NFL news: Jets acquire Braylon Edwards

From Pro Football Talk.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Browns have traded Braylon Edwards to the New York Jets.

The move comes only hours after the receiver whom the Jets allegedly coveted -- Michael Crabtree -- finally signed a contract with the San Francisco 49ers. Though there's no specific evidence that the Jets were waiting to pull the trigger (perhaps not the best choice of words when talking about a New York receiver) on a trade with the Browns until Crabtree's situation was resolved, the circumstantial evidence will cause some to wonder whether Edwards was "Plan B" and Crabtree was "Plan A."

Interesting, to say the least.
