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.
