    Ex-'mate: Braylon wants to be a Giant

    Braylon Edwards hasn’t asked out of Cleveland (yet), but according to one of his former teammates the big receiver would “love” to play with the Giants this year.

    That’s what ex-Browns tight end Kellen Winslow said today in an interview on The Sirius Blitz on Sirius NFL Radio, Winslow said he thinks Edwards’ days in Cleveland are numbered, and that if they are the receiver is hoping to be shipped to New York.

    “For some reason I don’t (think he’ll play for the Browns in 2009),” Winslow said. “I know Braylon would love to go to New York. The Giants would fit him to the ‘T’ and he would have so much fun up there. I know he loves Cleveland but New York would be a great fit for him.”

    Later in his conversation with hosts Adam Schein and Solomon Wilcots, Winslow said Edwards “would love it there. He’s a city guy and, yeah, I know he would love it there.”

    The Giants, as you know asked the Browns about Edwards back at the scouting combine in February. They reportedly offered the second and fifth-round draft picks they got from New Orleans in the Jeremy Shockey trade. According to the same report, the Browns asked for receiver Steve Smith too, and the Giants countered with either Mario Manningham or Domenik Hixon, though team sources later insisted no players were mentioned in the talks.

    The 26-year-old Edwards is 6-3, 215 and had 55 catches for 873 yards and three touchdowns last season. In 2008 he caught 80 passes for 1,289 yards and 16 touchdowns.

    Kellen was pretty good friends with Edwards so I take his word for this, and other rumors were going around saying that the Browns were "swapping ideas with the Giants about Edwards."

    This could heat up as we get closer to the draft, probably something to keep an eye on.

          Yeah we kind of suck but were not that bad that we have 1 guy worth value...

          Offense - Thomas, Edwards, Steinbach, Quinn, Anderson

          Defense - Rogers, Jackson, Wright, Pool, Wimbley?, McDonald?, Williams? (Alot of ? here going into 2009)

            Winslow is a worthless thug with no brains and does not have a clue what he is talking about. Sure Braylon could wind up in New York, but not because that is where he wanted to play. Braylon and his fragile ego would get crushed in the New York media the first 4 drop game he has up there. He cried like a little school girl when the Cleveland fans and media got on him for butter fingers. He's mentally weak. I hope to God we trade him soon. We're finnaly cutting the fat out of this team(Bodden in 2008 Winslow, Shaffer and now Edwards) Lets get Fraley and Anderson out of here too.

              Splendid idea. 35 year old David Patten and Syndric Steptoe ftw.

                His contract is up this year he is gone either way. Not trading him would be a mistake regardless of who we have at receiver, and teams without star receivers all the time not to mention a 1st or one of 3 2nds would be used on a receiver.

                  If the Giants can make that move without giving up a 1st, then that's a real steal. You might not think so now, but if at any point Braylon gets a chance to lineup opposite Plaxico with Boss/Hixon/Smith/maybe Manningham than you've got a very very lethal WR attack. Then add the effect of the OL and RB's and the Browns are just straight up doing the Giants a huge favor.

                    Franchise tag trade, he won't just be able to leave...

                    If we get rid of Edwards and don't draft Crabtree we are going to have THE WORST offense next year...

                    If we KEEP Edwards SIGN HIM long term, AND DRAFT CRABTREE... We set up one of our young qbs to do amazing.

                      Braylon is Hollywood, he seems like someone who would love to play in NY, Miami, LA, somewhere there are flashing lights and a big market...The fit from a football standpoint makes sense, but I have always got that feeling about him.

                        Edwards doesn't want to be here why can't Browns fans get that through their thick sckulls? I see hoping against all hope worked out well for the last two scrubs you were routing for huh? Winslow's knees and his loud mouth are going to end his career sooner than later and Bodden proved he was a joke all along. Edwards and his fragile ego would get run over in New York. I'd take their 2nd 5th and Steve Smith all day long over Edwards.

                            I think that ultimately we do end up sending the saints second and fifth rounders to the browns with Manningham/Hixon for Braylon, unless of course plax takes a plea deal before the draft that guarantees he's back by the playoffs.

                              I would love for Mr. Dropsies to land in NY. That would be awesome. I hate Amani Toomer and all the pain he has caused me.
