    Good for them. Sounds like Mangini is trying to get back at the Jets.

    Doesn't matter where you go if you can't catch a ball as a WR.

    Kind of strange that this happened after the Crabtree signing. I mean was Crabtree a guy the Jets would target for next year and when that fell through they went after another big name?Afterall they had the tampering charges against them.

    Chanci Stuckey, a practice squad guy and picks to be named I believe

    I blame this dude for my fantasy team losses. He's done nothing but piss me off this year.

    Edwards is built like a prototype WR and flashes ability here and there but plays like Cory Bradford way, way, way too often.

    I think the Browns got a good deal on this. No one was going to offer that much for Edwards after last season and the beginning of this one.

    If Edwards could get going again in NY like he did two years ago though, man that could make NY strong, but that's a big IF.

    Cleveland got a few picks to continue to rebuild. Edwards was never going to be a great player for them again.

    This was the first thing I thought. Tampering charges on Jets for trying to get MC from San Fran. He signs with San Fran, and then all of a sudden the Jets make a trade to get WR Braylon Edwards. HHmmm!!

    You guys are missing the big story here! What is going to happen when Lebron signs with the Knicks in 2010?(Thats a guarantee, the media said so) Braylon gets shipped somewhere else? Or could this drive Lebron away from NYC?:stirpot:

    I just dumped this bum off my fantasy team. Thank goodness I got a good set of running backs or I'd be winless so far.

    Stuckey, which is like trading WRs. One has better upside though.

    LB Jason Trusnik

    2 draft picks.

    Have to wait to see what the two draft picks are. Judging by wanting players I would guess no higher then a 2nd rounder. What all did the Jets give up to make the move for Sanchez?

    Browns will have a lot of picks next year. Will be interesting to see if Mangini drafts well with them.

    It's a 3rd and a 5th and the 3rd could turn into a 2nd rounder if Edwards hits certain incentive stats. DOn't know what they are actually, but I think this was a pretty good trade for the Browns.

    Considering how poorly Edwards has played, great move. He needs to drop the 5 hour energy, it makes him drop passes.

    Tree-Fiddy and a sack full of door knobs.

    I guess the J-E-T-S think he will look better dropping passes in green rather than brown.
