49ers Sign Braylon Edwards

Former New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards has signed a one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers.  The Jets may have regressed by signing Plaxico Burress instead of Braylon Edwards.

Braylon Edwards signed a one-year deal with the 49ers worth $3.5 million dollars.  He will join forces with WR Michael Crabtree.  Edwards caught 53 passes for 904 yards and seven touchdowns last season as a member of the Jets.

The Jets opted to sign free agent Plaxico Burress to a one-year, $3 million dollar deal instead of Braylon Edwards.  There is a good chance that the Jets have actually regressed by deciding to do this.  Plaxico Burress recently finished a 20-month prison sentence for illegally carrying a gun into a nightclub.  Burress hasn’t played football for 2 1/2 seasons.

Burress also tweaked his ankle running against air earlier this week.  It’s a minor injury (he’s only expected to be out for a few days) but this could be an ongoing issue.  Burress isn’t going to step onto the football field and automatically become Superman right away.  He’s susceptible to injury.

Burress’ body is going to have to adjust.  Burress turns 34 this month.  Edwards is 28.  People make is sound like the Jets picked up Jerry Rice in his youth and got rid of Ted Ginn.  The Jets picked up a big name.  It remains to be seen if that big name can produce.  It’s not a lock that he’ll even be able to trump Braylon Edwards’ production last season.
