New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards was placed on probation today after he pleaded no contest in Cleveland Municipal Court to aggravated disorderly conduct in connection with an October incident outside a Cleveland nightclub.
Michael Sangiacomo of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Edwards, who was traded from the Browns to the Jets days after the incident, was also given a suspended 180-day jail sentence and fined $1,000. And he was given a lecture by Cleveland Municipal Judge Michelle Earley.
“Someone who has as much to lose as you should not be standing in front of me,” Earley said to Edwards. “Situations like this are senseless. You have to make better choices.”
Edwards is expected to be at the Jets’ facility later today for team meetings.
