Braylon Edwards has another brush with the law

Free-agent receiver Braylon Edwards, not far removed from pleading guilty to DUI and having his probation in Cleveland for an assault charge extended, nearly got himself into another jam in Michigan early Monday.

According to FOX 2 in Detroit, two people in Edwards’ entourage were arrested after allegedly assaulting employees at a Birmingham bar.

Per the report, Edwards’ friends got into an argument with the employees.  The dispute made its way into the kitchen, and one employee was “sliced with a knife.”  The wound required 14 stitches to close.  Another employee allegedly was attacked with a fork.  (Alas, the Placesetting Trifecta was not completed, possibly because Braylon dropped the spoon.)

Edwards reportedly posted the following on Twitter at about the same time:  “Damn. Get ya knuckles ready” and “Don’t fight if.  You don’t know how.”

Curiously, Edwards recently posted the following message:  “Yo…Lost my phone last night someone sent tweets.  Deleted them and changed my password.  Sorry for the mishap hopefully never happens again!”  (We’d like to think that, if someone found Edwards’ phone and realized they had access to his Twitter page, they would have been a lot more creative than “Damn. Get ya knuckles ready” and “Don’t fight if.  You don’t know how.”)

Edwards wasn’t arrested and he faces no charges.  However, the fact that he was present when the incident went down possibly could become an issue regarding his probation in Cleveland.

It also could take any remaining air out of the market for Edwards’ services.

    I will never understand……..KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT and your nose clean. That’s all you have to do to make MILLIONS OF DOLLARS playing a game.

    Lol what an idiot, c’mon dude use your brain

    might not be the sharpest tool in the shed.

  5. bowlhounds says: Aug 1, 2011 10:28 PM

    Maybe Edwards want to start catching passes for Paul “wrecking” crew and the “mean machine”.

  6. nmunderdog says: Aug 1, 2011 10:30 PM

    What an idiot! Buyer beware!

    When is he ever going to learn?

    No Guaranteed Millions$ coming now.

    Be ready for incentive lading contract for 1 year.

    Why do players like this with such great potential and oppurtunity to make such big money . . . blow it on stupid stuff like this.

    I miss the good old days when there were role model football players i.e Jerry Rice, Walter Payton, etc. Those were REAL players who conducted themselves like ADULTS on and off the field.

  9. jeepin08 says: Aug 1, 2011 10:32 PM

    You can take the playa outa da hood. But ya cant take da hood outa da playa.

  10. thegrey7 says: Aug 1, 2011 10:33 PM

    … and his value just went down a little more.

  11. realitypolice says: Aug 1, 2011 10:34 PM

    Unless the people he was with were convicted felons, this shouldn’t become an issue with his probation.

    Most probation officers won’t violate you for being with someone who gets into trouble if you weren’t involved unless they were convicted felons.

    That being said, Braylon Edwards is proving to be a very stupid human being. I would have to be extremely desperate as a GM to consider this guy.

    On another note, I am having a hard time remembering what life was like before twitter.

  12. bbb82 says: Aug 1, 2011 10:34 PM

    Apparently they too could not handle his “New York Essence.”

  13. gdeli says: Aug 1, 2011 10:34 PM

    sir, put down the spoon…ha

  14. jjrs89 says: Aug 1, 2011 10:35 PM

    Is this guy going to sign with the raiders of the bengels?

  15. ny82jy says: Aug 1, 2011 10:35 PM

    He played good for the jets but im glad hes gone. Too much trouble for what he brings to the field.

  16. tjacks7 says: Aug 1, 2011 10:36 PM

    why would you put a period after if?

  17. rc33 says: Aug 1, 2011 10:36 PM

    Great timing.
    Not that anyone questioned where this clowns head was at prior to or anything.

  18. ny82jy says: Aug 1, 2011 10:36 PM

    I love the pic of the knife and fork by the way haha.

