Call Off The Search, Braylon Edwards Has Been Found

Braylon Edwards New York Jets

Following wildly successful and impressive 2007 season, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Braylon Edwards went missing. After more than 20 months he has finally been found.

Call off the nation-wide manhunt, take his face off milk cartons and tell Nancy Grace she needs to find a new topic, Edwards re-emerged and jumped right back into playing football. He showed up clad in a green No. 17 jersey on Monday night, and was nothing short of a difference maker for the New York Jets’ offense in a 31-27 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

He was all over the field, grabbing five passes for 64 yards and a touchdown. On top of that, he snagged a 34-yard pass with an acrobatic catch that put him out at the one yard line. He also set up another touchdown by drawing a pass interference call at near the goal line as well.

Edwards looked like exactly what rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez needs to carry the Jets to a playoff berth. A 6’3″, 215-pound, athletic receiver with a Pro Bowl background will instill a lot of confidence in a young quarterback. Sanchez looked for Edwards early and often Monday night and the pair looked to have some sort of chemistry. Which is amazing since this was Braylon’s first week with the Jets.

It makes you wonder why Edwards went into hiding all those months ago?

Could it be that Edwards didn’t feel loved by the quarterbacks in Cleveland? Did he lose interest in the game because it simply wasn’t worth playing with or around guys like Brady Quinn (64.5 career QB rating) and Derek Anderson (72.1 career QB rating).

Now that he can actually play with a talented quarterback like Mark Sanchez, he decided it was time to brazenly resurface, Salmon Rushdie-style. Which reminds us, there may be a fatwa out on him in Cleveland.

  3. I don’t mean to suggest that either Quinn or Anderson are as good as Sanchez. It’s just that it will get Jets fan when the team loses and Braylon can’t hide how happy he is because he made some good catches. I’m still so shaken up by it that I can’t stop commenting on this post. That pass interference call you speak of above was garbage, too.

  4. The reason Edwards disappeared in Cleveland for the past season and a half is because he is a dog. He’s a spoiled, selfish quitter. We’re glad to be rid of him.

  5. Yeah that pass interference call was definitely a bad one. But I have to admit, Edwards looked good last night. I’m not a Jets fan or anything even remotely resembling a Jets fan, but if I were I’d be excited by what I saw. Maybe it disappears next week, but considering he only had a week with the team, Edwards looked great.

  6. Braylon Edwards should be investigated by the Players Union for tanking games in Cleveland.
