This weekend ex-NFL star Braylon Edwards denied reports he attacked a man outside a Detroit nightclub and, contrary to the oft-troubled Edwards' claims, TMZ has obtained video proving the out-of-work wide receiver didn't just attack a man — he delivered a cheap shot that would make a WWE wrestler wince. The video begins with the 6'3", 218-pound Edwards in the face of a photographer who allegedly shot footage of Braylon pushing someone else around outside the nightclub.  After Edwards screams at the guy, the photographer starts to walk away ... but Edwards chased after him, and while the unaware shutterbug had his back turned, Edwards reached down and ripped his ankles out from under him ... sending the poor guy flying face first into the pavement. Pretty rough stuff. The smaller photographer eventually got up and headed to a nearby police station, where he filed a battery report against the 30-year-old, reports TMZ. As for the extent of his injuries, TMZ said the man denied medical attention, claiming he only suffered minor injuries.  After the incident, Edwards adamantly denied any wrong doing ... tweeting, "The reports are blasphemy. Was joking with friends and a guy was filming us. I asked him to delete it, he said no. He wasn't harmed at all." Edwards' representative initially told TMZ ... the photog concocted the story in a shameless attempt to "take Braylon's money."  According to TMZ, the photographer is flippin' mad about the attack and plans to pursue his case all the way through. Hey Braylon. The Giants are looking are looking for a few good linebackers. Just sayin'. Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames.
