RENTON, Wash. -- Giving Braylon Edwards another shot might have seemed like a move of desperation but it may turn out to be a shrewd decision by the Seattle Seahawks.

Through the first two weeks of the preseason, Edwards has been among the Seahawks' most impressive wide receivers. He had a leaping 39-yard touchdown catch in Seattle's preseason opener against Tennessee and has stood out during training camp practices.

Edwards is trying to leave behind a miserable 2011 season in San Francisco during which he was dogged by knee problems and was released after Week 16, missing out on the 49ers' run in the NFC playoffs. He played in just nine games for San Francisco and spent most of the off-season looking for a new home before Seattle signed him on July 31.
