The New York Jets acquired receiver Braylon Edwards from the Cleveland Browns yesterday for WR Chansi Stuckey, LB Jason Trusnik and a couple of draft picks. The Jets are obviously hoping Edwards will improve their passing game, despite his history of dropping passes. The Jets have also said that they will go after a RB that cannot run in order to improve their ground game.
"It's like reverse psychology," said Jets head coach Rex Ryan. "If defenses think our guys can't catch, they'll leave them open. If defenses think our backs can't run, they may relax. We hope to catch our opponents on their heels."
No word yet on where the Jets will find this back that cannot run, but sources close to the situation say the Jets are scouring nursing homes and assisted living facilities in the tri-state area.
