Edwards likely to avoid suspension
Posted Jun. 26 at 10:41 PM
It appears the Jets will be without only one of their top three wideouts to start the season this year. Santonio Holmes will miss the first four games, but Braylon Edwards should be available.
That's according to an online report picked up by the New York Post. Edwards was dealt to the Jets last season shortly after an incident at a Cleveland night club, allegedly throwing a punch that could have earned him a suspension under the league's personal conduct policy. But according to the report, he should face no more than a fine after a no-contest plea.
Edwards was an erratic performer with the Jets last year, coming up with some big catches -- and the kind of drops that helped torpedo his career in Cleveland. For at least the first four games of 2010, though, he should be Mark Sanchez's No. 1 target. That could make him worth a late-round pick by owners who want to get off to a fast start with a receiver who won't come at a high cost.
Edwards' season-long prospects aren't as good; when Holmes is back, he'll join the competition for catches with Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery and Dustin Keller.
