I certainly don't forget Braylon's contributions in 2010. My post did not focus exclusively on 2011. Why do you persistently ignore the entire body of Braylon's work in the NFL, including his off-field issues in Cleveland and on the Jets? If you'd look at that, you'd see why Cleveland was happy to get rid of him (too many drops there and bad off field issues - LaBron James and such) and then his less than stellar performance for the Jets in 2009. 2010 was an anomaly, Jordy. It was inconsistent with much of the rest of his career but for his spectacular 2007 season. 2007 was the only season he broke 1,000 yards. Face it. He has been a HUGE disappointment based on expectations due to his great college career at Michigan and overall #3 draft selection. His off the field baggage is continual and a serious problem.
In sum, Braylon was a decent WR that never lived up to his potential. And my speculation is that he did something to royally piss off Woody/Tannenbaum and/or Rex, despite what Rex has said publicly, because the Jets didn't give him any chance of returning. Maybe it was the humiliating DWI after Woody arranged for a private car service for all of his players to avoid such things. Why you, Vin and others virtually deify him is beyond comprehension. Great college player who had 1 excellent NFL season and a couple of good ones in 8 years. 5 mediocre to bad seasons. NFL GMs shun him and not one other player said anything in support of him after the 2010 season. That should tell you something. Nothing personal against him. I wish him luck if and when he lands with a 4th team.
