Free agent wide receiver Braylon Edwards has found a new home. Edwards will be leaving New York and heading to the Bay Area. Edwards will be a member of the San Francisco 49ers after signing a one-year deal today.
The 49ers beat out the division rival Arizona Cardinals and Minnesota Vikings for Edwards’ services. This is the second big signing in the past few hours for the 49ers. Earlier this evening they stole Donte Whitner out of the Cincinnati Bengals grasp at the last second.
Whether it be Alex Smith or rookie Colin Kaepernick behind center, they will have a handful of weapons at their disposal with Edwards, Michael Crabtree, Vernon Davis and Frank Gore.
