The answer: basically nothing.
His $50,000 fine is approximately three days of salary. He’s going to be playing on Sunday and people have plenty of other reasons to rip the guy anyways.
He already punched LeBron James‘ buddy back when people liked James, and got wasted with Donte Stallworth before Stallworth committed DWI manslaughter — a crime which earned him a brisk 24 days behind bars.
So what was Edwards up to on Monday night in between ghost-tweets about practice and dedication? Just raging at Jerricho Cotchery‘s charity open-bar event — playing poker and double-fisting cosmos, the New York Post reports.
Next, he, Vernon Gholston and D’Brickashaw Ferguson hit the clubs til 3:30 a.m., knocking back double-digit drinks while petitioning the bartender to make them extra stiff.
Of course, Edwards thought it would be a good idea to drive home, and when he was stopped for illegal window tint on his Range Rover, he asked the cop, “We were coming from a party. How about I just leave the car and take a cab and go home?” And, “Why was I stopped for having tints if my driving didn’t lead you to believe I was drunk?”
Apparently, the answers to those questions weren’t relevant anyway. It was just another day in the life of Braylon Edwards.
