New York releases LB Edds




A.J. Edds, trying to restart an NFL career twice derailed by injuries, was released Saturday by the New York Jets.

A former Greenwood Community High School and Iowa star, Edds was released on the final day of cuts, when teams had to trim down to 53 players.

Signed by New York after a tryout in May, the 6-foot-4, 256-pound linebacker seemed to make a strong case for himself during the preseason. He was the Jets’ leading tackler in the first two exhibition games and was a regular contributor on special teams.
