NFL investigating allegations against Browns wideout

The NFL is investigating the allegations against Cleveland WR Braylon Edwards, who was accused of punching an entertainment promoter outside a nightclub in the wee hours of Monday morning.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed to the Cleveland Plain Dealer that they’re looking into the matter further.

Edwards could be in hot water with respect to the league’s personal conduct policy, which states in part that…

“It is not enough simply to avoid being found guilty of a crime. Instead, as an employee of the NFL or a member club, you are held to a higher standard and expected to conduct yourself in a way that is responsible, promotes the values upon which the League is based, and is lawful.”

First time offenders usually do not received disciplinary action, but Edwards might be considered a repeat offender based on his excessive speeding, for which he was forced to pay a fine and perform 30 hours of community service. Dude was doing 120 mph on the interstate.

So we’ll have to wait and see if this has any impact on Edwards’ status for Sunday’s game with the Bills. The Browns put up almost 400 yards of offense last week against the Bengals, but it was no thanks to Edwards who did not have a catch in the Browns’ overtime loss.
