Edwards accused of assault, jealousy of LeBron James

Yesterday was not a great day for Braylon Edwards(notes). He failed to get his hands on the ball even one time, as the Cleveland Browns lost an overtime heartbreaker to the rival Cincinnati Bengals.

Later that night, though, Braylon did allegedly get his hands on a fellow named Edward Givens. The name is blacked out from the police report, but multiple sources told Cleveland.com that Edwards is the suspect. Here's the story that Givens, a promoter of some kind with an organization called Eighty81, told police.

The man then went to a local hospital for a black eye, a cut and a headache. Given Braylon's hands of stone, it's a miracle that he doesn't have a fractured skull. Zing.

Cheap jokes aside, that's just one guy's story, so be careful how much stock you put in it. The jabs about LeBron make it seem even more petty and vindictive, so who knows what kind of an agenda this guy has. I'm not saying it's true, I'm not saying it's not, I'm just saying that it's just one guy's story. Braylon likely has a completely different view of things.
