Seahawks cut Braylon Edwards


Braylon Edwards is a Seahawk no more.

Seattle has waived Edwards, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reported and the team later announced. Edwards will be given the waived/injured designation, although it was not immediately clear what the nature of his injury is.

Edwards, who signed a one-year contract with the Seahawks in July, has mostly been a non-factor for the Seahawks this season, with eight catches in 10 games. Edwards was also a non-factor in San Francisco last season, and at age 29 he may not have much left.

We’ve already mentioned Edwards a couple times today, first because he said the people who run his old team, the Jets, are idiots, and then because he apologized for saying that. And now we know why Edwards suddenly realized that it’s not wise to burn bridges.

    I guess he thinks the guys running the Seahawks are idiots too.

    The irony

  3. whitecastleisafoodgroup says: Dec 4, 2012 6:24 PM

    Damn, Braylon. Looks like you need to get a job. Most of the seasonal jobs are already taken though, sorry!

  4. jesse1834 says: Dec 4, 2012 6:25 PM

    Maybe the Chiefs will sign him in time so he can be one of the many ex-Browns players/coaches/executives that will be in Cleveland this weekend.

    Get your 1 time termination pay while you can

    Geniuses are running the Seahawks.

    Pete Carroll is an idiot too Braylon

  8. djteknision1200 says: Dec 4, 2012 6:26 PM

    Now we see the motives behind the apologies!! He now needs a job… Idiot!!

    Another member of theWashed Up Wide Recievers club just hanging on to any coin they can make before the bank repos the Bentley…

  10. hawkitnow says: Dec 4, 2012 6:33 PM

    Hahahaha! Surprised by the move? Not really, but the timing was funny after the apology. He was expendable. The hawks could be signing a corner from the practice squad for the inevitable suspensions of Sherman and Browner. GO HAWKS!

  11. lgw91s says: Dec 4, 2012 6:34 PM

    I’d probably cross the jets off the mailing list for your resume.

  12. jakec4 says: Dec 4, 2012 6:37 PM

    Odd move by Pete Carroll. Given Sidney Rice’s tendency to injure easily, Edwards was decent depth down the stretch run. The Seahawks are one of those playoff fringe teams that needs to be careful about releasing a player who can help another team overtake their position.

  13. John A. says: Dec 4, 2012 6:38 PM

    I love twitter.

    Edwards was also a non-factor in San Francisco last season, and at age 29 he may not have much left.

    Other than one season,this pretty much sums up his career…

  16. darknessspreads says: Dec 4, 2012 6:40 PM

    Edwards was right about the Jets’ FO being inept, but the Seahawks FO and the Jets’ FO have done deals before and seem to have a good relationship. This was (partially at least) a way for the Seahawks FO to avoid scuttling that relationship.

  17. gbpbacker84 says: Dec 4, 2012 6:40 PM

    This dude might as well go hang out with Charles Rogers and talk about how much talent they wasted due to being self-centered.

  18. harrisonhits2 says: Dec 4, 2012 6:40 PM

    If they’re waiving him because he’s injured believe the Seahags are on the hook for the rest of his salary this year so he can sit at home and not be too concerned about paychecks for the rest of the season.

  19. elmoron says: Dec 4, 2012 6:42 PM

    Uhh….you were saying? Please continue.

  21. brenenostler says: Dec 4, 2012 6:45 PM

    This dude gets moved at bizarre times. He gets released from Seattle with four regular season games left. He got cut from San Fran right before the season finale. In 2009, he was traded to New York in like week 4? He’s probably a locker room cancer.

  22. wyobroncoboy says: Dec 4, 2012 6:47 PM

    I know its Christmas and all…………..But its still funny…

    Busy day for braylon

  24. citiciti says: Dec 4, 2012 6:49 PM

    Because you played at Michigan!

  25. thetooloftools says: Dec 4, 2012 6:49 PM

    It’s official. He’s a bust.

  26. charleslouis99 says: Dec 4, 2012 6:49 PM

    boy, that escalated quickly.

  27. kane337 says: Dec 4, 2012 6:49 PM

    The Browns want him back.

