Patrick Smith/Getty Images(SEATTLE) — Braylon Edwards has signed a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks, sources tell ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The 29-year-old Edwards stands at 6’3″ and could give the Seahawks a big-play threat if healthy.

He tried out for the Seahawks and Miami Dolphins before ultimately inking a one-year contract with Seattle.

The Seahawks are looking for a No.2 receiver to start opposite Doug Baldwin.  Sidney Rice and Golden Tate are also in contention to start for head coach Pete Carroll.

Edwards began his career with the Cleveland Browns but also played for the New York Jets and most recently, the San Francisco 49ers. 

The 49ers released Edwards in December 2011 after he struggled to recover from knee and shoulder injuries.
