Braylon and the Bar

Good Morning Sports Fans!

On my ride home yesterday, a friend of mine informed me that Browns wide receiver was involved in a fight late on Sunday evening after the Browns lost an overtime game to the Bengals with seconds left to go. According to reports, Edwards was hanging out in the bar at around 2:30 in the morning when the incident occurred. It was also published today that the gentleman he assaulted was a friend of Lebron James.

Edwards has had a tough season so far and a horrible game on Sunday but that is not an excuse for his behavior. Even though he was not in uniform, he was still representing the Cleveland Browns organization when he made his choice to assault the person heckling him in the bar. The move was selfish and Edwards would not be in this situation had he just walked away.

With the distractions during the offseason involving Donte Stallworth, Mangini coming in as the new coach, and the slow start, this is an incident the Browns did not need at the current moment. Edwards has struggled this season but taking his anger out on someone in a night club was selfish and will not help the team win football games.

Edwards had a right to be in the club but was setting himself up for trouble by being out that late after having a bad game. Edwards had a right to be there but public figures have historically run into trouble whenever hanging out in clubs and bars during similar hours. Charles Barkley and David Wells have had similar problems in the past when making the choice to hang out in bars at around 2:30 in the morning. They have a right to be there but it doesn’t mean someone won’t be willing to cause them trouble.

Until next time, keep it real.
