NFL Free Agency Rumors 2012: Braylon Edwards Ruled Out By New York Jets

The New York Jets have ruled out bringing back wide receiver Braylon Edwards, Brian Costello of the New York Post reported on Monday.

Costello also reports the Jets are "happy with" their current crop of receivers, highlighted by Santonio Holmes, rookie Stephen Hill, Chaz Schilens and Jeremy Kerley.

Edwards suffered through an injury-plagued 2011 season with the San Francisco 49ers, catching just 15 passes for 181 yards before being waived prior to the team's final regular season game.

The 29-year-old played for the Jets in 2010, when he managed 53 receptions for a team-high 904 yards and seven touchdowns. Rather than re-sign Edwards after his productive season, the Jets decided to sign Holmes to a five-year, $45 million contract.
