Report Says WR Edwards Not on the Trading Block

The Browns didn’t make any signings in the first weekend of free agency, but did gain two draft picks with the trade of Kellen Winslow. Some are expecting the team to put WR Braylon Edwards on the trading block, but according to ProFootballTalk.com, that is not going to happen:

We’ve received multiple inquiries over the past couple of days regarding the possibility that the Cleveland Browns are shopping receiver Braylon Edwards. A source with knowledge of the situation predicts with a high degree of confidence that Edwards isn’t on the market, and won’t be traded this year. That said, who would have imagined three days ago that tight end Kellen Winslow would be shipped to Tampa?

    They may not be shopping Edwards but they better be looking hard for wide receivers.

    We all know Edwards is a disaster as a receiver, he’s really better suited to play corner or saftey where he just has to knock the ball down rather than actually catch it.

    Furthermore he’s gutless when it comes to going over the middle which every DB & D coordinator in the NFL knows. They all adjust their coverage accordingly which really hurts the rest of the passing game.

    Wide receiver must be a top priority for Mangini & Kokinis.

    The free agents on the market for the most part are overpriced. For example, 25 million for 5 years for Goodman is very rich. I don’t blame Mangini and Kokinis for concentrating on the Draft, but I thought Derrick Ward was worth pursuing.

  4. Clayton says:

    All that we can hope is that Edwards will bounce back and find his 2007 hands. But I agree with the quote from ProFootball; this new regime really likes to keep us wondering. Don’t think for a minute that they wouldn’t unload Braylon if the price were right. As far as Goodman, if the Broncos want to pay that guy 25 million bucks over 5 years, let them have him.
