NFL Rumors: Braylon Edwards could be cut in favor of Mohamed Massaquoi

Times are tough in the Big Apple as a pair of former Cleveland Browns wide receivers could be vying for one spot on the New York Jets’ 53-man roster. The New York Daily News reports that veteran, and former first-round pick Braylon Edwards could be on the outside looking in after New York opted to pick up the well-traveled former second-round pick of Eric Mangini, Mohamed Massaquoi.

Edwards hasn’t practiced in the past four days, has played later in preseason games than expected, and has a leg injury, according to Jets head coach Rex Ryan.

Ryan also added that the newly signed Massaquoi reminds him of former New York receiver, and NC State record holder, Jerricho Cotchery. This, naturally, serves as large praise for a player who managed just 118 receptions over the course of four seasons in Cleveland and was recently released by the receiving-deficient Jacksonville Jaguars just two months after signing a multi-year contract.
