Braylon Edwards has been known to do his share questionable things, so it’s no surprise that he took to twitter today and called the people who run the New York Jets “idiots.” Edwards was trying to throw support behind his former quarterback Mark Sanchez and he later apologized for the comment.
After what just happened to Edwards, I wonder if he’ll be tweeting the same things about the people who run the Seattle Seahawks. According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, the Seahawks announced they gave Edwards the waived/injured designation and released him.
Karma is a you-know-what Mr. Edwards. There is no way to know whether this could be in response to Edwards’ antics from today or if it was just a coincidence, but either way, Edwards is out of a job.
Most likely it was the performance by Edwards on the field that got him waived. The eight-year pro has played for four teams in his career and he’s only caught eight passes for 74-yards on the season.
It’s hard to see anyone picking up Edwards since it took him a long time for a team to sign him earlier this year but there are teams looking into Terrell Owens and Chad Johnson, so you never know. We can probably scratch off the Jets as a possible destination right now. Just think, if he hadn’t taken to twitter, he may have had a shot to play for the Jets again since they are in need of receiver help.
It’s funny how things work out for people sometimes and maybe next time Edwards will think twice before calling a group of people idiots.
