Los Angeles Times - - NFL - wire re­ports

New York Jets owner

Woody John­son said wide re­ceiver Bray­lon Ed­wards let him­self and the team down be­cause of his ar­rest on drunk-driv­ing charges Tues­day morn­ing.

John­son said Thurs­day that he has spo­ken to Ed­wards “three or four times” since the in­ci­dent and told him his ac­tions were “not ac­cept­able, Bray­lon. I’m dis­ap­pointed.”

John­son said he’s more “sad” than em­bar­rassed by some of the off-field is­sues with his team be­cause they don’t “rep­re­sent who we are or who I want us to be.”

Ed­wards was ar­raigned Tues­day af­ter a breath test showed he had a blood-al­co­hol level twice the le­gal limit when he was stopped on Man­hat­tan’s West Side, pros­e­cu­tors said. Ed­wards apol­o­gized to the team Wed­nes­day.

Browns’ Del­homme is still not ready Cleve­land Browns quar­ter­back Jake Del­homme has not been cleared to prac­tice, mak­ing it more likely that backup Seneca Wal­lace will make his sec­ond start in a row.

Del­homme in­jured his right an­kle in the Browns’ sea­son opener. The team has not been spe­cific about the sever­ity of his in­jury. Del­homme was on the side­line in a walk­ing boot Sun­day when Wal­lace started against Kansas City.

Ravens, Kin­dle agree to deal The Bal­ti­more Ravens and top draft pick Ser­gio Kin­dle agreed to terms on a one-year con­tract, even though the linebacker will not play this sea­son.

Kin­dle frac­tured his skull shortly be­fore train­ing camp in July when he fell down two flights of stairs. The for­mer Texas stand­out un­der­went neu­ro­log­i­cal ex­ams from in­de­pen­dent doc­tors in Bal­ti­more, which led the Ravens to be­lieve he wouldn’t be able to play in 2010.

He was put on the re­serve non­foot­ball in­jury list Thurs­day.

Harvin prac­tices

Percy Harvin re­turned to Min­nesota Vik­ings prac­tice af­ter missing the pre­vi­ous ses­sion be­cause of an­other mi­graine headache.

Harvin strug­gled with mi­graines through­out the pre­sea­son but says he went al­most six weeks be­tween headaches.

Sea­hawks pres­i­dent

Peter McLough­lin is the new pres­i­dent of the Seat­tle Sea­hawks, leav­ing a sim­i­lar po­si­tion with the NHL’s St. Louis Blues. He re­places Tod Lei­weke, who an­nounced at the end of July he was leav­ing to be­come chief ex­ec­u­tive and mi­nor­ity owner of the Tampa Bay Light­ning.
