49ers Sign WR Braylon Edwards

Posted by Scott Kegley on August 4, 2011 – 5:21 PM

The San Francisco 49ers  announced they have signed WR Braylon Edwards to a one-year deal.

A Pro Bowl selection in 2007, Edwards (6-3, 214) has played in 90 games (84 starts), registering 326 receptions for 5,142 yards and 39 touchdowns. He entered the league as the third overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns. After being traded by the Browns to the New York Jets in October of 2009, he went on to play in 28 games (26 starts) and tallied 88 receptions for 1,445 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Edwards played for the Browns from 2005-2009, appearing in 62 games (58 starts) and notching 238 receptions for 3,697 yards and 28 touchdowns. In 2007, he broke the Browns single-season franchise records for receiving yards (1,289) and touchdown receptions (16). Edwards was selected to the Pro Bowl and was named second-team All-Pro for his performance.

A 28-year old native of Detroit, MI, Edwards starred collegiately at Michigan, where he was a two-time All-Big 10 selection (2003-04) and holds school records for career receptions (252), receiving yards (3,451), receiving touchdowns (39) and 100-yard receiving games (17). In 2004, Edwards was named Big 10 Player of the Year and the recipient of the Fred Biletnikoff Award, given to the nation’s top receiver. He also earned the Bo Schembechler Award, given to Michigan’s Most Valuable Player.

  10. By TP on Aug 4, 2011 | Reply

    Jed, Trent, thank you. Now can we continue with the signings please? A few more key players would be NICE!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hell yes! Finally! We have made some moves but nothing like chasing a playmaker. I hope he comes here with a purpose and dominates. maybe this will light a fire under crabtree, he better bring it, now this takes some attention off him. Would like to see another weapon of significance on either side of the ball. Happy niner fan, best news all off season

  21. By Steve on Aug 4, 2011 | Reply

    I like who they’ve been adding so far. Some solid veterans on offense and defense. We’ll have to see if everyone gels together well but statistically they’ve got some good solid and reliable players.

    Mays for asante? crabtree for asante? CAN WE JUST MAKE A MOVE FOR ASANTE?

  23. By Corey on Aug 4, 2011 | Reply

    YESSS!!!!! Finaly the 49ers made a good move. Now go and get Moss!!

  24. By Scotty on Aug 4, 2011 | Reply

    Nice signing finally a note worthy pickup. As for getting another weapon, moss is retiring Owens is not the same player and i highly doubt he would sign with us. Why not Malcolm Floyd or Steve smith (New York Giants)?

  25. By timefora6thring on Aug 4, 2011 | Reply

    looks like niners will sign safety Donte Whitner from buffalo. Now we can trade Taylor Mayes to Philly for Sammuels. We are also in the running for Malcom Floyd but TO for one year might not be to bad..

  26. By ninerfan4life on Aug 4, 2011 | Reply

    Finally an impact move… there is a GOD. Defensively, we still need a corner and some line help. Like the addition of Whitner and I think Mays deserves at least one more year as a backup and special teamer to prove his worth. Offensibely, would love to have Owens and/or Flyod. With some weapons and stability at OC … MAYBE Smith can be a solid QB.

  27. By AJ on Aug 4, 2011 | Reply

    Asante isn’t really a fit for the scheme we want to run. Hes not a physical press corner. Though he would definetly be an upgrade. And we’d be lucky to get a 5th round pick for Mays, let alone a pro bowl corner. Getting rid of Crabtree would also be idiotic. Good thing you aren’t a GM.

    Finally a move that is good. I am just wondering how we are going to plug the middle on defense. Losing Franklin was a terrible mistake.

  34. By Bryce Sidney on Aug 4, 2011 | Reply

    Oh yeah and Grab OSI!!!!!!! Give up Mays and a 2nd round pic for him the Giants will do it. Justin Smith, Issac Sopoaga, Ray Mcdonald or Jean-Francios, and Osi from left to right on our D-line…. MMMmmmmmmm so beautiful!

  35. By nick meza on Aug 4, 2011 | Reply

    ok, im not gonna get to excited!!! YET, lets make our move now trade Tayler Mayss and a second or third round pick for Asante Samuels!!!!!

