Giants and Browns Talking Trade for WR Edwards


Mark Picucci of reports that the G-Men and Browns were recently talking about a Deal for Braylon Edwards:

According to Ken Palmer of the GiantsInsider the Giants tried to get Braylon Edwards. Here is what Palmer is reporting.

The Giants offered the Browns the two draft picks they received from the Saints last year in exchange for TE Jeremy Shockey: a second-round pick and a fifth-rounder.

The Browns countered by asking for WR Steve Smith. The Giants said no. The Giants then offered either of two other WRs: Domenik Hixon or Mario Manningham. The Browns said no.

The talks died down after that last exchange, though they could pick up at draft time.

My guess is that it all depends on Plaxico’s legal situation. If he spends some time in the big house the Giants will have to fill the void somehow. It could be filled by the 6-3, 215-pound Edwards, who surely wowed the Giants with his five catches for 154 yards and a touchdown against them last season.

    Good luck in your new eneavor, where ever that ends up to be. I hope the pressure is not too great for the hign/numerous picks i hope we get for you. I really like your 8-900 hundred dollar suits, and your superior attitude; too bad it never materialized on the playing field. I hope also that you actually get to call the plays in the huddle and not just be a thorn in the qb’s side, like they limited you here.

    Well, wouldn’t that be nice, getting something for Braylon “I can’t catch a ball” Edwards. The whining “you hate me because I’m from Mich” waste of talent and money would probably go on to have a HOF career elsewhere because he does not have the fortatude to do it here. I say get rid of him, you already got rid og the one receiver who COULD catch a pass, JJ.

    I see we signed another over the hill David Patten, a six team journeyman player. I see great vision in all of our FA signinngs, a vision right to the bottom of the division and league. More castoffs from other teams, way to go Mangini and Kokinis.

    I forsee a long, long painful season for the Browns fans yet AGAIN! If I am wrong, I will be the first in line to say it to the afore mentioned coach and GM, but I am not too worried about it. At least we did not give up the farm for that whiner Cutler, that in itself is a miracle. Normally we would have given too much for a player who wants out and a team that is in a bind to get something for him.

    So maybe I am wrong and maybe I should pucker up to kiss someones arse? We will see, I am not puckering yet, but maybe….just maybe…

    Well if that exchange above is an accurate rendition of the trade negotiations between the Browns and the Giants on Edwards, I have no complaints. I have no allegiance to Braylon, believe me, but the Giants were obviously bluffing with the initial offer of second round and fifth round draft picks when they later offered two active receivers. I have no problem with Edwards for Smith straight up, or Edwards for two draft picks no later than the third round. The two other bums offered by the G-Men are a waste of our time.