  19. ilduce24 says: Aug 1, 2011 10:38 PM

    Wow, I am so glad the Jets didn’t re-sign him…not only was he a total baby when the Jets didn’t make him an offer with his whining on Twitter…now he’s stupid enough to “drunk tweet” things linking him to the altercation and uses his wonderful pathological lying skills to claim his phone was stolen when those tweets were sent…

    This guy is not a diva, he’s a freaking ticking time bomb….good luck to any team that takes a chance on this guy…

  20. tdprog1 says: Aug 1, 2011 10:38 PM

    This is when Braylon comes out and says, “They hate me because I went to Michigan.”

  21. beeroncos says: Aug 1, 2011 10:39 PM

    If intelligence were baseball, dumbass would be south of the Mendoza.

  22. oldbrowndawg says: Aug 1, 2011 10:40 PM

    This one was a royal pain in the ass all his time in Cleveland and even the diva-loving Jets couldn’t stomach him. I just can’t picture this dude in Arizona. He’s skating real close to the Cedric Benson, Pacman Jones edge of the ice rink.

  23. chobes68 says: Aug 1, 2011 10:40 PM

    Man, the old ‘my Twitter account was hacked’, with a side of , ‘deleted them and changed my password’.

    The pathetic part is this guy is well spoken, and obviously talented. I’m hoping no one offers him a deal, he doesn’t deserve it. However, someone will bite.

  24. mrclearview says: Aug 1, 2011 10:40 PM

    I wonder if he jumps when he throws a punch? Like he jumps to catch every pass thrown to him. What a tool.

  25. 4512dawg4512 says: Aug 1, 2011 10:40 PM

    When Cleveland drafted that idiot he said, “sometimes when I’m going to bed at night I think to myself, Jerry Rice is probably working out right now, so I get out of bed and do push ups and crunches”.
    Sometimes when I’m going to bed at night I think, whats Braylon Edwards doing right now? Then I grab my posse and go to a night club and beat the hell out of someone and get a DUI on the way home. And some time during the night I make sure I drop something

  26. hobartbaker says: Aug 1, 2011 10:40 PM

    The fork finally fled with a spoon while another occupant of the kitchen escaped by jumping over the moon.

  27. claymath52 says: Aug 1, 2011 10:44 PM

    Well I guess that makes him just about ready to sign with the Vikings.

  28. eaglejim88 says: Aug 1, 2011 10:45 PM

    Wow, this guy never suprises me with how stupid he can be…

  29. canetic says: Aug 1, 2011 10:45 PM

    Braylon Edwards is a big fat liar.

  30. roxtar10 says: Aug 1, 2011 10:46 PM

    It looks like Braylon logs in here. Seems one person gave thumbs down to the clear comments about what an absolute waste this guy is. Although, it is believable that he dropped his cell phone…

  31. losunderdogs says: Aug 1, 2011 10:48 PM

    some people will NEVER learn & this bum is still wondering why nobody has signed him what an idiot

  32. youboettcha says: Aug 1, 2011 10:50 PM

    I know it’s politically incorrect to call someone retarded, but…

  33. flavordave says: Aug 1, 2011 10:50 PM

    Who gets in a fight then Twitters
    about what’s next?

  34. xmgmx says: Aug 1, 2011 10:51 PM

    WHAT. A. LOSER!

  35. brasho says: Aug 1, 2011 10:51 PM

    Wow, what a freaking idiot! Why is it that most of the smart players in the NFL don’t have Twitter accounts while the countless morons have accounts and tweet like crazy?

    I think Edwards just cost himself a couple million.

    Get ya lips ready, Braylon, cuz if you wanna contract ya’d betta pucker up and start kissing some ass!

  36. brownieelfrulz says: Aug 1, 2011 10:54 PM

    He lost his phone? He must of dropped it “in between the lines” in the parking lot! Honestly, can one guy really be this much of an arrogant, over-hyped waste of talent?

  37. tlaw21 says: Aug 1, 2011 10:56 PM

    He’s gonna be lucky to get a couple mil now if that…..Funny he’s talkin about his hands since he drops any ball that’s away from his body cuz he can’t snag nothin and needs his body as backup so he can “hold” the ball the ball instead of actually catching it

  38. davikes says: Aug 1, 2011 10:59 PM

    That was the world’s most expensive tweet. Brandon Marshall, please give Braylon a call. He needs some insight.

    Browns fans didn’t hate him because he went to Michigan, but they sure brought his college up after realizing what a douche has was.

