Vikings and Rams in the Mix for Free Agent WR Braylon Edwards

It was reported earlier today that wide receiver Braylon Edwards was shopping his services around to other teams than the New York Jets, and two of those teams were the Vikings and Rams.

With the development of Mike Sims-Walker signing in St. Louis (fantasy sleeper), one has to wonder if Edwards will become Donovan McNabb’s go-to target for the 2011 season in Minnesota.

I have to say, I am not sure of the fit. Edwards has had a solid decline in play since his days with the Browns, and he will likely require a good sized paycheck wherever he signs this offseason. The Vikings have not been shy about over-paying players (Brian Robison, Madieu Williams) so they might just be willing to go after Edwards in somewhat of a desperation move to upgrade their wide receiver group.

    Braylon Edwards is a freak of nature. Standing 6 Foot 3 inches Edwards throws off defenders with his natural physical dominance and has the ability to plow through tacklers (or drags them along for the ride). His ball skills have drastically improved since his last couple years in Cleveland. As a matter of fact, I can’t remember Edwards ever dropping a ball in the last two seasons.

    But those aren’t the reasons NFL teams don’t want Edwards on their team…
    The reason NFL teams don’t want Edwards is because he is unlikeable.
    He is arrogant, and talks too much trash. Case in point below.

    1. Hard Knocks: Edwards talks trash about Santonio Holmes beard..not
    2. Press Conference: Edwards talks trash about Mark Sanchez. Stating Mark Sanchez hasn’t EARNED THE RIGHT to criticize. That’s your QB dude! Doesn’t matter! And even if you do feel that way…never verbalize it!

    3. Twitter: Read Edwards tweets, and you will get a better understanding why coaches and teams look elsewhere. I think Edwards should follow Chris Brown move, and close his Twitter account, especially if when you start tweeting about your boss/management.

    Yes, Edwards also has issues off the field, but I believe Edwards has finally learned his lesson and will probably not have issue with the law in the future. If Edwards could tame the ego, and think before he actually speaks….he might still be a valuable asset.
