Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News is reporting that the Giants' hopes of trading for Browns wide receiver Braylon Edwards are "all but dead." A recent Yahoo! Sports report indicated that a deal was "imminent," but now it appears the Browns' asking price (reportedly first- and third-round picks) is too steep for Giants general manager Jerry Reese's liking.
Vacchiano reports that the Giants have offered second- and fifth-round picks for Edwards. I'm not quite ready to put this thing to bed, though, because things could change if the Browns take Michael Crabtree in the first round Saturday. Maybe they come down on their asking price if they feel like Crabtree can immediately be a No. 1 wide receiver. We'll keep you posted on this.
Right now, I have to break away to write a column about what the Eagles are going to do at running back in this draft. Check back here in about two hours or so.
