While a settlement remains possible, Braylon Edwards‘ DWI case is currently headed towards pre-trial hearings.
Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger reports Edwards’ next court appearance will be July 22. He was required to be in court on Monday morning, but didn’t show. His attorney said Edwards’ flight from Los Angeles was delayed this morning.
It’s possible Edwards’ teammates will get involved, in an effort to say Edwards wasn’t drunk when he drove them. It’s also possible a plea agreement could be reached.
“It’s possible we’ll work things out before the 22nd,” said Edwards’ attorney Peter Frankel.
It’s hard to say how much Edwards’ free agent stock will be hurt by the issue, if at all. The Jets remain the favorites sign Edwards, whether he asks for the moon or not.
