Photo Story: Braylon Edwards Prepares for his Return to Cleveland

So, how is Braylon Edwards preparing for his return to Cleveland this weekend? Not surprisingly, by further alienating the fans of Cleveland that he spent almost all of his time in Cleveland alienating.

The latest is this quote, in the New York Post:

“I go in there and he told me that he traded me to the New York Jets and I couldn’t show how excited I was at the time, because I thought it would be unprofessional to do a dance in his office. When he told me that, I couldn’t get out of Berea [Ohio, where the Browns train] fast enough.”

Well guess what, Braylon? You aren’t the only one who was ready to dance when it was announced that you were leaving Cleveland. I seem to remember an entire fan base that was overjoyed with the news.

And in case you forgot, the Browns won their final four games last year…without you. Something tells me Eric Mangini probably would have done the fox trot with you right out to your car.

So, since Braylon Edwards is my least favorite athlete in any sport, I decided to honor his return to Cleveland in the most disrespectful and unwelcoming way I can think of: with a mocking photo story here on MSF.

And here’s the saddest part about it Braylon: even if you catch 10 passes for 300 yards and 4 TDs in Cleveland, not one fan in that stadium would want you back, and the Browns’ biggest weakness is at wide receiver.

That’s sad. It’s pathetic. And it’s all your doing, because you have zero humility and the self-awareness of cucumber. Maybe you’re fine with that, whatever. But you could have been a hero in Cleveland (remember 2007? You know, when you tried…) instead of a drunk-driving, pass-dropping douchebag now lost in the shuffle in New York. That was your choice.

My choice is to call you out for it all one more time as you come back to the city you so clearly loathed from Day 1. Well the feeling is now fully mutual, you jackass.

Oh, and on behalf of my friends in Cleveland, thanks in advance for what I’m sure will be at least a couple of these on Sunday…

Update: Our friends over at Cleveland Frowns have a much more mature and measured take on Braylon’s return to Cleveland and how the swap of Braylon for Eric Mangini has worked out very well for the Browns.
