Seattle Seahawks Add WR Braylon Edwards

This is a bit unexpected, but the Seahawks have signed WR Braylon Edwards. Edwards was with the 49ers last season, and appeared in 9 games, collecting just 15 catches. The former first round pick battled injuries all season, but was a major disappointment after good years in New York and Cleveland.

Edwards was in for a workout with the team a week ago, but the Seahawks chose to sign Antonio Bryant instead.

Edwards will provide some training camp depth at a position that is having difficulty with injuries. Bryant, Jermaine Kearse and Sydney Rice all haven’t practiced yet with the team because of injuries. Expect Edwards to work out at Split End, the position held by Mike Williams that previous 2 seasons.

To make room for Edwards, the Seahawks released kicker Carson Wiggs.

    after watching Durham drop everything yesterday I’m not surprised, other than him & Lockette the recievers outside of Rice are rather redundant… #12thMan I don’t think him nor Bryant will make the team however, I’m hoping it “clicks” for Lockette. I’d rather see a young guy get his shot than either of these two rebuilding their egos…

      from what I’ve seen, Lockette and Tate figure to be big contributors this season. Both seem much improved from what we saw last season. Durham has been a huge disappointment.

    We should’ve signed Burress too & it’d be an idiot hat trick! #12thMan

    Can T.O. be next?? Haven’t seen the workouts but our wideouts must really !@#$

      It not that they are bad, it’s just that a lot of them weren’t healthy enough to stay on the field. This isn’t a bad group of receivers. it’s raw and untested, but there’s some talent there.
