The New York Jets were one of several AFC East teams still searching for answers at wide receiver. But it appears free agent and former Jet Braylon Edwards will not be in their plans.

According to the New York Post, the Jets are satisfied with what they've seen at receiver in organized team activities and minicamps. The paper reports they have ruled out Edwards, because they feel comfortable with receivers Santonio Holmes, rookie Stephen Hill and backups Jeremy Kerley and Chaz Schilens.

Edwards had a solid stint with the Jets in 2009 and 2010. He was a key part of New York's run to back-to-back AFC Championship Games. But injuries derailed Edwards in 2011 with the San Francisco 49ers and now he's looking to catch on with another team.

I watched New York's receivers in minicamp last week and thought Schilens and Kerley performed well in practice. Holmes and Hill, the projected starters, were nursing hamstring injuries. The Jets are tight against the cap and hope their receivers continue their momentum in training camp and the preseason.
