Braylon Edwards still could be facing trouble after fight in Michigan

Edwards_Braylon

Jets coach Rex Ryan says he’s interested in former Browns and Jets receiver Braylon Edwards, at the right price.  That price could be paid in the form of bail money.

Despite a Monday report from FOX 2 in Detroit suggesting that Edwards had no role in a fight that allegedly involved two members of his entourage assaulting bar employees with a knife and a fork, respectively, Jay M. Grossman of the Birmingham Eccentric reports that Braylon was involved in the brouhaha.  Specifically, the proprietors of the South Bar in Birmingham, Michigan issued a statement implicating the former Wolverine:  “Braylon Edwards was present and involved, but it’s an ongoing police investigation so at this time we don’t have any further information.”

Birmingham police explain that Edwards wasn’t arrested on the scene because police were too busy breaking up the fight to notice whether Edwards was involved.

For now, two of Braylon’s cousins have been charged with felonious assault. One bouncer at the bar was slashed on the hand with a pocket knife.  Another was stabbed in the neck with a fork.

Employees of the bar privately told Grossman that Edwards was encouraging his cousins to fight.  Also present at the time was former Wolverine star and NBA star (and ESPN employee) Jalen Rose, who reportedly tried to stop the fight.

Edwards has more than his employee prospects hinging on this one.  He’s still on probation for assault in Cleveland, where he recently faced the possibility of jail time based on a guilty to DUI in New York.

    Goodell may have to banish him to that football league in India

  2. mike2347 says: Aug 3, 2011 4:58 PM

    Must be that New York essence of his that gets him in trouble.

    Fool me once shame on you…..fool me twice…PUNK!!!!

    Anyone that has to go to a bar/club with an entourage would not be welcome on my team….just sayin

  5. eaglesfootballfan says: Aug 3, 2011 5:00 PM

    When is Braylon going to stop getting in trouble with the law.

  6. illiniftw says: Aug 3, 2011 5:01 PM

    Stupid is as stupid does

  7. southridge23 says: Aug 3, 2011 5:01 PM

    God please lock this idiot up and throw away the key and let’s move on

  8. medtxpack says: Aug 3, 2011 5:02 PM

    im sure Jalen Rose started it.

  9. mataug says: Aug 3, 2011 5:03 PM

    thumbs up to Jalen Rose
    thumbs down to Braylon Edwards

    Turds like Braylon are the ones due to which I almost avoid the bar/club scene these days. You cannot even speak to somebody w/o some idiot having an issue with it.

  10. skoobyfl says: Aug 3, 2011 5:03 PM

    Sounds like he has good family support.

  11. ed1311 says: Aug 3, 2011 5:03 PM

    I can’t believe you can be THIS stupid .. stay out of trouble, ANY trouble, when you are a NFL player, espicially when you are trying to get a new contract!?

  12. theglobalbrief says: Aug 3, 2011 5:03 PM

    Stupid is as stupid does…the gospel of Braylon Edwards.

  13. wryly1 says: Aug 3, 2011 5:06 PM

    Shhh… can you keep a dirty little secret? Edwards has a growing alcohol problem.

  14. dcrams20 says: Aug 3, 2011 5:07 PM

    Well, he never has been accused of being the sharpest knife in the drawer ……or fork! And who in their right mind stabs someone in the neck with a fork?? This guy just doesn’t get it – and most likely never will!

  15. nineroutsider says: Aug 3, 2011 5:07 PM

    This guy needs to go away. You simply aren’t good enough for any team to want to deal with this crap.

    What an idiot; can’t wait to see his tweets from jail though, “Nasty Nate caught me in the shower again. Said I am a great receiver.”

  16. bearsrulepackdrool says: Aug 3, 2011 5:07 PM

    He’ll never learn.

  17. polishkingski says: Aug 3, 2011 5:09 PM

    god i would love him to go to jail. this guy is a real baffoon. i just watched an interview with demarcus ware, how is it some guys can be so professional and grounded, totally aware of the big picture and some cannot? people are amazing.

  18. thousandcasts says: Aug 3, 2011 5:09 PM

    How does someone who’s basically unemployed have an entourage?

    I wish I could give you more than 1 thumbs up

  21. nflsucker says: Aug 3, 2011 5:15 PM

    Isn’t it time to stab Braylon’s career in the neck with a fork?

