Braylon Edwards regularly lures Alex Smith back onto the field for some extra work, a few more throws to make sure they’re clicking and on cue. Same goes for study sessions in the film room.

They do it after practice, even on days off. Sunday the 49ers kick of the season at home against the Seattle Seahawks.

In the short time since Edwards joined the San Francisco 49ers, he has shown a commitment to his new team in a much-needed second chance out West with a fellow Michigan man calling the shots: Jim Harbaugh.

Edwards hopes to develop the best possible chemistry with Smith so he can return to the dynamic play-making receiver he has been in the past.

He recently switched back to his old No. 17 jersey after wearing Terrell Owens’ No. 81 during camp.

While Edwards might not start Sunday’s opener against Seattle, he should have a big role.