    The only tragedy here is that this fine human being isn’t under contract with the Jets right now.

  43. dave1961 says: Aug 1, 2011 11:11 PM

    Braylon is now saying Michigan hates him because he’s from Michigan….

  44. pacificamjr says: Aug 1, 2011 11:13 PM

    besides all his other baggage, Braylon is simply not a very good WR

  45. bennyd720 says: Aug 1, 2011 11:17 PM

    Another employee allegedly was attacked with a fork.
    —————————————————————
    A fork might be what gets stuck in this tools career…

  46. boltfaninfalconcountry says: Aug 1, 2011 11:17 PM

    He sounds like a future Raider to me.

  47. scudbot says: Aug 1, 2011 11:17 PM

    I admit it. I stole his cell phone. I swear I didn’t tweet anything though. I sold it to his agent.

  48. jcaprio90 says: Aug 1, 2011 11:23 PM

    you call that a knife? this is a knife… um thats a spoon

  49. ditkadontbutkus says: Aug 1, 2011 11:25 PM

    “Alas, the Placesetting Trifecta was not completed, possibly because Braylon dropped the spoon.”

    This might be the most unlikely and funniest sentence posted on this site in recent memory.

  50. hawkeye6 says: Aug 1, 2011 11:27 PM

    Jets fans were whining that they didn’t re-sign Braylon, that it was crucial for the development of Sanchez and the offense.

    Notice how many New York Jet players came to the defense of Edwards during the free agency period.

    The guy appears to be a gigantic self absorbed jerk. Santonio Holmes is younger than him, and unbelievably so – Holmes is more mature than Edwards. How does that work?

  51. nomoreseasontix says: Aug 1, 2011 11:35 PM

    But, what can you expect when he wears his IQ as his jersey number?

  52. devrocks247 says: Aug 1, 2011 11:40 PM

    Bengals, Raiders, or maybe the Titans. That’s my guess as to what his options are.

  53. goldrush94 says: Aug 1, 2011 11:42 PM

    Hang around trouble, trouble will come to you.

  54. hairpie says: Aug 1, 2011 11:43 PM

    Gotta love these morons that start a sentence with “Yo”… i guess “Know what I’m sayin…” was too much to type.

  55. 411dooleybug1 says: Aug 1, 2011 11:46 PM

    Miami should sign him – Brandon Marshall needs someone to mentor.

  56. BrownsTown says: Aug 1, 2011 11:53 PM

    Why do I have the feeling that Braylon is going to be one of the guys that goes BK after his career is over?

  57. mikeyhigs says: Aug 1, 2011 11:56 PM

    The old “lost my phone” excuse is gold. It’s right up there with “the dog ate my homework,” and “it’s not you, it’s me.”

  58. nomoreseasontix says: Aug 1, 2011 11:57 PM

    “I miss the good old days when there were role model football players i.e Jerry Rice, Walter Payton, etc. Those were REAL players who conducted themselves like ADULTS on and off the field.”—-

    Are you including the time, in Redwood City, Ca., when Jerry was caught by police hiding in a closet at a massage parlor during a raid?

    Couldn’t help it.

  59. leftysmoke says: Aug 1, 2011 11:58 PM

    What a douche. Go do some more back flips. Preferably into a volcano.

  60. jacksaysfu says: Aug 2, 2011 12:03 AM

    Braylon you better hope the UFL stays afloat cause your stock just hit

    Hard to fight with limp wrists…

  63. david7590 says: Aug 2, 2011 12:16 AM

    and he has the gaul to wonder why the Jets wouldn’t give him $50 million over five years? This guy isn’t going to make it to opening day, book it.

  64. iminyrhead says: Aug 2, 2011 12:18 AM

    WOW! Must have recieved a pre published book from Kwame Kilpatrick and executed it to perfection!

  65. hobartbaker says: Aug 2, 2011 12:22 AM

    It was a terrible misunderstanding.

    By stupendously misfortunate coincidence, the phrase ” Yo, homie, fly eats” sounds exactly like the Cantonese expression for “I have sodomized your sister”. Not only that but “Wo!…chill, bro,…. chill!” sounds exactly like their expression “For the precise sum of three dollars!”. You can guess what happened from there.

