Braylon Edwards Failing At More Than His Physical

The Cleveland Browns would like to put 2008 in their rear view mirror and lose sight of it as fast as they can.  In what can only be categorized as ignorant, Braylon Edwards showed up to Browns camp a day late and failed his physical.  Edwards was placed on the Browns Active/Non-Football Injury list.   Great leverage in a contract year would be to show up early and in shape.

Edwards, who led the entire NFL in drops last year with 17, has to be more of a leader.  If Cleveland is going to turn things around this season, everybody has to chip in and try a little harder.  With this being the first major story from Browns camp, it seems like another step backwards for a team trying to overcome the “underachiever” label they earned last season.

Edwards’ contract is done after this season.  He could be fined up to $17,000 for reporting a day late.  He also missed mandatory minicamp in June with an undisclosed injury.  The swirling rumor mill reported he hurt his ankle playing basketball.  Because he missed minicamp, Edwards was to report with the rookies a week earlier than everyone else on the active roster.  Instead, he showed up a day later than everyone else.

    My hope is that the young blood at Wr’s the front office has decided to bring into this mix this year won’t fall victim to Braylon’s every so spreading cancer. This postion is really the key to the Brownies sucsess on offense this season. That line should be killer- so both Qbs should at least have the time and cushion they need to develop. But if we can’t get production out of our WR’s and especially a guy like Braylon(verteran)- not only on the filed, but off the field in the mentoring role- we will fall flat again. I don’t know much about Massaquoi (or how ever the hell you spell it), besides the fact that his like six eight and seemed to have good hands at GA , but I’m almost certain that Robiskie won’t catch the Braylon plague. He really seems to have a great head on his shoulders and I’m really rooting for the Ohio homie to do great things. Plus everything really seems to fit for him as a Brown and I thinks that’s why we went after him so early.