  22. butteredsanta says: Aug 3, 2011 5:17 PM

    I’d buy that for a dollar!

  23. imjinbrdgr says: Aug 3, 2011 5:21 PM

    I’m ashamed that Edwards came out of Michigan. Is this the kind of guy the players don’t want Goodell to punish?

  24. phillycheez says: Aug 3, 2011 5:25 PM

    Hands of stone and a brain to match. Why any team would want this guy is beyond me.

  25. rambo08 says: Aug 3, 2011 5:25 PM

    I wonder if his beard has lice.

  26. imasturbate says: Aug 3, 2011 5:37 PM

    Another guy that thinks he’s invincible….good luck getting guaranteed money if anyone even picks you up. He will be in jail and bankrupt in 5 years. Another sob story for Real Sports.

    Stick a fork in his career (or neck)… He’s done!

  29. hobartbaker says: Aug 3, 2011 5:42 PM

    “Mr Edwards, at any time during the altercation did you utter the words…. ‘Stab ‘im inna neck widda fork, Blood, stab ‘im inna neck!’…. as has been alleged?”.

    Not wanting to be involved in the dustup, the Dish ran off with the Spoon.

  31. bebopa says: Aug 3, 2011 5:55 PM

    was a huge Braylon fan but that was in the past. Looks like trouble always finds him or is it the other way around.

  32. 4evrnyt says: Aug 3, 2011 6:02 PM

    Edwards is a friend of Dorothy.

  33. vetdana says: Aug 3, 2011 6:02 PM

    It is possible to purchase liquor and take it home for consumption…….but not an option for a bafoon who is full of himself and wants to “strut ” in the bar scene. Not wise a move for one on probation !

  34. blaz0037 says: Aug 3, 2011 6:02 PM

    Stabbed in the neck with a fork? I’m speechless.

  35. deadeye says: Aug 3, 2011 6:03 PM

    I’m gonna go out on a limb and predict that BE won’t get 25 million dollars over five seasons.

    Birmingham Eccentric is just a great name for a newspaper.

    You know you’re a loser if you have an entourage or a posse full of hanger ons with their hands out.

  40. nomoreseasontix says: Aug 3, 2011 6:37 PM

    India football league. Great idea.
    *sound of cell door slamming*

    Give him a break gang – especially if he holds a knife like a football !! He’s got to be innocent.

  42. lawyermalloy says: Aug 3, 2011 6:55 PM

    Gee, what a shock!

  43. achap39 says: Aug 3, 2011 7:06 PM

    Really? You have millions upon millions of dollars and you’re hanging around in a yuppie suburb of Detroit? Christ, at least pay for a flight to Vegas.

  44. brownsclown says: Aug 3, 2011 7:19 PM

    ‘Goodell may have to banish him to that football league in India’

    Already the Indian League has taken a hit and getting bad PR!

    My question is was his friend Donte Stallworth also involved? And, did they have one for the road before leaving the bar?

  45. superfuzz1000 says: Aug 3, 2011 7:40 PM

    He is a human turd and he needs to go away!!!!

  46. green18blue52 says: Aug 3, 2011 7:48 PM

    Someone call the G that tossed Sergio Kindle down the stairs to deal with this guy

  47. mashoaf says: Aug 3, 2011 8:16 PM

    Isn’t Jalen on Parole for a DUI? He needs to keep out of this stuff or face going to the joint for a while.

  48. doe22us says: Aug 3, 2011 10:42 PM

    Sometimes you just pause and then think can a human being be that stupid, i think monkeys (an insult to the monkeys) have a higher level of intellect than Braylon. No joke. wow

  49. themightywhitey says: Aug 3, 2011 11:00 PM

    assaulting bar employees with a knife and a fork

    To think that tweet wouldn’t have been necessary had he not dropped the soap to begin with.

  52. karl422 says: Aug 4, 2011 11:14 AM

    At one point I wanted the Jets to resign him. Not anymore. My God, how much trouble can one guy get in before he wakes up.

  53. brooksdawg says: Aug 6, 2011 3:37 PM

    Looks like Cleveland has another Braylon on their hands. Reading in Browns training camp that WR Greg Little is dropping passes left and right.
