Braylon Edwards dealt to the New York Jets


Eric Mangini is probably smiling from ear to ear this morning as he has finally rid the Browns of Braylon Edwards. Cleveland traded Braylon Edwards to the Jets early this morning. This comes as no surprise given the circumstances of Edwards squable two nights ago with a local party promoter and good friend of LeBron James.

The Browns tried to trade Edwards before the draft to the Giants but were unable to get what the felt at the time was a fair deal. The Browns are glad to be rid of the former first round pick and troublemaker Edwards.  Reports are the Jets have traded WR Chansi Stuckey, LB Jason Trusnik and two draft picks to the Browns for Edwards.

Trusnik won AFC Special Teams Player of the Week last week and Stuckey is third on the team in receiving with 11 catches for 120 yards and a touchdown.

Edwards once again has struggled this year, with 10 catches for 139 yards in the team’s four games. His only really big season was 2007, when he caught 80 balls for 1,289 yards and 16 touchdowns. He regressed last year to 55 catches, 873 yards and only three scores.

  1. They basically gave Mark Sanchez another weapon…

  2. Reverse lookup says:

    To judge Braylon’s performance on a horrible Cleveland team is unfair. He was a stud coming out of Michigan and will ultimately prove to be a great pickup for the Jets.

  3. The Guru says:

    This is EXACTLY what the Jets needed. Another receiver who can neither get open or catch passes consistently. If you thought he was something before, well… were wrong.

  4. I think Mangini just didn’t want to have to deal with him and his wild behavior. I do think Edwards has a lot of talent and wish him the best on the Jets. I think he has a lot of growing up to do though and am not feeling all that bad about him being traded.

  5. Chris Brown says:

    I’m loving the fact he got picked up godbless..

  6. Amy says:

    Maybe Edwards will do better with the Jets.
