Remember last week, when Braylon Edwards said some nasty things about the New York Jets' management when he took to Twitter to defend Mark Sanchez? I believe he referred to those "calling the shots" as "idiots." Surely, the Jets wouldn't want anything to do with a guy like that.
Braylon Edwards, who is currently a useless member of the Seattle Seahwaks, used to be semi-relevant when he played for the New York Jets. As such, Edwards has strong opinions about the current state of the Jets franchise, specifically the struggles of Mark "Buttfumble" Sanchez.
Former Jets and Browns wide receiver Braylon Edwards is a free agent. Edwards is 6' 3", spry, a leaper. He has 39 touchdowns in six seasons, which ties him for 23rd among active players. And he's one of the youngest in that bunch.
Remember that DWI charge, which Braylon Edwards wasn't punished for because the Jets and the league say they can't do anything until he has his day in court? It's been pushed back, again. The Manhattan District Attorney works slower than Roger Goodell.
Prosecutors say they're discussing a possible plea deal in Edwards's DWI case, but his next court appearance isn't until January after his lawyer requested more time to file motions. Maybe he'll be suspended for some two-a-days in August. [Star-Ledger]
In sports, everyone is a winner-some people just win better than others. Like alleged drunk driver Braylon Edwards, whose blood alcohol content was twice the legal limit not a week before he scored the touchdown that put the Jets ahead for good.

After being stopped by police for driving erratically and blowing twice the legal limit, chinbeard enthusiast Braylon Edwards was charged with DWI Tuesday. The Jets, who have a car service for partying players, were astonished someone actually drove in Manhattan. [Daily News]
The Cleveland Browns are not the worst team in the NFL. Yet, front office chaos, locker room drama, and a lot of lousy football have made them exemplars of what it means to be a terrible sports franchise.
Adam Schefter woke up early today and jumped on two stories that will disappoint fans of ridiculous melodrama. Now that the Braylon Edwards saga is over in Cleveland and Michael Crabtree has ended his holdout, what will we talk about?
Well, the Browns' season just got a whole lot better. Their "star" wide receiver was accused of punching a man last night and the victim says it's all because Braylon Edwards isn't as popular as LeBron James.
Sure, social media brings you closer to the fans ... but that just makes it easier for them to tell you that you suck at your job. [Waiting For Next Year]
Does Braylon Edwards care more about his image than he does about catching footballs? Because lately it seems that he's not doing a very good job of protecting either one.
