The latest on the Braylon Edwards front is that he won’t be going anywhere in 2009, as John Clayton over at ESPN reports that it now appears unlikely that Edwards will be traded before the start of the season. It’s going to be tough at this point to move Edwards, as the big sticking point according to reports is that wherever he goes, he’s going to want a new deal.
Seems like the deal that was going to send him to the Giants for a 2nd, 5th and a player was the best that the Browns were going to get, and now that the draft has passed, it’ll be tough to take something for him for the 2010 draft and try to explain it to the fans.
Of course everyone thought last season that the Giants deal with the Saints of Jeremy Shockey that died on draft day meant it would never get done, but then it did awhile later in the offseason. In this case though, it just has a vibe to it that Edwards will not be shipped out before the start of the season.
