Next Sunday will be the first real debut of Braylon Edwards wearing a San Francisco 49ers jersey and playing for one of the hottest teams in the NFC. Edwards was drafted in 2005 by the Cleveland Browns where he made numerous promises that he was unable to keep. Frankly, he was drafted to a poor team, so broken promises just came with the territory of playing for the seething Dawg Pound in Ohio.
Eventually, Edwards was traded to the New York Jets where he proved himself more valuable in the post season, especially in the match against Indianapolis in which he caught an 80 yard strike from rookie quarterback, Mark Sanchez, to give the Jets their first points of the game. Edwards and his teammates would go on to lose the game, 30-17, but Edwards knew he had the potential for greatness.
When his contract expired at the end of the 2010 season in New York, Edwards was signed by San Francisco, where he now begins his second attempt at a fresh start. Unfortunately, he is coming off a minor knee surgery and Coach Jim Harbaugh is working gingerly into a high powered offense that includes Michael Crabtree, Vernon Davis and Frank Gore. So far, the team has done just fine without the aid of Edwards in their lineup, but adding his name might, at the very least, make the blossoming Niners look that much better to their opponents. Whether Edwards can play up to the level his team is playing right now is up for debate. Sunday will give him that chance, when the Cleveland Browns (yes, the ones who drafted him) come to town.
