As many of you know, there's a guy on Twitter named "Incarcerated Bob," who from time to time has what turns out to be accurate inside information about the Jets.
This time around, Bob claims that the Jets will cut receiver Braylon Edwards before Sunday. Unfortunately, this time Bob is not only incarcerated -- he's also incorrect.
A source with knowledge of the situation tells us that it's "not happening."
It makes sense. By not deactivating Edwards for Sunday's game, the Jets implicitly acknowledge that they need him. And if the notion that they didn't bench him for Sunday because of concerns that they'd be running afoul of the labor deal by disciplining Edwards unilaterally, cutting him after the DUI arrest would fall into the same category -- and it likely would require the Jets to pay the balance of his 2010 salary. (Of course, since he's a vested veteran he'd be entitled to his 15 remaining game checks -- 14 plus the bye week -- anyway.)
