NEW YORK (WFAN) — Braylon Edwards had an up-and-down 2010 season in New York. He was arrested and charged with DWI in September and later came within one game of the Super Bowl.
All that considered, the wide receiver told WXYT radio’s Mike Stone this week that he “wouldn’t mind ending up back with the Jets.”
“I think we have a good chemistry and a good rapport and we’re building on something,” he said. “I’m tired of things changing. With Cleveland it was always changing and even to get to the Jets it was ever changing. But now I see us having something and developing something and I would like to be a part of it.
“If it doesn’t go that way it’s football, it’s life, and things happen. Just a good situation. Just a situation where I don’t have to start from scratch like the Buffalo Bills or something.”
Though the club couldn’t quite deliver on Rex Ryan’s promises, Edwards said his coach really is “a great guy to play for.”
“He’s very confident when he believes in something. Always has the utmost respect and belief in his guys,” said Edwards. “We’re always playing for him and giving him everything we have.
“He’s one of those guys, an old school coach with an old school spirit, but he has a bit of the new school because he’s very talkative, boastful, and confident. A lot of times that comes off the wrong way, but we as players know what he means by it so it doesn’t bother us.”
From Braylon’s happy tenure to Carmelo Anthony singing New York City’s praises Thursday on “Letterman,” it seems the Big Apple is still the place to make your mark in pro sports.
“New York experience was good,” he said. “To come back with everything going on last year, all the pressure and expectations put on us, for us to almost deliver, and I know almost isn’t good enough, but we had a great run at it. It was fun, and it was a heck of a team and organization to be a part of for the past two years.”
