Braylon Edwards will be in the NFC West this season. He just won’t be a member of the Arizona Cardinals.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Edwards will be calling San Francisco home in 2011.
Filed to ESPN: Free agent WR Braylon Edwards and the San Francisco 49ers reached agreement on a 1-year, $3.5 million deal.
Edwards signing with the 49ers ends a week’s worth of speculation that he would become a member of the Cardinals.
While one of their targets is off the market, there are still options available. The Chargers’ Malcom Floyd, the Giants’ Steve Smith and the Jets’ Jericho Cotchery are all still on the market and could fill the Cardinals’ need for a No. 2 wide receiver.
As was the case with Edwards, anyone they bring in will likely have to accept a one or two year deal as the Cardinals are still hoping to use at least part of their remaining cap space on an extension for Larry Fitzgerald.
