Wide receivers Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards, two former first-round picks with off-field issues the Jets have acquired via trades the last two off-seasons, combined for 105 receptions, 1,650 yards and 13 touchdowns during the 2010 regular season. Both are free agents this off-season, with Edwards guaranteed to hit the unrestricted free agent market.
Edwards hopes to return to Gang Green, Jenny Vrentas of The Star-Ledger reported this weekend.
The Jets are unlikely to be able to afford both for the long-term, and extended a “First- and Third-Round” restricted free agent tender to Holmes prior to the lockout. Moss could be a short-term threat in the vertical passing game, as well as in the red zone.
Moss, 34, caught a career-low 28 passes for 393 yards with five touchdowns for the Patriots, Vikings, and Titans last season.
