Jets trade for Braylon Edwards

Admin - October 7, 2009

According to ESPN, the Cleveland Browns have agreed to trade WR Braylon Edwards to the New York Jets this morning. The terms of the deal are still being finalized, but it's believed that it includes LB Jason Trusnik, WR Chansi Stuckey and two undisclosed draft choices. Trusnik won AFC Special Teams Player of the Week last week and Stuckey is third on the team in receiving with 11 catches for 120 yards and a touchdown.

Edwards, 26, has struggled this year for the Browns (0-4), with 10 catches for 139 yards in the team's four games. His breakout year was 2007, when he caught 80 balls for 1,289 yards and 16 touchdowns. He regressed last year to 55 catches, 873 yards and only three scores.

Edwards is also facing an NFL investigation for an off-the-field trouble. The league is probing whether Edwards violated the league's conduct policy following accusations he assaulted a friend of NBA star LeBron James outside a Cleveland nightclub on Monday night.

UPDATE: The two draft choices are reportedly a 3rd round pick and a 5th round pick.
