Braylon Edwards traded to Jets -- did we speak too soon about Mangini?
OK, maybe Eric Mangini isn't so bad after all.
ESPN.com reports that the Browns have traded Braylon Edwards to the New York Jets.
The trade comes just two days after Edwards allegedly punched promoter and LeBron buddy Edward Givens outside the View nightclub on Prospect Avenue at 2:30 a.m. Monday morning.
This tells us two things. First, this town isn't big enough for LeBron and anyone hating on LeBron's buddies.
It also tells us that, whatever you might think of Mangini's rocky start as coach, he acts swiftly when a player's bad attitude causes a distraction. The deal was with the Jets, Mangini's previous team, which seems a sign that Mangini had a big hand in the move. Will it cause a shift in our poll about Mangini's future? (See the right side of the page.)
"The Jets agreed to send key special teams player Jason Trusnik, wide receiver Chansi Stuckey and a pair of draft picks to Cleveland," ESPN reports.
