Braylon Edwards ready to feel the heat

Jets WR Braylon Edwards is under no illusions. He knows what kind of reception he’ll receive when he returns to Cleveland this weekend to face the Browns.

"I think the boos will be serious," he said, via the Newark Star Ledger.

Yes, Braylon, perhaps the city’s residents didn’t like it when you basically equated their local metropolis as a Podunk town where there’s nothing going on (though, to be fair, after LeBron James left, what exactly has been going on in Cleveland?). 

Or when you said today that you had to restrain yourself from doing a victory dance in coach Eric Mangini’s office when he informed you that you’d been traded.

From the article:

He said when Browns coach Eric Mangini called him into his office on Oct. 8, 2009, and told him he had been traded to the Jets, Edwards "thought it would be unprofessional to do a dance in his office."

"I couldn't get out of Berea (Ohio) fast enough," he said.

Edwards did not enjoy his reputation for the drops, which he called "some B.S."; the criticism from an ex-Browns player; the constantly in flux quarterback situation. He described himself as "happier" in New York and said he is doing everything he can to stay here long-term, after his one-year tender is up.

"With the exception of the one situation, I haven’t been a distraction," Edwards said, referring to his DWI arrest. "Though that was pretty distracting."


Hopefully for Edwards, he won’t be distracted by all the jeers that will be directed his way. Because, as he knows, they’re a-coming.

Enough people have said that Cleveland is basically a podunk town that there shouldn't be so much outrage about it.
