Fair or Foul? As Braylon Edwards headed to the team locker room, he placed a finger-gun to his head (Credit: Elliot Kathreptis via Lockerz) I am not sure now is the time to be pretending to shoot yourself with the events of Sandy Hook Elementary School and Webster, New York, still fresh in the minds of American citizens. As the Jets wide receiver headed to the locker room following the 28-9 defeat to Buffalo, he placed a finger-gun to his head, as if he wanted to shoot himself. While I am sure Braylon was just expressing his frustration, he should know better by now. As an NFL player, especially when you are at the stadium, you are always near a camera. Edwards was not a member of the Jets for long this year, but was with the team from 2009 to 2010. He was obviously frustrated about the game today and how he ended his season. Edwards had four receptions on eight targets as the Jets were shelled 28-9. I believe Edwards still has a future with the Jets as they still do not have a strong wide receiver corps. Unfortunately, for Edwards, he will most likely spark controversy headed into the 2012-2013 NFL off-season after his gesture as he headed into the locker room. What do you think about Edwards’ gesture? Fair or foul? The post Braylon Edwards puts finger-gun to head as he walked to locker room appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
