Edwards Apologizes for DUI Arrest
New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards apologized to fans, teammates, and the organization for his DUI bust this week. Edwards was arrested Tuesday morning on Manhattan’s West Side with a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit. Edwards released a statement saying he hopes to retire as a Jet, and will work to rebuild his reputation. He was back on the practice field Wednesday at the team’s training facility and later told the media he made a “mistake” and would accept any punishment given to him. Jets head coach Rex Ryan says Edwards will play in Sunday night’s game against the Miami Dolphins, but won’t start as punishment for the arrest. Ryan also reportedly scolded the team during practice, telling them he’s tired of all the off-field distractions that have plagued the early part of the season.
