The Jets have released veteran free agent wide receiver Braylon Edwards.
The release of Edwards, who re-signed with the team on July 25, reduces the roster to 75 players in advance of the NFL's mandatory cutdown by Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET.
Edwards came to us for his third tour of duty just before the start of training camp. He played in our first two preseason games and had five catches for 72 yards. He didn't play in the overtime win over the Giants on Saturday night.
In 2010-11 and for the last three games last season combined, he played in 31 games and had 98 catches for 1,570 yards (16.0-yard avg.) and 11 touchdowns for the Green & White. In his eight NFL seasons, the wideout who always wore uniform No. 17 caught 359 passes for 5,522 yards (15.4 avg.) and 40 TDs.
