Seattle waives wide receiver Braylon Edwards
The Seattle Seahawks have cut wide receiver Braylon Edwards
after a season during which he had little impact on the offense and
placed starting left guard James Carpenter on the season-ending
reserve/non-football illness list.
Seattle made the moves Tuesday afternoon. Edwards was waived
with an injury distinction, but no specific injury was cited. The
Seahawks now have just five healthy wide receivers.
Edwards had just eight catches for 74 yards and one touchdown in
Carpenter returned from a serious knee injury last season and
started seven games for the Seahawks at left guard. But he left
early in Sunday’s win over Chicago after experiencing what Pete
Carroll called a sharp pain in his surgically repaired knee.