    This is the best FA signing we have done so far this season. Things are starting to look up again this season. I am expecting more TD this season than the last 2 season combined

    How come everyone forgets about Josh Morgan? He’s been a pretty damn good receiver so far. Only reason he aint a big name is cause Crabtree’s divaness over shadows him.

    Don’t worry about Alex, He wil do great things in Jim’s system. you Alex haters are forgetting that the kid was 22 when drafted, he had 5 , 6 Different Offensive Cordinators…. do you know how many Petyon Mannaing and Tom Brady has had combined over thier entire carrers… 3!!… Not to mention that the team Alex was drafted too was one of the worst NFL teams in the history of the league. Alex has taken everybody’s abuse and keeps coming back, He got Balls of Granite and our players see that and they will follow him… As I’m saying is support Alex this season from start to finish and you’ll see what he can do when he has a team and a coaching staff around him. GO ALEX!! – GO NINERS!!

    …YES after crabtree gets better o is solid (for whatever reason i trust ginn to do well in the west coast offense (if your not big u gotta be fast and i semi-trust alex smith to be more confident and better now that harbaughs coach) and i have faith in our d, its time to dominate!!!!!

    Honestly I think this season the Niners will be competive but how Harbough coaches it will be until next season.. or the year after forsure! it took him a couple of years to turn it around in Stanford.. Adding Ansante would be great though!!

    It wasn’t just the fact HE(ALEX) had to learn a new OFFENSE every year but his WHOLE TEAM had to learn a new OFFENSE. EVERY YEAR.!!!And coach Sing wouldn’t know what a good offense is but wanted to call the plays.Well, maybe limit the offense so that the opposition could call our plays or at least know whats coming.. But when a team doesn’t do well the QB gets most of the blame…! The only problem is it’s happen’g again..Lets get the preseason started so we can hopefully see some progress by the end of it…GOOD LUCK TEAM!

    If the 9ers would even think about re-signing T.O…I would have to think about being a 9er fan although at this point there is no way I can’t be. It is in my blood. I am happy they are finally signing some people that can help us this season. We need to contend for the playoffs this year and as “Baca” keeps saying…take that major step in 2012. CK will be starting by the end of the year!

    good pick up.

    with other teams still needing to make cuts to get under the Cap and the Niners already being under the Cap- and Cornerbacks like Kelvin Hayden- still on the market- the Niners could pick up a couple more guys. Hopefully it will be another CB and a young DE.

  111. By Tom on Aug 4, 2011 | Reply

    No Moss no Owens. THey are trying to build a solid team with solid players. We have the players to move the ball ie Gore, Davis, Edwards, Crabtree and Morgan. There is only one ball. Owens and Moss are head cases. Remember Moss walking off the field in a playoff game before the game ended. If its not about him he doesnt care. Leave him retired. Owens is hurt and not a good locker room player.
    Alex will be okay. This is going to be the best receiving corps Alex has had along with the best O line Smith and Gore have had.
    Think positive 49er faithful.

    Lovelovelovelovelovelovelovelovelove this pick up! Alex Smith is going to have a great season and I really admire how well he has carried himself throughout his tough career. He in my opinion is one of the toughest players in the league, and people are gonna be eating their words by the time hes done with this season. Im loving these comments about Asante, though Im not really big on the whole trading away Mays thing. I would love to see this team find a way to aquire Asante though!

    Don’t write off Alex just yet. Remember Harbaugh is a former NFL quarterback. The Niners will play to Alex’s strength, more shotgun. Caspernack looks like the real deal.

    Great pick up!!! i like it…Edwards gives us a big target down field, which will free up a lot less double coverage for V. Davis and D. Walker. U add Tipping hands WR Crabtree and T. Ginn and things are finally starting to look GOOD for this Poor offense..Sky is the limit, all they need is a good coach, like J.H, to show them how its done…

    Cant see how the niners not making playoffs last year is Alex’ fault, i recall a couple games that were potentially fumbled away late, couple int’s entirely not his fault, think its wrong to point fingers at smith. Who else was out there this “offseason” anyway, kolb was the prize and hes fairly unproven, smart move by not throwing ton of money at that. The last few days SF has made some NICE aquisitions, if this team plays 60 minutes of football come sundays we’ll be right there come december you can count on it!!

