GM explains why Edwards won’t start

WR Braylon Edwards won’t start for the New York Jets Sunday night against the Miami Dolphins, because of when he was arrested and not because of his drunken-driving arrest, GM Mike Tannenbaum said on 1050 ESPN Radio.

“We felt he didn’t deserve to start based on the fact that … not for the arrest as much as going out and being out until 5 in the morning,” Tannenbaum said Sunday morning as a guest of Ian O’Connor on 1050 ESPN Radio.

Odd comments considering the players didn’t have a curfew. In fact, the Jets didn’t have practice Tuesday — it was a mandatory day off for the players.

WR Patrick Turner will be on the field tonight for the Jets
