With Jets receiver Santonio Holmes still plagued by foot problems and with the rest of the team's receiving corps mostly inexperienced, the team is bringing back an old retread to see if he can instill some magic for New York's offense.

That would be Braylon Edwards -- who, according to multiple reports, has signed a one-year deal with the Jets.

Edwards, assuming he's healthy, provides an immediate upgrade for an offense that either will be run by Mark Sanchez or Geno Smith. If Holmes is out for an extended period of time, the top Jets receivers would have been Stephen Hill, Jeremy Kerley or Clyde Gates.

You might have forgotten, but Edwards actually did play three games in New York last year, totaling 10 catches, after he caught a combined 23 passes in 2011 and 2012 when he was with the 49ers and Seahawks.

His last decent season came in 2010 when he recorded 53 catches for 904 yards and seven touchdowns for New York.

The one thing I'm sure Edwards is hoping: that the Jets aren't just making another idiotic move.
