Braylon responds to Namath rip

By Rich Cimini

Braylon Edwards offered a relatively restrained response Wednesday when asked to react to Joe Namath's stinging criticism. Quoted in the New York Post, Namath unloaded on Edwards, saying, "Can't catch the ball ... Or rarely does. He has as many drops as he does catches.

This is how Edwards replied:

"That's his mouth, his words. I really don't think Mr. Namath knows me. I'm sure he's never followed me. He's a Jet guy and I was in Cleveland for five years, and I had one bad season. I'm not going to get into a back-and-forth with Mr. Namath. Too much respect. All I can say is, I don't think he really knows me. Tell him next time he's here, stop by my locker and he can tell me that."
