Earlier today the Jets placed Santonio Holmes on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list and there has been a lot of speculation about the team resigning Braylon Edwards. That rumor seems to be coming true.
Free-agent WR Braylon Edwards plans to sign a one-year deal with Jets, per ESPN source. He soon will be a Jet.

This is a low risk move that provides the Jets with much needed help at wide receiver. With Holmes not on the field the Jets depth chart, before resigning Edwards, looked like this:
- Stephen Hill
- Jeremy Kerley
- Clyde Gates
Adding Braylon to the mix provides an immediate upgrade at a position that needs an upgrade. This gives the Jets insurance as they wait for Holmes to return and some of the young wideouts to emerge.
Jets fans are sounding off on the return of Braylon Edwards in our forums.
