Braylon Edwards signed a one year deal with the 49'ers for $3.5 Million.
Best of luck to Braylon!!
It is ironic that you posted this because of your picture
I don't think that word means what you think it means.
Anybody want a peanut?
The most famous is never get involved in a land war in Asia. But only slightly less well known is this. Never go in against a sicilian when death is on the line. Hahahahahahaha hahahahaha haha...
his QB will be troy smith. I've always wondered how much tension there is between Michigan and ohio st players on the same NFL team.
I thought Alex Smith was still the nominal starter there? Neither of those two are NFL starters.
I thought Coach Harbaugh indicated that Alex Smith would start and possibly Colin Kaepernick later in the season?
I will die laughing if they cut Smith and give Braylon the #1.
Just came to the defense of Henne the other day, also in the past they (UM/OSU) said that only one week a year does it get heated.
Maybe next Harbaugh will try to sign Mike Hart and start putting together a dream team of former Michigan players!!
Come on Harbaugh you're falling down on this one.
Woodley just got marked as a franchise player, didn't he?
Josh morgan is pretty good, but braylon is the number one receiver on this team. Crabtree was really good last season but he's on the PUP list right now for his foot, and he might miss the entire preseason.
He is coming off another foot injury, the 49ers are bringing in a new offensive coordinator, and he will most likely miss all of training camp and the preseason. He is a step behind everyone else at the position because he hasn't run the offense yet.
I'm a big 49ers fan and love this pickup. Troy Smith is no longer on our roster so that's not a problem. I was sad that we let David Baas go but then we signed Jonathon Goodwin so it evened out and we also cut Nate Clements's lame-ass so we came out way ahead in my book.
It will be interesting to see if Braylon can push Crabtree as he's a bigger diva than Braylon and he hasn't even done anything the NFL, so we'll see if that has an effect.
Lose Nate Clements/Troy Smith, Gain Braylon, J Goodwin, and Harbaugh good offseason for Wolverine/Niners fans!
I do. I'm not a huge nfl fan, but I like to follow former michigan players. And I will not draft an osu player to my fantasy team.
San Fran has trolley cars so he won't have to drive back from any bars, so I think that's a win for him.
Heh, good point. Reminds me of the old saying "nobody drives in new york, there's too much traffic." Anyways, good luck to Braylon in San Francisco, they're gonna be on the upswing this year, I hope he can help that upswing.
Only $3.5 Mil? I thought he was demanding much more, which is why the Jets signed Plaxico for $3 Mil. That seems really interesting to me.
Aside from his stupid offend field issues, I can't help but think that Braylon would be the star WR we all thought he could be f he could just get on a team with a good QB. Frat he was on Cleveland with crappy qb play. Then the jets - don't get me wrong, Sanchez may turn out to be good but so far he has been nothing Special. Overthrows, lacks touch, tons of picks, poor decisions (all common for a youn qb, but still sucks for the WRs on the team. Now San Fran where it is either Alex smith or Troy Smith.
Troy Smith is out, I believe, so hoepfully Smith makes a jump this year to which Braylon contributes.
EDIt: I mean Alex Smith, not Troy.
This is a perfect deal for Braylon. When your value is low you always sign the shortest deal you can with the intentions of having a big year that turns into a long-term contract that will give you your retirement savings.
When I saw this topic, I was afraid it was going to be about some new off-field problem.
Given the recent months of news, this is a completely reasonable reaction.
even "kinda" offtopic? The dude played at Michigan. That's about as on topic as it gets.
Will get him in line and make him realize he has the talent to be one of the leagues best. I had a strange feeling he would end up there.
Hopefully JH can help in BE becoming a more mature individual. Looking at JH's past though, I don't think he will be a big help in that area. I wonder if he got a golden toilet in his new deal?
