Edwards, who played for New York from 2009-10, was waived by Seattle on Monday. He had two productive seasons with the Jets, developing a rapport with Sanchez in helping New York to consecutive trips to the AFC title game.
With Rex Ryan contemplating last week whether Sanchez would remain the starting quarterback or be replaced by third-stringer Greg McElroy, Edwards wrote on Twitter that people shouldn't blame Sanchez, but should "blame the idiots calling shots." He tweeted an apology the next day, and was reunited with the Jets less than a week later.

AP Source: Youkilis, Yankees Reach One-Year Deal
NEW YORK -- Kevin Youkilis and the Yankees reached a deal Tuesday, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press, returning the hard-nosed All-Star to the AL East and filling New York's immediate need for a third baseman.
The one-year contract for $12 million is pending a physical. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because there was no official announcement.
Youkilis is expected to play third base while Alex Rodriguez recovers from hip surgery. Rodriguez plans to have the surgery in mid-January and could be sidelined until the All-Star break or beyond.
Eric Chavez, A-Rod's backup for most of last season, joined Arizona last week. The Yankees considered several options as a stopgap at third, including Jeff Keppinger and Mark Reynolds, but both accepted deals with other teams.
The Yankees made the offer to Youkilis last week at the baseball winter meetings. The agreement was first reported by Fox Sports.
Youkilis turns 34 in March. He played third base and first base last season for the Boston Red Sox and Chicago White Sox.
US To Announce Next Ryder Cup Captain
The PGA of America is introducing its next Ryder Cup captain during a segment of the "Today" show on Thursday.
Adding to the intrigue of the announcement is whether the PGA of America will stick to its prototype of a former major champion who still plays on the PGA Tour, or whether it will look farther into its past to find its latest captain.
David Toms fits the former category, while there has been strong sentiment for either Tom Watson or Larry Nelson.
Nelson is a three-time major champion with a sterling Ryder Cup record. Watson was captain when the Americans last won in Europe in 1993 at The Belfry. The 2014 Ryder Cup will be played at Gleneagles in Scotland, where Watson won four of his British Open titles.
