Defensive back Nmandi Asomugha may be off the free agent market and Randy Moss may have announced his retirement but that doesn’t mean the hunt for free agents isn’t still heating up and among remaining players in search of a home is Braylon Edwards who will be leaving the New York Jets as the teams finances run dry.
Speculation that Edwards would be removed from the roster was concluded over the weekend when the team chose to sign Plaxico Burress in place of the 2007 Pro Bowler.
In the mix for Edwards are the Arizona Cardinals, Washington Redskins, Minnesota Vikings and Tennessee Titans, although those teams must decide if paying the wideout close to $50 million for a five-year deal, the same type of cash his former teammate Santonio Holmes recently received in New York.
While Edwards will likely find a home Randy Moss is retiring after thirteen seasons in the league, according to his agent Joel Segal:
“After weighing his options and contemplating offers, he’s decided to retire.”
Moss ends his career with 954 caught passes, 14,858 yards and 153 touchdowns while playing with four teams over his 13 seasons.
After New England signed Chad Ochocinco rumors began to circulate that Moss may retire, having shown no interest in any other teams, while his locker room tantrums and slower play in recent years raised questions about interest in his veteran status.
Moss could very likely pull a Brett Favre type move if the right offer comes around and with a lack of wide receiving free agents that very well could happen in the coming weeks.
Where do you think Edwards and possibly Moss should end up?
