ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Monday’s edition of NFL Live that the Bengals have expressed interest in free agent receiver Braylon Edwards.

Schefter also reported that the Jets have interest, although theirs was previously known.

The 29-year-old Edwards’ market never developed during the heart of free agency because he was rehabbing knee and shoulder injuries at the time. Edwards recently revealed that he’s currently in Miami “getting healthy working out.”

The Bengals used third- and fifth-round picks on receivers, drafting Mohamed Sanu out of Rutgers and Marvin Jones from Cal. Edwards would give Cincinnati a veteran option to compete for snaps opposite A.J. Green.
