Jets receiver Braylon Edwards was arrested for driving drunk early Tuesday morning in New York's West Side, reportedly possessing double the legal limit of alcohol. The wideout blew a 0.16 on a Breathalyzer test, double the state's legal limit of 0.08.
The report states the 27-year-old was arrested at 5:15 a.m. after police pulled him over for having overly-tinted windows on his Range Rover.
Edwards, who did have a passenger in the car with him, was still in police custody as of early Tuesday morning and was scheduled to be arraigned later in the day. Edwards had previously run into trouble with the law when he was arrested in Cleveland for assault, ultimately pleading no contest.
The Jets issued a statement saying: "We are very disappointed in Braylon's actions this morning. The Player Protect program is in place for our organization to prevent this situation. Braylon is aware of this...
Giants running back Brandon Jacobs has taken over the spotlight in New York, and not for good reasons. He's been upset since losing his starting job in the preseason, and he's asked for a meeting with team officials following his helmet-throwing incident Sunday night in Indianapolis. There had been speculation that he would request a trade, but later reports indicated that's not the case. In the Bergen Record, Tara Sullivan writes: Brandon Jacobs is on an unparalleled streak of selfishness, which for him, is saying a lot. Read more about that story, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Tuesday's Morning Mashup.
Speaking before the Red Sox' 4-2 loss to the Orioles Monday night at Fenway Park, Adrian Beltre said that he isn't concerned about reaching the 640 plate appearances that will automatically make his $5 million player option for 2011 jump to $10 million because he doesn't believe it will come into play. "It doesn't matter," said Beltre, who finished Monday with 603 plate appearances with 12 games to play. "I hope I don't have to use it."
Beltre has reached 640 plate appearances three times in his career, having last reached the milestone in 2006 when he totaled 681. He missed the mark by one PA in '07, and finished with 599 last season.
"That number was set because I had done it before. I had been close to that number for a lot of years. Since the season started I never thought about numbers. I never really thought about it," he said. "It shows I wasn't hurt, which was one of the things...
This was not the sort of team history with which the Red Sox envisioned Daisuke Matsuzaka flirting when they signed him to such great fanfare after the 2006 season.
Matsuzaka allowed four runs in 6 1/3 innings, marking the seventh straight outing in which he's given up at least four earned runs, as the Sox dropped the series opener against the Orioles by a 4-2 count. The right-handed issued five walks in addition to six hits over 6 1/3 innings. Though he left the contest with the game tied, 2-2, reliever Daniel Bard allowed both runners he inherited from Matsuzaka to score, thus giving Matsuzaka the longest streak of starts allowing four or more earned runs by a Red Sox pitcher since 1942-43.
The Red Sox mustered little offense against Orioles starter Brian Matusz and the Baltimore bullpen. The Sox pushed across just one first-inning run against Matusz, who then worked through the rest of his five-inning outing without...
Broncos wide receiver Kenny McKinley has been found dead, apparently the result of a suicide, according to FOX 31 in Denver. The 23-year-old McKinley, a fifth-round pick out of South Carolina in 2009, caught 207 passes and generated over 2,700 yards as a collegian. He appeared in eight games as a rookie last season before an injury landed him on IR. McKinley is the third Broncos player to die a sudden death in the past four years: In Jan. 2007, cornerback Darrent Williams was killed in drive-by shooting, and in Feb. 2007, running back Damien Nash, 24, collapsed and died during a charity basketball game.
