NFL Rumor: Braylon Edwards Reported Target For Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals have made several big moves including Sunday's signing of TE Todd Heap. They added a solid linebacker in Stewart Bradley and a dependable and durable offensive lineman in Daryn Colledge. But it seems the Cards aren't done yet. The team that entered free agency with almost $39 million to spend is now rumored to be making a play for wide receiver Braylon Edwards according to XTRA 910's Mike Jurecki.

The player I'm talking abt is Braylon Edwards, still working on the deal, it could fall through... Stay tuned!

Edwards, 27, would add another big-play threat alongside Larry Fitzgerald and Todd Heap in a passing attack that would give Kevin Kolb plenty of weapons. 

As the report says, the deal's not done yet but even before Sunday's Heap news and the Edwards rumor, Larry Fitzgerald was already pleased with the moves his team has made. And with Fitz on the final year of his deal keeping him happy is considered to be extremely important. 

"This is the most active I've ever seen the team in free agency and I think that's really exciting," Fitz said after Saturday's practice. "We addressed a couple of needs. We lost some guys in free agency and obviously a starting cornerback but I think the team is doing a good job addressing the needs that we have. We're going to continue to make acquisitions, that's what they say."

In his five-year NFL career, Edwards has amassed 5,142 receiving yards in 90 games. He played for the NY Jets last season after playing the prior four years in Cleveland.