    HELL NO 2 TO Why Do you wanna Bring Somebody Back from The Past and Also that is a Locker Room Cancer???? Dealing With Michael ” DIVA” Crabtree Is enough but we will see how Braylon Edawards will Pan Out Offense Is Not The Issues We Need to Sign More Defensive Players we to make up for what we lost Via Free Agency.

    G0 49ERS!!!!!!!!

    Thats what I’ve been saying, big #1 receiver! Hopefully Harbough can keep him in check…..

    I’m not sure how it will work out, but I have to be optimistic. Go Edwards! Go 49ers!

    Why would you trade Taylor MAys? He has great upsizes. First he runs a 4.3 and he is head bussa. He has only played one year. Asante Samuel would be a nice addition but Osi nawwww! He not even practicing now because he says his hip is hurting. We don’t need another receiver. I think Ronald Johnson from USC is a sleeper and he is going to surprise people. We need another speed receiver and we need to sign Dashon Goldson. I think he is better then Williams. Our defense stayed on the field to much last year and team took advantage of that.

    GREEEAAATT PICKUP!!! Love it. If the line gives Alex some protection, mark my words, he will be an impact with our great receivers just watch! And dont forget Vernon Davis out there!!!

    Crabtree, Davis, Gore, and now Edwards. If Alex Smith can somehow turn his career around, and if our shuffled offensive line can create a brick wall for our team we might be able to improve. I still have faith in our defense and special teams, now it’s time for the offense to make a statement.

    Hello Mr. Edwards, Welcome to the 49ers FAITHFUL facilities. We really need you this year. Stay focused and be careful in the Bay Area cuz we party heck of hard patna. LOL. Its bad broads out this way too. ;-)

    Congratulation 49ers!
    You have to have players who are extraordinary.All smarts will be go out of window if you have nobody to play with.To have Edwards, is smart decision.But 49ers need more same caliber player,one or to more ,!If 49ers will do that,than they spend wisely money,because it will be improve performance every player on rooster. And all good thing come to them easily.

    bunch of finger pointing turds, SF lost in every way possible last year at every position in every critical situation, those of you who watched the games and understand more than just big names and big plays would know that.

    Time for Harbaugh to talk about move MAYS to linebacker than talk about MAYS being shopping. Let me explain u why, there TOP LB in NFL was former safety in college days. Urlacher is one of best MLB in nfl. Thomas Davis was also change to OLB after they draft them. I know Mays have elite speed between 4.29 to 4.3 with his size of 6’4 and i really cant imagine what he would do on field as OLB maybe at strong side matched up with tight end mostly of the time and surprise them with some blitz!

    Since we didnt bring Lawson and LaBoy back so I really want see him being in our depth of OLB for us! We also already pencil Reggie smith and Donte Whiter as starter for safety

    I think this is a good signing, we need a possession received. I just hope he does well on thefootball field and off!! I hope we sign a good veteran QB.

    Ideal Pick-Up

    this addition will help Crabtree of all people- now he does not have to rush to get back. it gives him the opportunity to HEAL UP.

    this receiving core will be at the top of the league- Smith will acclimate well under Harbaugh and have his best year to date.

    I go away for a few days on vacation and YEP—-All looks good to me. And yes, there’s obviously a PLAN and sitting back and letting unfold sure has happened. It’s time to just relax and get excited!!!!!!!!!!

    And oh, for those of us (me included) who think Alex Smith is good, which includes Coach Harbaugh, nice pick up and way to help out your QB and Team. Nice job, love it!

    we should trade crabtree for a more productive wideout or any other player that isnt a diva

    I’m glad to see Braylon Edwards on the roster, but I wouldn’t bet on this helping Alex Smith. He already had great players at the WR, TE, and RB positions and still couldn’t get it done. The hope really is that Harbaugh can mold Mr. Smith into a respectable QB.

    Alex Smith is the worst thing to happen to the 49ers. He is a coach Killer and coach Harbough will be his next victim. Alex Smith sucks. We need a quarterback. Who’s idea was it to look at culpepper when McNabb was available how stupid here we go again. There was no good signs from the offense during preseason game #1. They sucked and needed to stay on the field longer. Who cares of Alex Smith get hurt he throws the other team the ball anyway lol

    I do believe all of the concepts you have offered in your post. They’re very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for beginners. May you please prolong them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
