It really says a lot about the state of your WR’s when you call the agent for Braylon Edwards and work him out. That is precisely what the Miami Dolphins have done. Edwards worked out for the team in Davie and initial thoughts are that the Phins are indeed interested in the on-field off-field problem child.
Edwards an top three draft pick selected on spot after Nick Saban took Ronnie Brown in the 2005 draft, has taken a bad path through the NFL. He exited Cleveland, the team that drafted him with legal issues to resolve and ended his time with the NY Jets an on-field/lockerroom cancer. While he was much quieter in San Francisco, Miami apparently need some help.
In March, the Phins parted ways with their own off-field problem Brandon Marshall so bringing in Edwards is kind of a head-scratcher except of course the fact that he will cost considerably less than Marshall did. The real question is can he make a difference on the team?
When you look over the roster it’s clear to see that the WR corp does indeed lack potential play-makes. With Brian Hartline still injured, the Dolphins need to look for a veteran to come in and compete, not named Legedu Naane or Chad Johnson. But Braylon Edwards? If Edwards signs, it’s a given that fans will start to outwardly question the decision and start asking why the team didn’t try and trade for Mike Wallace in Pittsburgh. Maybe they have and Wallace simply isn’t up for trade.
Regardless of the reasons why, Edwards tried out for the team. No word if the team is going to offer a contract.
