Browns Trade Edwards to Jets
UPDATED (5:32 p.m.)...
The Cleveland Browns have traded wide receiver Braylon Edwards to the New York Jets, both teams have announced.
The Jets traded wide receiver Chansi Stuckey, linebacker Jason Trusnik and two undisclosed draft choices to the Browns for Edwards, a former first-round draft pick.
The deal comes with the Browns winless and Edwards being investigated by the league for possible disciplinary action under the NFL's personal conduct policy. A man accused Edwards of assaulting him outside a Cleveland nightclub early Monday. The man is a friend of Cleveland Cavaliers basketball standout LeBron James and said that Edwards started an argument because of his jealousy over James's success. James reportedly called Edwards's actions "childish."
The Jets indicated that Edwards is expected to play in Monday night's game against the Miami Dolphins.
There was speculation during the offseason that Edwards might be traded, perhaps to the New York Giants.
The Jets also have been in the market for a wide receiver and were accused by the San Francisco 49ers of tampering with then-unsigned first-round draft selection Michael Crabtree, a wideout taken 10th overall in April by the 49ers.
Edwards has 10 catches for 139 yards and no touchdowns this season.
In four seasons plus four games in Cleveland, he totaled 238 catches for 3,697 yards and 28 touchdowns.
His best season came in 2007 when he had 80 catches for 1,289 yards and 16 touchdowns.
