WARNING: If you do not like rumors or rumor-mongering, please leave this thread immediately for your own mental health. Please don't shoot the messenger. The following was provided to me by a legitimate source (not one of the previous Edwards asshats on this site):
"The talks are still on. The Browns are being cheap right now and have no interest in re-signing Edwards to a big deal. They are willing to take low compensation. They are asking for a conditional next year (high as a 3) and Danny Ware and Mario Manningham (who Mangini wanted badly for the Jets). They were asking for these same two players before the draft, but the feeling is they can get NY to bite now that they got Nicks and Brown in the draft."
"(I do not) know the status of the Giants response to this offer."
From the Giants side I don't think it's a good deal. We're not gonna pay Edwards 10M and shouldn't. I don't want to see Reese give up three players with upside for a one year rental.
Lets keep the young guys and let 'em develop.
is going to be Giants friendly. I feel like it's getting rid of bad Plax and his scary contract, and then picking up bad Plax's younger brother and giving him a scarier contract.
I don't see any "good Plax" in this. I think everyone is enamored by the one good game he had last year, against us, when Ross couldn't stop falling down.
it still counts
if he wants to accept 7.5 fine, but otherwise, he and the browns can go screw. And Braylon may actually enjoy that. NTTAWWT
It doesn't make any sense to me. They can get better value than Ware, Manningham, and our 3rd from the Jets or some other team. Unless the Browns are just stupid.
maybe he's not stupid enough to shoot himself in the leg, but I really don't see the difference.
what are we trading for a 26 year old for if we only want 4 years from him?
BE wants mega bucks...hmmm
We will never know until he gets on the field, which he won't if Edwards comes here.
"Manningham showed absolutely nothing"
I hope that that was a joke.
I don't want to get into this debate, it's not worth it, our guys are gonna be fine
Eric, can you get more details?
+ a third round pick. Three thirds?
Thats more than a 2 and a 5. If Edwards is willing to sign for a reasonable contract.. I do it. If not.. I don't. I find it hard to believe this has anything to do with compensation and everything to do with Braylon's contract.
nut up and watch our guys grow, especially smith in his third year

better pro than Braylon, I would say you are completely nuts.
you make shit up
who the fuck said that?
we drafted him for a reason last year, his potential is off the charts, he never had a chance to see the ball last year. Trade him before even getting to see him have a full camp? To pay Demps II 10 mil per?
