Jets’ owner criticizes Edwards
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.
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.
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.
