahawks

The New York Jets officially claimed receiver Braylon Edwards off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks.

After two relatively quiet years with other teams, Braylon Edwards is back with the New York Jets on Tuesday after the team claimed him off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks.

The Jets waived running back Kahlil Bell on Tuesday to make room for Edwards on their roster. Edwards was waived from the Seahawks' injured reserve on Monday and returns to the New York team he played with in 2009 and 2010.

The move comes amid a bit of controversy as well. Just last week, Edwards called those running the Jets "idiots" in regards to the team's dysfunction. The 29 year old later apologized.

On the field, the Jets are in desperate need of wide receivers. They were down to three after the injury to rookie Stephen Hill, who sprained his LCL in last week's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Edwards has eight catches for 74 yards and a touchdown for Seattle this season after a stint with the San Francisco 49ers in 2011. With New York in 2010, Edwards posted 53 catches for 904 yards and seven touchdown.
