Braylon Edwards had zero catches on Sunday afternoon, despite a couple balls being thrown directly threw his hands. He then went to a night club, and reportedly beat up a 130 pound friend of LeBron James. LeBron spoke on it today.
He's (Givens) a good friend of mine. The situation is sensitive right now. But it is unfortunate. Hopefully my friend is doing well at this point. It is unfortunate when something like this happens at someone's work place. My friend, that is where he works, and it is unfortunate that it happened there. I've never crossed paths with Braylon before but it seems like there is a little jealously going on with Braylon and me and my friends. I have no idea why. I've never said anything to Braylon at all. For him to do that I think is very childish. My friend is 130 pounds, seriously it is like hitting one of my kids or something like that. It doesn't make sense but the right people will take care of it.To say that Braylon Edwardsdid something like this surprises me as much as the Browns losing did yesterday. If this is true expect Mangini - the same coach who fined an unnamed Browns player over a thousand dollars for forgetting to pay for a hotel water bottle - to come down hard on Edwards,even if the law doesn't. I wouldn't be surprised if Mangini suspended him for multiple games. There will be no star / impact player factor weighed into his decision either, because simply, Braylon is neither a star nor an impact player. It would be like suspending Darrian Chiverinni at this point in Braylon's career, no offense to the Chiv.
