Braylon Edwards was acquired in October 2009 to be a big-play wideout, but in his Jets career, Edwards has eclipsed 100 receiving yards in a game only one time. We hear that the team is looking for more ways to get their top wide receiver the ball, as his height and leaping ability create matchup problems against nearly all defensive backs. Edwards is still not quite on the same page as QB Mark Sanchez, as evidenced by the fact he had only one reception in the season-opening loss against a banged-up Ravens secondary. Sanchez was criticized by some in the media for too quickly going to his check-down receivers in the game and not allowing time for Edwards to create some separation deep downfield, having thrown only three times longer than 10 yards out of 21 attempts. Suspended WR Santonio Holmes returns following Week Four to provide the Jets another deep threat, so the time is now for Sanchez and Edwards to build a bond.
