On Wednesday, the Jets agreed with Santonio Holmes on a five-year deal reportedly worth $50 million, which Edwards knew was not a good sign for him. He said later that same day that while he wanted to return to the Jets, he was afraid they did not want him.

"I would love to be a Jet but the feeling doesn't seem to be mutual with the management," he wrote on Twitter.

The Jets will reportedly now shift their focus to re-signing cornerback Antonio Cromartie after they missed out in the race for Nnamdi Asomugha, who signed with the Eagles.

Edwards avoided jail time this week in a probation violation hearing in Cleveland Municipal Court. The 28-year-old was given 100 hours of community work service and one year of active probation.

He had pleaded guilty the previous week to a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated and was on inactive probation in Cleveland at the time of his DWI arrest stemming for a fight outside a nightclub with a friend of LeBron James, the New York Post reported.
