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.

Cincy can't get anybody to sign there.  With his off the field problems, it looks like a perfect fit to me....

Thank you, Chargers_LT#1. When did big, tough football players morph into the Radio Shack set? I'm only a couple years older than Edwards, but I remember when football players used to stuff electronic geeks into lockers. Now these silly little girls flood us with airheaded tweets and LOLs. Grow up. Twitter sucks.

What an idiot. This is why I despise Twitter. Or, why I think athletes should just leave it alone. They're too stupid to handle it. And if you want to be a Twitter gangster, at least own it afterwards. Don't come out with the standard and weak "someone stole my phone" excuse. And this is how he convinces teams to sign him? Enjoy the CFL, clown. This is me hanging my head in shame since Edwards went to my alma mater.

the Jets never made an offer to re-sign Braylon because he was "too much of a diva" for the Jets.
Wow Braylon Edwards must be the ultimate Diva if he is too much of a Diva for the Jets who are loaded with them.

Yo Braylon nobody is fooled. We all know who sent the Tweets.

Grow up young boy anything that begins with Twit is for pre-teenage girls.

What team is going to sign him long term?  This guy needs to lower his asking price and then clean himself up.  He has top 5 talent with a bottom 5 brain.

Wow, Braylon's gotta pull it together.  When your entourage is fighting in Birmingham Alabama with waitstaff and someone gets cut it's only a matter of time before the bow breaks.  It seems like this guy can't stay away from trouble, especially when you should be marketing yourself to other teams during this free agent period.  Now I realize why the Jets moved in another direction.  Grow up and stop tweeting, unless it's more important than playing football in the NFL.
