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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

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

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

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

  9. 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

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

  11. 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…

  12. 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!

  13. 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?

  14. 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

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

    ______________________________

    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.

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

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

  18. “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.

  19. 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?

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

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

  22. 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.”

  23. “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.

  24. obamablowz says: “T-D-N…>Typical Dumb Person”

    As a Browns fan, I was really enjoying the Braylon jokes – until this one. Not cool.

  25. 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.

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. 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.

  29. Some of these are about the funniest comments I’ve ever seen on here.
    Awesome stuff!

  30. You can take the receiver out of the Jets, but you can’t take the Jets out of the receiver…

  31. “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.

  32. 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”.

  33. 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.

  34. 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.

  35. 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.

  36. 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.

  37. “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.

    ================================

    THIS IS BY FAR THE FUNNIEST COMMENT ON HERE. ROTFLMOF!!!

  39. 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.
