Looks like doing hoodrat stuff with his cousins won’t be stopping Braylon Edwards from bringing those checks in this football season after all.
We don’t know how much he’s celebrating where he ended up and why though.
After failing to land Chad Ochocinco and Plaxico Burress, the San Francisco 49ers picked up the top remaining free agent, signing wide receiver Braylon Edwards to a one-year contract that reportedly is worth $3.5 million.
In Edwards, who is 6-foot-3, 214 pounds, the Niners get a big-body receiver who will start with Michael Crabtree. Although the prospect of two top-10 draft picks starting in Jim Harbaugh’s offense is intriguing, they won’t be together immediately. Crabtree is expected to miss training camp with a foot injury.
“Make no bones about it,” Edwards said, “I’m here to be the guy. I’m here to make plays. I’m here to complement whoever’s on the other side. I didn’t come to accept a quiet role. I’m here to make some noise.”
Sounds like he’s got the right mindset. Let’s hope he sticks to making that noise on the field and not in the headlines.
