124 Posted January 21, 2010 Share Posted January 21, 2010 Edwards happy to stay on one-year tender Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on January 21, 2010 8:34 AM ET As Florio wrote Wednesday night, Braylon Edwards is one of the unlucky players that will be a restricted free agent this offseason barring a new collective bargaining agreement. A report surfaced Wednesday from Newsday that the Jets plan to place the highest tender on Edwards, meaning a team would have to give up first- and third-round picks if it wanted Edwards. And a big contract. No team is going to give up that much for the talented but erratic receiver, so Edwards should stay in Gotham. Braylon is on board. "I hadn't heard anything about it, but if that's something they're definitely doing, I'm excited," Edwards said. "I love playing here and I love the atmosphere around here. . . . If that's what's going on, I would be extremely happy and proud to be a Jet for years to come." (Well, it's just one year.) That approach is a little easier for Edwards to adopt because he's already pocketed one huge contract. Players with smaller career earnings may not embrace the realities of the uncapped world so enthusiastically. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
