It seems that former New York Jet Braylon Edwards could be in legal trouble again. I saw a tweet from Braylon tonight that said he lost his phone and “someone else” tweeted something bad. (How often does this seem to happen, only to Celebrities?) I’m not saying it wasn’t, I’m just saying that it happens a lot especially to Jets or former Jets.
Yo…Lost my phone last night someone sent tweets. Deleted them and changed my password. Sorry for the mishap hopefully never happens again!

So what did he delete? Well I didn’t get the tweet but according to PFT:
“Damn. Get ya knuckles ready” and “Don’t fight if. You don’t know how.”
Per the report, Edwards’ friends got into an argument with the employees. The dispute made its way into the kitchen, and one employee was “sliced with a knife.” The wound required 14 stitches to close. Another employee allegedly was attacked with a fork. (Alas, the Placesetting Trifecta was not completed, possibly because Braylon dropped the spoon.)
Edwards reportedly posted the following on Twitter at about the same time: “Damn. Get ya knuckles ready” and “Don’t fight if. You don’t know how.”
Curiously, Edwards recently posted the following message: “Yo…Lost my phone last night someone sent tweets. Deleted them and changed my password. Sorry for the mishap hopefully never happens again!” (We’d like to think that, if someone found Edwards’ phone and realized they had access to his Twitter page, they would have been a lot more creative than “Damn. Get ya knuckles ready” and “Don’t fight if. You don’t know how.”)
Edwards wasn’t arrested and he faces no charges. However, the fact that he was present when the incident went down possibly could become an issue regarding his probation in Cleveland.
It also could take any remaining air out of the market for Edwards’ services.
This couldn’t come at one of the worst times as Braylon is trying to get signed by a team. With legal trouble in Cleveland, New York and now Detroit will this scare off teams? I hope Braylon can get his life in order.
As much as we rag on the media for their coverage of the New York Jets, when there is an event OTAs, Jets fans want access to every practice. The next best thing was to read the players' tweets.

Ah the social media debate, I love talking about twitter in particular when it comes to the do's and dont's for professional athletes. Should Jets Players continue to use social media?