  28. hoopieguy says: Dec 4, 2012 6:50 PM

    As a Browns fan, this is sweet to see. We always knew he was an over-rated (in his own mind) arrogant pretty boy.

  29. dowhatifeellike says: Dec 4, 2012 6:51 PM

    BE never could catch a ball very well and now he’s run out of breaks to catch.

  30. 6ringsandarapist says: Dec 4, 2012 6:52 PM

    they have golden tate….what more do they need. lol

  31. brownsclown says: Dec 4, 2012 6:55 PM

    OMG! The ‘hawks cutting Braylon ‘hands of stone/head to match’ Edwards just before their playoff run!

    But now the trilogy of truth has been completed!

    First, should he apologize for calling the JETS organization idiots? No, because what he said is true.

    Second, Who better to identify an idiot than an idiot?

    And third, wise man say that the best teams need receivers that can catch the ball! Braylon has a hard time catching a cab, a cold, the flu, and the bus out of town!

    Goodbye Scumbag!

  32. boobsmcgoo says: Dec 4, 2012 6:58 PM

    Wait, he was still in the league?

  33. gmenfan1982 says: Dec 4, 2012 6:59 PM

    Oh man that’s awesome. Hilarious. Dude had a ton of potential. There’s reasons why he’s already been on 3-4 teams.

  34. dredddog says: Dec 4, 2012 7:01 PM

    Michigan bum

  35. gallogj says: Dec 4, 2012 7:01 PM

    Open mouth…insert foot.

  36. vicksprman says: Dec 4, 2012 7:03 PM

    He’ll sign with the Jets on Thursday just to make the bizarro world circle complete.

  37. mavix27 says: Dec 4, 2012 7:08 PM

    Guess the Jets won’t be calling, unless they’re really idiots.

  38. proflonghair says: Dec 4, 2012 7:10 PM

    It’s because he played for Michigan

  39. hehateme2 says: Dec 4, 2012 7:14 PM

    foot in mouth disease?

  40. swaggyy says: Dec 4, 2012 7:18 PM

    Sid the kid and golden Tate bridge are playmakers and with Baldwin in the slot and the younger guys behind him, Edwards is very expendable. Probably making room for a corner if indeed Sherm and BB are out.

  41. bensstinkyfingers says: Dec 4, 2012 7:25 PM

    Must be a buncha Ohio State fans running SF. and Seattle, SInce that was his excuse on why the Cleveland thing didnt work out in the end. Boo Hoo Bray Bray go punch one of Lebron’s wimpy friends again to get your frustration out, better yet just punch Lebron.

  42. sean6886 says: Dec 4, 2012 7:28 PM

    Hello, Jets, are you seeing this? We need a WR and he’s familiar with the system. C’mon, do something right for once. Won’t save our season, but at least we might look a little better.

  43. Cereal says: Dec 4, 2012 7:32 PM


  44. Just a Fan says: Dec 4, 2012 7:32 PM

    Lions could use some depth now, why not give him a try. Stafford would be a major upgrade our all the crap QBs he has had throwing the ball to him in the NFL.

    Braylon hasn’t had a good QB since Brady in college. I bet if the Clowns didn’t draft him he would have been to a few playoffs by now.

  45. spideysdog says: Dec 4, 2012 7:38 PM

    Dear Braylan,

    The Jets f/o may be idiots. McElroy may be a joke. Rex may run his mouth more than any head coach should. Woody Johnson may make terrible political associations. Mike Tannenbaum may be a tool. But Tim Tebow has more production this season.

    Good bye,

    Seahawks Nation

  46. 1standinches says: Dec 4, 2012 7:47 PM

    So embarrasing haha

  47. jibberator says: Dec 4, 2012 7:50 PM

    darn, I was glad he was on the seahawks after SF kicked him out.

  48. csilojohnson says: Dec 4, 2012 7:53 PM

    So much for that empty apology.

  49. ilovefoolsball says: Dec 4, 2012 7:56 PM

    Hope he saved his money.

  50. yajas says: Dec 4, 2012 8:04 PM

    kane337 says: “The Browns want him back.”

