Braylon Edwards says the Jets don’t want him

Braylon Edwards AP

Braylon Edwards appears to be on the way out in New York, writing on Twitter today that he doesn’t think the Jets want him.

“I would love to be a Jet but the feeling doesn’t seem to be mutual with the management.” He later deleted his tweet, but Jenny Vrentas of the Star-Ledger was among the reporters who had already spotted it. (Note: Once something has been published online, it never really disappears.)

All indications are that the Jets made Santonio Holmes their top priority, and after signing Holmes, they won’t spend the kind of money it would take to sign Edwards as well. So we can expect him to test the free agent market.

Edwards had more to say on Twitter, having a laugh about getting sentenced to probation and community service for drunk driving.

“All these court appearances I should have practiced law,” Edwards tweeted. “Lol quick joke to lighten up my mood, bare with me the storm will be over shortly.”

Edwards then pleaded for some team to step up and make him an offer “so we can get this thing moving forward.”

For Edwards, moving forward will apparently mean moving away from the Jets.

    We’ll be happy to have you buddy. Just don’t drop the ball.

    It’s because he went to Michigan…

  3. eaglesfootballfan says: Jul 27, 2011 7:11 PM

    Braylon Edwards should be worrying about that DUI.

  4. pacificamjr says: Jul 27, 2011 7:12 PM

    did he wear another stupid a$$ bright shirt to court today? has this a$$ clown ever heard of acting/speaking/dressing in a humble manner?

    braylon will go to an awful team and be awful

  5. tdk24 says: Jul 27, 2011 7:12 PM

    Raiders could sure use you. Come on over!

  6. oscojoe says: Jul 27, 2011 7:13 PM

    Hey Braylon; this is your wake up call; teams want talented receivers that are not Diva’s. Where ever you end up playing, it won’t be for #1 receiver money!

    Have fun being a Panther in North Carolina

  8. djax10isthebomb says: Jul 27, 2011 7:13 PM

    “I should of practiced law”

    No, just stop acting like a dumb ass and breaking the law. How hard could it possibly be, millionaire?

  9. kwalk4780 says: Jul 27, 2011 7:13 PM

    no kidding.

  10. cured76 says: Jul 27, 2011 7:13 PM

    Smart move by the Jets to cut this clown loose. He’s over-rated, anyway.

  11. rcali says: Jul 27, 2011 7:14 PM

    Court appearances for drunk driving is always a knee slapper.

  12. coleman121280 says: Jul 27, 2011 7:15 PM

    GABRONI.

  13. AlanSaysYo says: Jul 27, 2011 7:15 PM

    Braylon Edwards finally says something that isn’t stupid.

  14. daburgher says: Jul 27, 2011 7:16 PM

    This guy is all thumbs

  15. herlies says: Jul 27, 2011 7:17 PM

    Well, they already paid Holmes elite WR money. Not much room left for another overrated WR like Edwards.

  16. edmazeing1 says: Jul 27, 2011 7:17 PM

    Then leave man 31 other teams!!!

  17. plundergrunge says: Jul 27, 2011 7:17 PM

    Da Bears.

  18. thetechnocrat says: Jul 27, 2011 7:17 PM

    like i said
    he put the turd in turd watch

    am i alone in thinking he gets a 1 year deal?

  19. thereisalwaysnextyear says: Jul 27, 2011 7:18 PM

    Oh lord please don’t let the Skins sign him…

  20. hobartbaker says: Jul 27, 2011 7:18 PM

    After encouraging his followers to “bare with me”, Bray On was promptly charged with enticing minors into lewd and unlawful acts.

  21. onebadace says: Jul 27, 2011 7:18 PM

    Here’s where teams need to pounce if they are starvng for wide receiver help.

    Panthers, Cardinals, 49ers, Seahawks (if they don’t get Rice), Vikings (if they lose Rice), Bears, and Chiefs. I might have left some out, but you get the point.

  22. londonbengal says: Jul 27, 2011 7:18 PM

    JUST IN……

    The Jets apparently were willing to offer Edwards a new deal, but were afraid he might drop it……..

  23. flavordave says: Jul 27, 2011 7:18 PM

    “bare with me the storm will be over shortly.”

    So will your career.

  24. ctattles says: Jul 27, 2011 7:18 PM

    Randy Moss would be a way better pick up for the Jets.

    Moss on a go route is unstoppable in single coverage.

    BOW!

  25. offsideburns says: Jul 27, 2011 7:19 PM

    i bet if you chucked a beer deep he’d catch it

  26. jermely says: Jul 27, 2011 7:20 PM

    No wonder no team is jumping at the chance to sign him. He’s not acting very mature and acting like DWI is nothing and he’ll probably do it again.

  27. xxflydjxx18 says: Jul 27, 2011 7:22 PM

    A quick joke dud have been if they had thrown his ass in jail

  28. hawkeye6 says: Jul 27, 2011 7:25 PM

    He’s one parking ticket away from jail time. He wants big $$, and no one wants to commit to that.

    Braylon, you’re in a tough spot.

  29. steelers4385 says: Jul 27, 2011 7:25 PM

    Looks like bralyon is “dropping” to his knees and begging for someone to pick him up. Good thing they “dropped” all serious chargers on his dui.

  30. jimr10 says: Jul 27, 2011 7:26 PM

    Edwards reminds me of Maxwell House coffee …….good to the last drop.

  31. siggtacular says: Jul 27, 2011 7:27 PM

    Ravens make a play. This guy or Sidney Rice.

  32. cowboysfan18 says: Jul 27, 2011 7:28 PM

    It will be hard for him to sign anywhere…you have to be able to hold on to the pen long enough to sign your name.

