NFL, NY Jets Must Punish Braylon Edwards Swiftly and Severely

Ronald MonestimeCorrespondent ISeptember 22, 2010

Less than two weeks after the New York Jets made headlines for their questionable treatment of TV Azteca reporter Inés Sainz, the spotlight has been shone brightly on Gang Green again for an incident completely unrelated to their play on the field.

According to ESPN.com, Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards was arrested early Tuesday morning on Manhattan’s West Side for driving while intoxicated (DWI).  Police officers initially stopped Edwards for excessive tinting on his white Land Rover but Edwards’ bloodshot, watery eyes and the strong smell of alcohol in the vehicle prompted further investigation.

Subsequently, Edwards consented to and failed a breathalyzer examination where it was determined that his blood alcohol content was 0.16, twice the national legal limit of 0.08, leading to his arrest.  Among the four passengers in Edwards’ vehicle at the time of the arrest were teammates D’Brickashaw Ferguson and Vernon Gholston.
