Shutdown Corner - As a Cleveland Browns rookie in 2005, Edwards announced he'd give $10,000 in scholarships to 100 area eighth graders if they could graduate high school with over a 2.5 GPA and 15 hours community service. Of the 100 who were afforded the opportunity, 79 met the criteria and have begun their first year of college. I mean this story has to remind you of Scott's Tots right?  Good thing for these kids Braylon Edwards actually makes money and could afford to pay the $790,000. Doubt 79 computer batteries would have made them too happy. Good job Braylon.