  33. blmonroe12 says: Jul 27, 2011 7:30 PM

    Some people just don’t get that they create 90% of their own problems. Clearly Braylon doesn’t get it.

  34. bambam1982 says: Jul 27, 2011 7:30 PM

    Great. The 49ers can definitely use him. He would fit great.

  35. Nikhil Balakumar says: Jul 27, 2011 7:33 PM

    boo hoo, cant stand whiny overated receivers

  36. reallionnaire says: Jul 27, 2011 7:33 PM

    always crying…stay’s in trouble!
    overpaid in my opinion…..pack your bags..

  37. tfbuckfutter says: Jul 27, 2011 7:36 PM

    I just don’t get how this guy is considered a top-tier player.

    The dude had ONE big year. ONE.

    He’s basically Chris Chambers.

  38. bucks12965 says: Jul 27, 2011 7:38 PM

    Wow, Braylon you’re a funny guy! I never realized how funny DUIs are.

    All those people who’ve lost friends & family members to drunk drivers just need to lighten up.

  39. citiciti says: Jul 27, 2011 7:39 PM

    Its because you played for Michigan.

  40. chemfootball says: Jul 27, 2011 7:40 PM

    While the Jets were able to sign Santonio Holmes and are seemingly involved in negotiations with Nnamdi Asomugha, I believe the real story is all the players that they are going to lose. The offense will not be as good minus Braylon Edwards, Brad Smith and Damien Woody. Smith, by the way, is also a great special teams player along with Steve Weatherford who is also a free agent.

    On defense some of their free agents are Antonio Cromartie, Shaun Ellis, Trevor Pryce, Jason Taylor, Eric Smith, Brodney Pool and James Ihedigbo, all of whom were contributors. Add to that the retirement of Kris Jenkins who might not have played much at all the past two seasons but leaves them with only one player at the essential position that is nose tackle.

  41. steelcity09 says: Jul 27, 2011 7:43 PM

    They dont want you because you cant catch.

    Your lazy.

    and you get DUI’s.

    I must admit though you had me fooled after that big year in Cleveland. I had high hopes for you. Now you are an epic fail.

    Maybe the Skins will sign you to add you to the rest of their overpaid scrub receivers.

  42. firstroyal says: Jul 27, 2011 7:44 PM

    I am always confused with Jets news. Yesterday Sanchez wants to rework his contract to keep all his recievers followed by its the key to a super bowl.

    Now Edwards can’t catch a cold.

    Not sure which one it is

  43. nomoreseasontix says: Jul 27, 2011 7:46 PM

    “Bare” with me if I doubt he will get the kind of offers he’s expecting.
    2nd or 3rd receiver somewhere. I’m not even sure he could be the #1 with the Raiders.

  44. pacash80 says: Jul 27, 2011 7:46 PM

    Prima donna, DUI, violated probation, drops more passes than Terrell Owens.

    Who wouldn’t want you, Braylon?

  45. yajas says: Jul 27, 2011 7:48 PM

    The storm is never over with Braylon.

  46. jetsarestacked says: Jul 27, 2011 8:06 PM

    hope braylon comes back. he had a lot of big plays for the jets last season. my two favorite were against the pats. 1) catching a td pass over butler in week two and then doing the dougie in his face. 2) dragging mccourty and merriweather along with him into endzone in the jets/playoffs

  47. oldmon3y says: Jul 27, 2011 8:14 PM

    I love how everyone comments trying to poke fun at Braylon Edwards dropping the ball, yes he had a history of it in Cleveland, but you should probably look again, last year he was the most surehanded Jets receiver, a WHOLE 1 dropped pass…… all season…. get your facts straight

  48. jetsarestacked says: Jul 27, 2011 8:21 PM

    “On defense some of their free agents are Antonio Cromartie, Shaun Ellis, Trevor Pryce, Jason Taylor, Eric Smith, Brodney Pool and James Ihedigbo, all of whom were contributors. Add to that the retirement of Kris Jenkins who might not have played much at all the past two seasons but leaves them with only one player at the essential position that is nose tackle.”

    of that group i hope ellis, smith, ihedigbo and pool come back. nose tackle wont be a problem since devito and pouha can both play it. also, the jets drafted a nose tackle and ropati pitoitua is coming back from his injury. we have plenty of beef up front. pool leaving would be the biggest loss imo.

  49. mrlynch33 says: Jul 27, 2011 8:30 PM

    Step up Niners!!!

  50. cornellsteelers says: Jul 27, 2011 8:53 PM

    Prediction: Braylon signs with the Ravens and Ray Rice doesn’t talk about his DUIs.

  51. cotts1 says: Jul 27, 2011 8:55 PM

    Who is Braylon Edwards?

  52. nyjetsmaniac says: Jul 27, 2011 9:04 PM

    For all the Braylon Edwards bashing …The guy DROPPED ONE BALL LAST YEAR …Get a CLUE ….

  53. melikefootball says: Jul 27, 2011 9:15 PM

    Making jokes about DUI????? Where is God-del now….this talk as if he is being picked on…then The Jets don’t want him….maybe he needs to take a good long look in the mirror.

  54. dennis2488 says: Jul 27, 2011 9:30 PM

    wow if the jets dont even want his baggage is any team going to want him? well, i mean besides the raiders.

  55. playlikeajet says: Jul 27, 2011 11:29 PM

    I think your great Edwards and hope there’s a way to get you back.

  56. jetfuel21 says: Jul 28, 2011 10:27 AM

    Hopefully the Jets find a way to bring him back. He is an awesome 2nd receiver and a great compliment to holmes. He made some BIG catches last year. Go get him back Rex!