  66. ruckthefaiders says: Aug 2, 2011 12:22 AM

    sounds like a future faider signee!

  67. hobartbaker says: Aug 2, 2011 12:26 AM

    Hey PFT, Bray may not be the sharpest utensil in the drawer, but at least he knows enough not to take a spoon to a knife and fork fight.

  68. doe22us says: Aug 2, 2011 12:31 AM

    A lot of football players a dumb and make dumb decisions, but this guy to call im dumb will be an insult to the word itself.

    Nflguy,
    There a lot of great guys in league now. In Payton’s day there were a lot of idiots also.

  75. fmwarner says: Aug 2, 2011 3:16 AM

    His value just dropped more than he does.

  76. theysone says: Aug 2, 2011 3:26 AM

    This article and the comments are gold, jerry!

  77. dfwxpress says: Aug 2, 2011 3:35 AM

    “Damn. Get ya knuckles ready” and “Don’t fight if. You don’t know how.”

    -Well written for a Michigan guy. Its too bad he dropped had his phone stolen. He is a talented receiver who could be the greatest of his generation but refuses to work for it.

  78. chuckyd317 says: Aug 2, 2011 4:57 AM

    He is knockin out his prereq’s to get signed by the Bengals….

  79. malizia23 says: Aug 2, 2011 7:29 AM

    Either Bengals or Pats

    In showing support for their son, Braylon’s parents issued the following statement:

    “This whole thing is a misunderstanding, We have been assured by the police that Braylon never drew his spoon from his holster and will not be charged”.

  81. texline1 says: Aug 2, 2011 7:43 AM

    Well, this proves something at least. He is not only a terrible receiver, but also a terrible liar. My account was hacked!!!! Come on, Tard. You are a pimple on the a$$ of society.

  82. NFLJunkie says: Aug 2, 2011 7:43 AM

    The Jets must feel pretty good about the move. Why keep the guy who gets himself mixed up in a silverware assault when you can have the guy who dropped a loaded gun down his pants?

    Definite trade up.

  85. jackblackshairyback says: Aug 2, 2011 8:11 AM

    Good to see that the rest of the country understands what we Browns fans had been saying for a few years. Edwards is an idiot, plain and simple. There’s NO redeeming qualities about him. If he were a top notch WR maybe, but he isnt.

    Fresh off a DUI and probation violation, and he’s hanging out at bars again? Get a clue Braylon.

    Just does not know when to stop.

  88. steeelfann says: Aug 2, 2011 8:34 AM

    Not only is Edwards not really very good, probably the worst hands of any starter in the league, and highly overdrafted.

    But is there anyone, I mean anyone (see T.O), that is more annoying, into themselves and just regurgitating and stupid then Edwards. He is so obnoxious, and yet, HE thinks he is something to behold. Hey Braylon: NY Jets didn’t want you. And they will take anyone. Think about that Mr. Cool.

  89. anactualnflowner says: Aug 2, 2011 8:36 AM

    Braylon Edwards & Kenny Britt… two morons in a pod.

  90. jpb12 says: Aug 2, 2011 9:06 AM

    Pretty expensive night out.
    Won’t occur to him – not to put himself in these situations.

    “Alas, the Placesetting Trifecta was not completed, possibly because Braylon dropped the spoon”

    Mike-
    I love it when you’re sleep-deprived. Like others above, I just about spit water all over my keyboard. Probably the best and most unexpected line I’ve ever seen.

    Shouldn’t of dropped the phone then. Such a diva.

  94. melikefootball says: Aug 2, 2011 10:11 AM

    This guy is a black eye to the NFL. He has no clue on how to stay out of possible bad situations, the judge in Ohio should be shaking his head.

  95. kmfl1 says: Aug 2, 2011 11:03 AM

    With THOSE hands? You’re probably right! He DID drop the spoon!

  96. dallasbaby says: Aug 2, 2011 11:42 AM

    Denver will be in talks with him before the day is over.

  97. rollerino1 says: Aug 2, 2011 11:54 AM

    Maybe Bray needs some mental health evals; and an AA group to attend. What a knucklehead.
