Braylon Edwards avoids jail time, but not pleased with court decision

Free agent wide receiver Braylon Edwards hasn’t had a great Wednesday.  He found out Santonio Holmes got the big bucks in New York, and had a court date in Cleveland.

Edwards was sentenced to a year of active probation and 100 hours of community service.  That would seem to be a good result considering he could have gone to jail for violating probation, but apparently Edwards wasn’t pleased with the development.

“They’re not too happy about it,” a Cleveland municipal court spokesman said. “I think they wanted him to walk.”

Edwards can serve his punishment remotely, although he has to check in with a parole office once a month.

    Drunk driving is extremely serious. What doesn’t Braylon understand about this?

    The Bears make sense but now I’m starting to think Cincy would be a good spot for Braylon…he’d fit right in.

    Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time (or community service).

    And I didn’t think it was possible to dislike this guy anymore. I stand corrected.

    I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t violate his probation.

    Guess he thought they’d drop the charges…

    Time to grow up a-hole. Try accepting your punishment like a man and not crying like a little baby about it. It could be worse, you could be Jalen Rose. You don’t see him crying about it, do you?

    Bray On is knocking on the door, though.

    “Active probation” means you have to check in with the probation officer ONCE per MONTH? What is lesser probation? Limit of three keggers per week?

    tfb Gaylon now go punch another midget in the face and try to kill someone on the highway after “partying it up”

    Shocking…just another spoiled idiot athlete who doesn’t have to pay for his crimes like the rest of society…and still bitches about it…what a f’ing joke.

    What a punk. Should have thrown him in the can for a couple of months so he’d have a reason to be un-happy.

  19. melikefootball says: Jul 27, 2011 5:22 PM

    Happy to see somone stood up to him and he has to spend some of his time.

    Not pleased with the courts decision? Then how about you not break the law repeatedly you dumb f**k.

    New York essence doesn’t cut it in Cleveland, you prima donna prick.

    How do you do community service on-line? Pick up trash along the side of the information super-highway?

    If he held on to his drinks or car keys the way he (doesn’t) hold on to the football he would avoided a lot of this, By the way, he won;t be checking in with parole officer once a month, because he is not on parole. He is probation, so he will check in with a probation officer once a month. These are two very different things!
