Braylon Edwards Pleads Not Guilty to Assault

Braylon Edwards has pleaded not guilty to the assault charge he faces.

Edwards was arraigned in Cleveland Municipal Court on Tuesday. The 26-year-old was traded to the New York Jets two days after he was accused of punching a friend of NBA star LeBron James on Oct. 5.

James called Edwards' actions "childish."

Edwards waived his right to a speedy trial and was scheduled for a Dec. 12 court hearing. His attorney hasn't returned a request for comment.

I'd be surprised if there was any fallout from the league this year, but like the Shaun Ellis situation of 2008, stay tuned over the offseason depending on how this plays out.
