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.

So much for Ray Lewis' theory that if the league and players association didn't come to a agreement there would be more violence.......we have it anyway.

Have to love Edwards sophomoric attempt to cover up the fight     
  "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!"

Hasn't anyone learned from Anthony Weiner

It's easy to see why the Jets don't want Edwards, what a zero.

I, for one, don't "feel bad" for Braylon in the least bit... he's a big boy who can make his own decisions...

According to Rich Cimini, the Jets never made an offer to re-sign Braylon because he was "too much of a diva" for the Jets.  Plus things like this and his DUI conviction... it looks to me like he never made a serious effort to clean up his act so the Jets said "goodbye".

As a Jets fan I'll miss his talent, but at least we didn't hand him a nice long term deal.

I'll never feel bad for fools who place themselves in situations where they get in trouble... or even worse, their clown hangers-on get in them into trouble. It doesn't take a summa cum laude graduate from MIT to figure out how to avoid problems, and it's obvious Braylon is far from that...but you'd think a guy who has cashed checks for millions of $$ over his career would be able to locate someone to ride his wallet who has a bit of sense.  

Pathetic.
