Yikes!  A day after he ripped the Jets and stuck up for his former teammate Mark Sanchez, the Seahawks have released Braylon Edwards (the release isn’t believed to be connected to his tweets).

Braylon did take to Twitter again after getting cut – check out the report from the Associated Press and his tweets after the jump…

According to the AP via ESPN:

Seattle made the moves Tuesday afternoon. Edwards was waived with an injury distinction, but no specific injury was cited. The Seahawks now have just five healthy wide receivers.

Edwards had just eight catches for 74 yards and one touchdown in 10 games.

Carpenter returned from a serious knee injury last season and started seven games for the Seahawks at left guard. But he left early in Sunday’s win over Chicago after experiencing what Pete Carroll called a sharp pain in his surgically repaired knee. Seattle signed offensive lineman Rishaw Johnson from the practice squad.


The Seattle Seahawks have cut wide receiver Braylon Edwards after a season during which he had little impact on the offense and placed starting left guard James Carpenteron the season-ending reserve/non-football illness list.
