The Detroit Free Press is reporting that Braylon Edwards was involved in a minor car accident this morning. Normally this wouldn’t be news worthy as it was reported that this was a minor fender bender and alcohol was not involved. It does receive extra attention though because he is a free agent and he had a drunk driving incident last year.
Edwards, a wide receiver for the New York Jets, lost control of his 2011 Audi at about 3:40 a.m., drove onto the grass and struck a pylon, police said.
Edwards, police said, had a male passenger in the car. Neither was injured.
Stan Edwards, Braylon’s father and also a former U-M player, told the Free Press his son is OK.
“He’s fine,” Edwards said this afternoon. “It amounted to a fender bender. No one was injured.”
