Braylon Edwards in minor car accident

Jets receiver Braylon Edwards was involved in a minor car accident in Detroit early this morning. He was not seriously hurt.

Local 4 reports that Edwards, who is from Detroit and was a star at Michigan, crashed his car on Belle Isle. Police said Edwards was driving too fast. They do not think he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The Detroit Free Press reports that Edwards lost control of his 2011 Audi at about 3:40 a.m., drove onto the grass and struck a pylon.

Edwards had a 25-year-old male passenger in the car. He was also not seriously hurt.

There is trouble with the trees,
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas.

Good question, but I'm not gonna speculate either way. Better off taking a "wait and see" approach.

"They do not think he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol."

Looks like a speeding ticket.

Funny, we were just talking about who's the bigger liability between Holmes and Edwards. I think this would lean to Edwards. Speeding around and losing control of his car.... what if he got injured?

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

This just further supports my theory that they're both dipsh*ts.

It just so happens Holmes' brand of dipsh*ttiness results in significant suspensions, while Edwards' results in him looking like a dipsh*t.

The Detroit Free Press is reporting that Braylon Edwards was involved in a minor car accident this morning.  Normally this wouldn’t be news worthy as it was reported that this was a minor fender bender and alcohol was not involved.  It does receive extra attention though because he is a free agent and he had a drunk driving incident last year.

Edwards, a wide receiver for the New York Jets, lost control of his 2011 Audi at about 3:40 a.m., drove onto the grass and struck a pylon, police said.

Edwards, police said, had a male passenger in the car. Neither was injured.

Stan Edwards, Braylon’s father and also a former U-M player, told the Free Press his son is OK.

“He’s fine,” Edwards said this afternoon. “It amounted to a fender bender. No one was injured.”

What do you think Jet Nation?  Does this impact your thoughts on bringing him back for this season?  The Santonio Holmes Braylon Edwards debate rages on.  You can read more about this accident and comment on our NY Jets forum.

I don't ever speed anymore. Once I refused to sign Oprah's no texting\driving pledge I said hell if I am going to crash it will be safer if I am driving slow.

Insert Santonio Holmes for Braylon Edwards and you'd have the same perspective, right?

Are you telling me that every single time you drive you're below the speed limit? You've never done 60 in a 55? Bullsh*t.

Nope, never. I drive ultra conservative vehicles that can barely even make it to the speed limit...

holmes hasn't done anything suspension worthy for a long time. Maybe he's grown up, maybe he hasn't.

Edwards never stopped doing dumb things.

Here we go again. Holmes was suspended four games last year (as far as growing up, upon return he repeatedly stated he will continue to act in the same manner that caused his suspension. so much for that, huh?). I'm not sure how that was all that long ago considering that was as recently as he could have been suspended. Edwards hasn't done anything suspension worthy ever, although he is still clearly a giant dipsh*t.

Is it really THAT hard for you to admit that they both clearly have issues? It's ok for you to like a player and be capable of admitting they're imperfect you know. At least this time it's a little less absurd than when you did it with DRob, but there's still a line.

Holmes is the thug. Braylon has obviously been framed.
