The New York Jets released veteran wide receiver Braylon Edwards on Monday.

The New York Jets released veteran wide receiver Braylon Edwards on Monday. 

This was confirmed by no other than the Jets' official website on August 26, which adds this roster cut trims the Jets' current roster to 75. The move was made in time for the NFL's mandatory cutdown by Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET.

NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal adds Edwards' release was also attributed to an injury-plagued training camp. He was signed on July 24 as a safety measure at wide receiver due to an assortment of injuries at the time. 

Rosenthal notes Edwards, who sustained a leg injury last week in practice, has had some health issues which have limited his productivity over the course of two seasons. During that span, he has managed to catch just 33 passes. 

He was vying for a roster spot which would have marked his third stint with the team. Unfortunately, this could very well be the last time he will be sporting Jets green and white as the team signed another veteran receiver, Mohamed Massaqoui, last week per CBS Sports New York.

According to the Sporting News, the final straw for Edwards is the presence of Santonio Holmes, Stephen Hill, Jeremy Kerley and Clyde Gates in the Jets' receiving corps. 

Just two weeks ago, he expressed confidence about cracking the Jets roster and even told ESPN New York his aim was to "really show these guys I still have it and that I can play at an elite level to help this team win games." 

Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be. 

The highlight of Edwards' career came in 2007 when he was with the Cleveland Browns. That year, he had 1,289 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns when he paired up with former Browns quarterback Derek Anderson. However, Rosenthal points out he has never exceeded 1,000 yards since then. 

The 30-year-old Edwards was the third overall selection of the 2005 NFL Draft out of Michigan. He first played for the Jets in 2009 and then came back in 2012 after spening the 2011 season with the San Francisco 49ers

He has also played for the Seattle Seahawks in his once-promising 10-year NFL career that has seen him amass 5,522 yards on 359 receptions for 40 touchdowns, per ESPN stats.

Michigan Football Expectations for 2014 and Beyond: Curbside Enthusiasm

Sep 16 2014 9:19am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Michigan football continues to be a source of consternation as summer fades to brisk autumn air. Coming off a disheartening shutout in South Bend, the Wolverines lacked luster in the first half against the lowly Miami (Ohio) RedHawks. Yes, Michigan picked up the slack in the second half and managed to beat a team that hasn't won since October 27, 2012, 34-10. Brady Hoke and his fellow spin doctors will tell you the team is improving, that the ...

Notre Dame Football: The Importance of the Irish Secondary Against Michigan

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Michigan has been blaring music this week during practice, trying to prepare for a raucous road environment Saturday night. But it was Notre Dame football that turned up the volume early in the week, aiming to improve its communication in the secondary. After Notre Dame allowed five explosive plays (four passes), three of which Irish head coach Brian Kelly attributed to poor communication, in its season-opening 4 ...

Michigan Football: Why Passing Game Will Evolve in 2014

Jeremy Gallon’s gone. Roy Roundtree and Junior Hemingway are memories, and the era of Braylon Edwards is miles behind Michigan. However, some of the Wolverines’ best days through the air could be around the corner—that is, if Amara Darboh bounces back from foot surgery, Jake Butt rebounds from an ACL tear, Devin Funchess lives up to his Walter Camp Award bidding, Jehu Chesson emerges as a true threat and Freddy Canteen carries over his play from the spring to the fall... And then the ...
