NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – The New York Jets have released wide receiver Braylon Edwards, trimming their roster to the mandatory 75 players.

Edwards was dealing with a leg injury that kept him out of the team’s preseason game against the Giants on Saturday night. Edwards was signed just before training camp began, marking his third tenure with the Jets.

He had been given rest days throughout camp as a precaution, but the Jets appear to have moved on. The team signed veteran receiver Mohamed Massaquoi last week to add depth to the receiving corps.

The 30-year-old Edwards played his first four seasons in Cleveland, and was acquired by the Jets in 2009. He signed with San Francisco as a free agent in 2011, and was claimed late last season off waivers by the Jets from Seattle.
