Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting and the team has confirmed that the Jets have acquired WR Braylon Edwards in a trade from the Browns this morning.
Details of the trade are are not yet known, but Schefter mentioned that LB Jason Trusnik, WR Chansi Stuckey and draft picks were included in the deal.
The talented Edwards (6’3″- 215 Lbs) has had a checkered past in Cleveland with several off-field incidents over the past few years including this past week where he was accused of assaulting a friend of NBA star LeBron James outside a Cleveland nightclub on Monday. He was not charged but the league is investigating.
During his five year career, Edwards has 238 catches for 3,697 yards and 28 touchdowns. He instantly gives the Jets a legitimate gamebreaker at WR.
