Because he's auctually playing for an NFL franchise? I would think

Depends on how he does with this courtcase though.

Hey Xfl...does LeBron have that much pull in Cleveland? Braylon punches LeBron's friend and a couple of days later he's traded...coincidence...I think not lol.

Seriously, I don't think it was Braylon's fault that his numbers dropped. His quarterbacks sucked. Anderson had a Maddox-like season in 2007...and just like Maddox, when teams figured him out his production dropped. Hopefully, ya'll will turn it around soon and give us some competition.

I think that ManKok wasn't all that impressed with him anyways. Edwards had one cinderella season and has done nothing prior to or after wards that warrants Pro-Bowl recognition. Boy, does this sound familiar? BE/DA enjoyed their time and the NFL proved to them that it was a one-hit wonder type thing.

As for Lebron having that much pull...I don't know that it was that at all. The timing is odd...but why would a 6'3, 200lb "professional" (and I use that word loosely) athlete feel the need to punch a 5'9, 135lb guy? Especially when it followed a game that BE was blanked in (well, he did show up in the stat chart with a drop).

BE's days are long over. In fact, they never really were true number. Even in his probowl year, he led the league (or was at the very top) in drops anyways. The difference came in the kind of coverages he was seeing. The NFL figured him (and DA) out...and now it's time for the Browns to move on. I think the Jets lost out on this deal.

BE is TO light.

According to Scouts INC:

Chansi Stuckey - WR - 6'0, 196lbs

2009 Scouting Report - Scouts Inc.

Comment: Stuckey has adequate size and strength with good initial quickness off the line of scrimmage. He is very quick in and out of breaks. He can locate the open area in zones with good stop and restart ability. He is exciting with the ball in his hands. He has good lateral movement and run instincts. His strength is suspect and he can be easily re-routed by physical press corners. He is a below-average blocker in the run game.

**************************************************

Jason Trusnik #96 LB - 6'4, 250lbs

Special teams guy with no "insider" information from Scouts INC. 6 Tackles, 1FF on the year and is a 3 year veteran out of Ohio Northern.
***********************************

Stuckey is rated (by Scouts INC) as a 57...which is an adequate backup...just below and average starter.

They were trying to trade BE before the season, and this is much less about LeBron than it is about Edwards continual collapse both on the field and off...

Sanchez and Braylon - hahaha - Mangini has done more for the Jets since he's gone than while he was there!' lol

Way to go Mankok - get rid of a playmaker for more scrubs, just like KW2.

Since 2007, Braylon Edwards has 65 catches and 3 touchdowns. Prior to 2007, he had 93 catches and 9 Touchdowns. He had one magical year in 2007, the same year as DA's magical year. He's done nothing prior to and since to be viewed as a true quality playmaker.

Kellen Winslow: Prior to 2007 (his one Pro Bowl year...with DA)

94 catches and 3 touchdowns
Since that 2007 season: 60 catches and 5 touchdowns. He's NEVER caught more than 5 touchdowns (2007) in a season in his career. He's pretty good between the 20's...but disappears in the redzone.

For his career, he's caught 13 total Touchdowns. That's his career...

Maybe we have different definitions of playmaker...but Kellen Winslow was overhyped...and so is Braylon Edwards. You have beat down the hype machine that was Derek Anderson (he's not hyped anymore) but continue to lift up the scrubs that have done just as much since 2007 (and before 2007) as Derek Anderson.

You can't have it both ways. Either all three are still legit pro-bowl playmakers...or none of them are.

Before the draft Cleveland wanted a 1st and Kiuwanuka from the Giants, and word is the Browns turned down an offer for a 2nd and a 5th and players.

Six months later, the Jets get him for Stuckey, Trusnick, a 3rd and 5th. Not bad.
