Jets Trade for Braylon Edwards

By on October 7, 2009 in

Earlier today the Cleveland Browns traded away WR Braylon Edwards to the New York Jets for special-teams player Jason Trusnik, WR Chansi Stuckey, and a pair of future draft picks. Edwards has been in the league for five years and will give QB Mark Sanchez the extra option he’s been looking for all season down field.  “It’s just another piece that we wanted to add,” said GM Mike Tannenbaum said. “We’re excited to get Braylon. We think he’s going to help us. It was a position that we liked, but it was also a position we felt that if there was an opportunity to improve, we were going to go ahead and try to do that.”

The NFL is currently looking into whether Edwards has violated league policy after allegedly assaulting a friend of NBA star LeBron James outside a Cleveland nightclub on Monday.  The situation may play a large factor as to why Edwards has found his new home to be New York. The Jets are next scheduled to take on the Miami Dolphins Monday, October 12th at LandShark Stadium. The following week they will host the Buffalo Bills at Giants Stadium.
