Don’t Throw it to STONE HANDS

When you give up 2 draft picks plus two players for one troubled receiver mid-season you are doing so with the intention of getting a big-time player, someone who will make a difference. Or, if you’re the New York Jets you do that trade for Braylon “Stone Hands” Edwards. This is the same Edwards who led the league with 16 dropped passes last year, but sure, he’s probably over that…

Braylon Edwards Can’t Hold the Ball

At Curtis Granderson’s celebrity hoops game over the weekend, the fleet Tigers center fielder served as referee for the various celebs in attendance. Granderson had some fun with the role, no more than when the Cleveland Browns’ all-pro dropsies receiver Braylon Edwards went up for an acrobatic, wide-open breakaway dunk and lost control of the ball. “Somebody must have fouled you,” Granderson called out after blowing his whistle after the play, noting that no one was in the vicinity whatsoever. Of course, Edwards is well-versed in being unable to hold onto the ball, as he just finished one of the great seasons in drops from a wide receiver.

The game was ultimately tied up by a pair of Kid Rock free throws, as most true sporting events are, and then a dunk contest between Edwards and Jameer Nelson, an And1 baller where Nelson emerged as the victor.

Barefoot in the Park

In one of the most idiotic possible injuries, Browns wide receiver Braylon Edwards, whose breakout year last year is one of the big reasons for optimism in Cleveland, was hurt at the end of practice on Saturday, requiring stitches in his foot after getting stepped on by teammate Donte Stallworth. Normally football cleats prevent exactly such injuries but Edwards, the brightest bulb, was running barefoot on the field whilst everyone else was still wearing their spikes. Smart!

“Everything is pretty well fine other than the fact he has stitches,” Romeo Crennel said. “So, we are going to try to get that healed, and then we will get him back out here. He was in good spirits last night when I spoke with him and he is anxious to get back.”
