New York Jets receiver Braylon Edwards was arrested on a drunken driving charge in New York early Tuesday morning.
The Jets expressed their disappointment in the receiver in a statement from general manager Mike Tannenbaum on Tuesday.
"We are very disappointed in Braylon's actions this morning. The Player Protect program is in place for our organization to prevent this situation. Braylon is aware of this program and showed poor judgment," Tannenbaum said.
"We are reviewing the information with the league and will impose the appropriate disciplinary measures."
The 27-year-old Edwards was pulled over for having overly tinted windows in his Range Rover. He was arrested at 5:15 a.m. after police smelled alcohol and administered a breathalyzer. According to the New York Post, Edwards blew .16 on the breathalyzer -- a blood-alcohol content that is twice the legal limit.
I didnt know this but the NFL has a safe ride program and Jets owner Woody Johnson funded another program called player protect. So he had 2 opitions all he had to do was make a call. These programs are at no cost to the player
