Braylon Edwards' latest run-in with John Law

It hasn't been the best offseason for Braylon Edwards. Even though he recently managed to avoid jail time, he's been unable to find gainful employment from an NFL team (and awkwardly tweeted about the Jets not wanting him).

And now he's reportedly had another "incident," this time in a Birmingham, Alabama club. According to My Fox Detroit (via PFT.com) Edwards was allegedly at a bar on Sunday and two of his "entourage" were arrested for "roughing up some employees" late at night.

Robin Murdoch of the station also reports that Edwards' buddies got into an argument with employees that "eventually spilled into the kitchen" and that one worker was "sliced with a knife requiring 14 stitches." Murdoch also notes that "another was attacked with a fork."

Making matters (allegedly) worse is the fact that Edwards (allegedly) tweeted two statements -- "Damn. Get ya knuckles ready" and "Don't fight if. You don't know how" -- around the time of the incident.

Those tweets are no longer present on his timeline, but there is an odd message that Edwards left up on Twitter late on Monday night.

"Yo...Lost my phone last night someone sent tweets," Edwards tweeted. "Deleted them and changed my password. Sorry for the mishap hopefully never happens again!"

Read: he's claiming his Twitter account was hacked. (He also added "Friends & Fam if you need me DM or hit @NickBeam up he can reach me.") Of course, that's the oldest trick in the book, but it's not really possible to pinpoint anything on Braylon here, especially since the station reporting the news says he wasn't involved in the fight.

But it's still a "where there's smoke" matter, and it's hard to imagine anyone will be knocking down his door given the latest incident.

Wow Braylon is having all kinds of problems. if he is lucky the Jets will sign him to the very min. for one year and just see if he can do something. No other team is going to touch him now. Also number 17 on the Jets in Plax!! Edwards will be lucky to be wearing any uniform this year or ever again!! He needs to beg the Jets!!

So let me get this straight. Mr. Edwards in trying to find a new team to offer him a contract. He is already in trouble with the law. Now he is at a bar with friends and two of his friends cut one guy up and stab the other with a fork? Then, around the time of the incident he writes "Damn. Get ya knuckles ready" and "Don't fight if. You don't know how". The kicker is he claims he lost his phone and someone else sent the tweets. WOW. What else can you say about a bold face liar with no character? So you want us to believe that around the time of the fight, someone took your lost phone, signed onto twitter, tweeted about the fight as if they were you, then immediately after the fight left your phone in a place where you could find it, so that you could retract the statements made? I don't know what story is more believable - your I lost my phone and someone tweet real time events that were taking place and then I immediately found it and deleted them, or the fact you really believe you are a top notch receiver and should get anything above minimum wage. Edwards is a joke and a team would be foolish to sign this guy. If they do, they are just asking for it.

edwards must think everyone in the nation is as dumb as he if he expects us to believe that someone coincidentally tweeted about fighting right before the fights actually took place. edwards, u r a moron and a waste of talent. it would be nice to see no one pick him up until he cleans up his act but as we all know, that probably wont happen. the NFL isnt about morals, its about $, so im sure someone will pick him up.
