Braylon Edwards Rumors Continue; This Time, It's the Jets

With the Browns selecting two receivers in the second round yesterday – Brian Robiskie and Mohamed Massaquoi – the speculation of Braylon Edwards’ future with the Browns continues.  This time, there is word of Edwards being involved in a deal with the New York Jets that would send RB Thomas Jones to Cleveland.  This rumor was apparently fueled when the Jets decided to pick RB Shonn Greene out of Iowa.

Head coach Eric Mangini has been busy turning the Browns into the Cleveland Jets this offseason, so it wouldn’t be all that surprising to see a move like this happen.  However, at this point, it would appear more likely that Edwards is staying put.  Robiskie and Mossaquoi could certainly develop into #1 receivers, but keeping Edwards around gives the receiving corps actual potential for next season.

This also doesn’t seem like much of a possibility now that the Browns have gone with RB James Davis, out of Clemson.

    I am torn about day one of the Draft. I agree with the decision to trade down once Curry was gone to the Seahawks at number 4. I think we got plenty from the jets for the fifth overall pick. I am not the least bit disappointed that we did not get Sanchez or Crabtree.  Because Orakpo was gone bt the time we chose at 17th overall, I would have liked to see Matthews or Maualuga selected.  At the same time, I acknowledge that Alex Mack is by far the best Center in college football, and our offensive line got creamed last season.  Two wide receivers back to back with our second and third picks bothers me, however, I can’t complain about who we picked among the receivers who were left.  Our fourth selection – DE David Veikune of Hawaii – concerns me a little in terms of his size, but his stats are very impressive and he will definitely assist with our pathetic pass rush.  16 sacks and 25 tackles the last two years is pretty good.

    I loved the trade down! I was really excited when KC pasted on Curry, followed by extreme disappointment when Sea took him, but thats how the draft goes. Now what we did with the trade down is a different story… Ok, so Orakpo, Cushing and English; One could’ve fell to you but didn’t make it, got it. So you trade down two more spots. And here at 19, i think Maclin would’ve been the pick, but you make it easy for Philly and give them the pick for a 6th round. Nervous because I can see the future(pick 36..)and I don’t like it, but not mad yet. Pick#21: Jamal can’t run forever. I was sure that this was going to be the impact back we needed with Donald Brown. We take Mack. A little over valued, but everybody wanted him, and he’s a guaranteed contributor for a long time, plus I THINK I can tell the future (LeSean McCoy;2nd round pick#18) so I’m not worried. And Whats up with Rey Maualuga!? He’s on the board in the second round at 4. We only have one real linebacker, and it shows in our run defense. If you want to keep drafting DE’s, switch back to a 4-3. Otherwise…?…

    I feel we should pick up Foote from the steelers and be done with it.We,like Andresaid,need linebackers.I love that we picked up Robiski but did we need another wide out next?No,we could have picked up a decent tight end at this point.Petagrew was gone,but Coffee was there.Idon’t know,lets just play football.
