Braylon Edwards to Arizona? Jay Feely hopes so

Braylon Edwards went to Michigan and played for the Jets.

Jay Feely is now an Arizona Cardinal. Could the same be said for Edwards soon?

“I’d love to see it, I really would,” Feely told Sports 620 KTAR’s Dave Burns and John Gambadoro.

Feely said teaming Edwards with Larry Fitzgerald, Chansi Stuckey and Todd Heap would create a dynamic offense.

“I think getting that number two guy,” he said, “if we can get him, and if the finances work…”

And that’s one of the big ifs. Edwards, who had 53 catches for 904 yards and seven touchdowns last year, is supposedly looking for a long-term deal. The Cardinals, on the other hand, would likely want to sign him for just one season — two at most.

But there is little doubt he could help the Cardinals, which is why Feely said he and some teammates are trying to convince the receiver to head to the desert. Feely, though, says Edwards has not responded to his text messages.

“I know that Kerry [Rhodes] has, and I know Larry’s texted him as well so obviously we’re trying to convince him that he should come here.”
