08:02 AM ET 05.05 | Braylon Edwards doesn't sound like a guy chasing the biggest contract. Edwards left little doubt Wednesday that he is willing to be flexible to remain with the Jets when free agency opens. Edwards, who will be an unrestricted free agent regardless of which rules are in place after the lockout, hasn't ruled out the possibility of giving Rex Ryan & Co. a discount to remain with Gang Green. Edwards, 28, said he would be amenable to signing with the Jets if Gang Green's offer was as much as $1 million per year less than competing offers. "It depends on what the discount is," Edwards said after the third day of the Jets West passing camp organized by Mark Sanchez. "I'm not aiming for the moon. I'm in a certain ballpark. If it's close, then let's do it. ... This is where I want to be."

He must really want to come back if he's offering a discount.

From J-E-T-S...

"We'll get back to Braylon as soon as we are allowed to get back to Braylon..."

A Butterfingers coupon? Outstanding! Use before July 1st 2011. He might be effed if this CBA stuff isn't cleared up by then.

He should offer to be paid by the catch. He'll be the most economical receiver in the league.

$100,000 per catch, he'll make like $500,000 to $600,000 a year.

They should deduct money for every drop in his next contract.

I like Edwards. Everyone just likes to pick on him because they are jealous.

And because they can't pull off a backflip like he can.

Braylon likes the Jets 'cause it's the only place he isn't the most dysfunctional player on the team. He actually fits in for once.

His drops are more memorable than his catches.

May 5, 2011  08:32 AM ET

The jets are a cheap team.

Braylon knows his value has dropped. He better accept what ever offer the J.E.T.S. give.

Agreed. Or either he is second guessing his production to the team.

Right thread, AND the right comment.

He's the first wide receiver to use Groupon.
