Braylon Edwards


Santonio Holmes, Sidney Rice, Santana Moss, Mike Sims-Walker, Lance Moore, Plaxico Burress, Donte Stallworth, Steve Breaston, Roy Williams, Johnnie Lee Higgins.
Those are just a few of the free agent wide receivers who have re-signed with their current teams or latched on elsewhere in this condensed NFL offseason.
One prominent name not on that list is New York Jets free agent wideout Braylon Edwards.
The Jets signed Burress over the weekend, effectively ending any speculation they might resign Edwards and leaving the 2007 Pro Bowl selection to ponder his future.
The lack of activity is clearly wearing on Edwards, who apparently is now reading Leo Tolstoy to deal with the dead time.
Multiple teams are rumored to be in the mix for Edwards including theArizona Cardinals, Washington Redskins, Tennessee Titans andMinnesota Vikings. But so far, no one has landed the mercurial wideout who will likely demand something close to the five-year, $50 million contract former teammate Santonio Holmes got in New York.
Late last month Edwards pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated after a Sept. 21 arrest in Manhattan.
