Seahawks waive WR Braylon Edwards

First reported by Brad Biggs of The Chicago, I can confirm that the Seattle Seahawks waived/injured receiver Braylon Edwards today.

The University of Michigan product had to fight for a spot on the roster during training camp, but emerged as a starter for Seattle in the season opener at Arizona because Golden Tate started the season with a knee issue.

Edwards, 29, played in 10 games for Seattle, finishing with eight catches for 74 yards and a touchdown.

The Seahawks now have five receivers on the active roster in Sidney Rice, Doug Baldwin, Charly Martin, Jermaine Kearse and Tate.

Seattle also has three receivers on the practice squad in Corbin Louks, Lavasier Tuinei and Phil Bates, so it’s possible head coach Pete Carroll could move one of those players up to the active roster to replace Edwards.
