If Jets receiver Braylon Edwards was ever going to be humbled, today was the day.
Looks like it’s not going to happen.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News described Edwards’ attitude in the locker room Wednesday in one word: “Flippant.”
Edwards refused to answer some questions, and answered others in a manner that made you wonder what planet he was on. Edwards says he didn’t feel like he acted selfishly.
“I don’t understand the black eye that this would put on the organization,” Edwards said.
Edwards also explained that he normally takes a car service, but the dog ate his homework. (Okay, he really said he only was driving because he stayed at the Jets facility late after doing extra work.)
The Jets have chosen not to deactivate Edwards on Sunday night, citing the CBA. But Edwards confirmed Florio’s hunch that the wide receiver would not have fought a deactivation through the union.
Maybe it’s not too late for Woody Johnson to change his mind.
