He's nothing more than a dime a dozen type of wide receiver ala replaceable (which is the reason why he's not only played for 3 separate teams in as many years, but has yet to get an invite to an NFL training camp here in 2012).
There's a reason why you'll never make the Hall of Fame without great statistics ala production on the football field. We all know that Braylon Edwards was a solid deep threat (but his deep threat abilities can be replaced by a 21 years of age speed burning talent in Stephen Hill; who led the Nation in yards per reception). Braylon Edwards also had a bad case of "the drops" (Did you not watch the games during 2009?). Like I've stated, the biggest impact Braylon Edwards made for our offense, was his ability to get out there and run block as a run blocking wide receiver (His run blocking ability can be replaced by Stephen Hill, who's rated as the #2 run blocking WR coming out of the draft).
I'm questioning your actual knowledge. Things that you can't look up on a stats website.
He had a lot of drops in 2009?
And now mention to one of the more (unfairly) criticized receivers. Braylon Edwards had some drops that stuck in the mind and came to New York with a reputation for dropping the ball after a disastrous ’08 season with the Browns, but it may shock some people that he only dropped four regular-season passes.
What about 2010 you ask?
Edwards had one of the lowest drop percentages in the NFL there in 2010.
Guess who had one of the highest in 2010?
Santonio Holmes and Jerricho Cotchery.
I don't know. It doesn't seem like you watch the games. Seems like you're judging soley on reputation.
