Braylon On DWI: ‘Don’t Know If I’m Embarrassed’

Manish Mehta of the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS reported today that Braylon Edwards apparently didn’t think his arrest for DWI Tuesday morning, “would project the Jets in a negative light.

Today Edwards said of his arrest:

“I don’t understand the black eye that this would put on the organization. Because this isn’t a representation of what this organization is about. .. I don’t see how this could be a black eye for them. More so be a black eye for myself if anything. I’m human. I’m not the first person to make a mistake. It was sad for me (being) in that situation. I don’t know if I would describe it (as) embarrassed.”

Jets Coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday in reaction to Edwards’ arrest, “It’s kind of an embarrassing moment for the organization. We are a disciplined football team. I think our football team has learned our lessons. I think Braylon is a good man.

Jets beat reporter Mehta also noted that Edwards, “appeared flippant during his session with the media and admitted that he wouldn’t contest it if the team decided to deactivate him for the game.

Edwards will not start for the Jets on Sunday against Miami but will suit up for the game. Of Edwards being benched but not deactivated for the game, Ryan said,  “That’s a bigger punishment than you think. That’s it for now.

Mehta noted via Twitter that Jets defensive back Darrelle Revis said of Edwards not starting, but still having a chance to play on Sunday, “It really doesn’t make sense.Read more…

More importantly, Edwards is seen in the photos with his 11-month-old baby son Braylon, Jr., which is a significant step for the Jets wide receiver.

Edwards secretly fathered the child with “America’s Next Top Model” contestant Nik Pace last year. Pace gave birth to Braylon Jr. in August in Georgia.

The NEW YORK POST’s Page Six has the details:

Edwards, who makes about $5 million a year, immediately filed in Atlanta to be recognized as the father — but was shocked when Pace objected and sued for child support in New York.

Pace’s lawyer, Raoul Felder, told Page Six: “Braylon had tried to get the case litigated in Georgia because they are traditionally less generous with child support payments. It’s a cold, calculated act to pay less money. Read more…

Braylon Edwards Charged: Misdemeanor Assault

Braylon Edwards

You can’t exactly say that readers of the CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER were sad that former Browns receiver Braylon Edwards was charged a little while ago with misdemeanor assault. Commenter Stefrusconi, a few minutes after word came down: “ALL CHARGES SHOULD BE DROPPED JUST LIKE THE FOOTBALL.” How rude. But then Browns fans and Mr. Edwards are not on the best of terms.

The charges stem from the infamous LeBron Incident on Oct. 4 at the View Ultralounge & Nightclub in Cleveland, when Edwards allegedly punched entertainment promoter Edward Givens. Somewhere Tom Cable is laughing for the first time in two months.  Read more…

Braylon To Cleveland Fans: ‘No More Messages!’

New on ABC: “Everybody Hates Braylon.” In this week’s episode, disgruntled Cleveland Browns fans are bombarding Braylon Edwards with Twitter and text messages, reminding him that he isn’t exactly their favorite receiver. Braylon is not exactly amused by the abuse, as you can see in one of his replies, below. Where’s that YouTube crying guy when you actually need him?

Browns fans have been piling on since last week, when Edwards was traded to the Jets for, as one Twitter hooligan phrased it, “a flobee and 7 pounds of air.” Read more…

A Braylon Edwards-LeBron James Feud? Awesome

It’s a scenario that would be totally rejected as an “Entourage” spec script, but since this is real life, and Cleveland, it’s totally believable. The Browns’ Braylon Edwards supposedly slugged a friend of LeBron James outside of a nightclub late Sunday night, and now James is sniping back at Edwards via Twitter.

LeBron James, Braylon Edwards

Edward Givens has told police that Edwards assaulted him outside of View nightclub in Cleveland at about 2:30 a.m. this morning. Givens, who said that he went to Lutheran Hospital this morning for a black eye, a cut and a headache, is friends with LeBron. This is what LeBron has to say about it via a sportswriter’s Twitter account: Read more…

Can Braylon Edwards Freshen That Drink For You?

This photo is OK if you’re Charlie Sheen, or you have a bet with Big Enos Burdette that you and the Bandit can get all of this to Atlanta in 28 hours. But if you’re wide receiver and perennial screwup Braylon Edwards, perhaps it isn’t the best PR move of the century to be posing on your Facebook page with this much hooch.

Braylon Edwards

Not only did Edwards lead the league in drops last season, but he also failed his physical and injured himself in a pickup basketball game. And don’t forget the time he injured his foot when a teammate stepped on it because Edwards was running practice routes in his socks. But the bigger issue here, of course, is that Edwards was out drinking with Donte Stallworth on the fateful night of Stallworth’s DUI accident that claimed the life of a pedestrian. But welcome to my basement anyway! How do you like your martini? (Hick!) Read more…
