Braylon Edwards Is Way Cooler Than You Thought

This morning's USA Today carries a nice story about Browns' receiver Braylon Edwards, who has some candid and decent things to say. Among the better quotes:
"This is another thing that eats at me. When you draft a player, you know about him from the age of 1. ... You knew in college that he was smoking weed and got caught one, two, three times. You knew that was part of his DNA. But you say: 'He's a heck of a player. Gotta bring him in.' So when he gets in trouble for smoking weed in the NFL, remember that it didn't happen overnight. Guys are not going to change because they've got money. If anything, it's going to enhance things."
