Without many receiving options, Edwards and his familiarity with the team made the signing an easy choice. The plan is for Edwards to be in training camp on Thursday morning to reunite once again with the Jets.
The best part of this? The move once again pairs Edwards with tight end Kellen Winslow, Jr., who was signed by the Jets in June. As Browns fans certainly know, the two were teammates in Cleveland from 2005 to 2008, culminating in a 10-6 season in 2007, which is still the best record the team has posted since 1999.
But wait, it gets better: the Browns will play the Jets at MetLife Stadium in Week 16. It should be a matchup with an interesting subplot, should the Browns not be petering to another forgettable season and both Edwards and Winslow manage to stay on the Jets’ roster.
