Braylon Edwards, the 49er?
The NFL is an ever-changing sport with transactions occurring when you least expect them. Well, that is what has just happened to Braylon Edwards and the San Francisco 49ers.
This offseason, Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers decided to sign Edwards to a 1-year, $3.5 million contract, giving the all-pro WR a fresh start to be great, to be his old-self again. But injuries continued to plague the all-star and he went down with a knee injury during the Sept. 18 game against the Dallas Cowboys. After “recovering” from surgery, Braylon returned to action against his former team, the Cleveland Browns. Unfortunately, the injury lasted longer than Braylon would have liked, causing him to not be the athlete he once was. To make matters worse, Braylon had this to say on his Twitter account this morning:
“I was released today by the 49ers due to my injury that required more time to rehab and hasn’t allowed me to re-sync with the offense. I wish the 49ers organization the best of luck during the Playoffs. I will be working hard this off season to strengthen my knee and prepare for the 2012 season. Thanks for your continued support and for being such loyal fans.”
His injuries have caused him to have to cut the season short, and Braylon will no longer be a part of the playoff bound San Francisco 49er football team. Hopefully Braylon can ready himself for next year and for his sake, he better hope there is another team out there willing to take a shot on the Michigan alumni in 2012.
… and that is the last word.