    No they don’t.

  51. source7769 says: Dec 4, 2012 8:40 PM

    and now we know why you apologized to the jets , and yea you screwed up they were that desperate for wr help

  52. christophershearin says: Dec 4, 2012 8:45 PM

    Braylon’s stat line 8 receptions 9 drops 10 games 11 yards!

  53. themackstrong says: Dec 4, 2012 8:52 PM

    I don’t like the move because we are a team at need of even depth at WR. Baldwin started catching balls again but him Tate/Rice and nothing behind but raw undrafted guys. I understand it in a way because he missed his chances the times he was given an opportunity and is on twitter talking to “his fans” after every game.

  54. 2difshoe says: Dec 4, 2012 9:03 PM

    This guy couldn’t catch a cab.

  55. dalucks says: Dec 4, 2012 9:10 PM

    Braylon had 8 ctaches in 10 games. Whoa. Talk about unproductive. I have to wonder what took so long for this move to happen.

  56. trollhammer20 says: Dec 4, 2012 10:24 PM

    In spite of the fact Seattle had some problems at the WR position earlier this year (Baldwin and Charly Martin were both injured), Edwards never really made it onto the field that much. Had a shot to score a TD this past Sunday, but the refs overturned it. Kinda odd, but if I recall clearly, this is about the time of year that SF cut him last season.

    Jermaine Kearse has made a few plays this season, and will likely take up any playing time Edwards was getting. And, yeah, they’re probably freeing up a roster spot to add a DB once the league suspends the two CBs. I have no doubts the league will do that, regardless of what takes place at the hearings – the league hates to admit it’s wrong about anything. Look at the bounty case, it’s taking a real court to have that thrown out.

  57. rg3andthensome says: Dec 4, 2012 10:46 PM

    Is he still wearing those stupid suits and impersontating Abe Lincoln and Malcolm X with that stupid beard? What a joke!

  58. moseszd says: Dec 4, 2012 11:44 PM

    Well, first of all, the Jets are idiots… So the blind hog of Braylon Edwards did find that acorn.

    But this should come as no surprise. He was not a very good receiver. He had a few moments. One very good season.

    But mostly it wooden hands and a wooden head.

  59. totallyuselessme says: Dec 5, 2012 12:25 AM

    Braylon, for all his faults, is a good person.

    He gives an awful lot back to his community. wherever he plays. He parties, but he does more good than ever gets reported in the media because negativity and misery get peoples’ attention easier.

    It’s the holiday season guys, and a good man just lost his job. Why all the hate?

  60. larrybrown43 says: Dec 5, 2012 12:25 AM

    Free speech can be very costly. He should have kept his nose in the playbook rather than Twitter.

  61. thesmedman says: Dec 5, 2012 12:33 AM

    Mr. Edwards, meet Mr. Washburn. Mr Washburn, meet Mr Edwards. Discuss.

  62. mdc21787 says: Dec 5, 2012 12:35 AM

    just saying….im glad there were no redskins signing him jokes there.

  63. jtylert says: Dec 5, 2012 2:51 AM

    Braylon Edwards received several offers from other teams but dropped every one of them.

  64. brownsapologist says: Dec 5, 2012 3:00 AM

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. One can only imagine what his career would have been like if he had ever learned how to catch a football.

  65. joetoronto says: Dec 5, 2012 5:15 AM

    Pete the cheat wanted him out because there’s only so much room for scumbags like them.

  66. granadafan says: Dec 5, 2012 11:34 AM

    Funny how these diva players are learning the hard way that their careers can come to a screeching halt once their play starts to drop. Their mouths and diva attitudes are not worth it. TO, Ocho, Tiki, Plax, and now Bray-on. Let this be a lesson to young players. Keep your mouths shut, be a good teammate to your co-workers, be respectful to your employers. There WILL be a time when they have the leverage and you are no longer the young stud in demand.

  67. richwizl says: Dec 5, 2012 12:36 PM

    It’s just business and there must be a logical reason for it. Pete Carroll is an excellent Coach and the Seahawks have a really good team this year; a lot to be jazzed about.
