Owner: Edwards let everyone down

September 24, 2010

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson says wide receiver Braylon Edwards has let himself and the team down as a result of his drunken-driving arrest Tuesday morning.

Johnson said Thursday that he has spoken to Edwards "three or four times" since and told him his actions were "not acceptable, Braylon. I'm disappointed."

Edwards was arraigned Tuesday on drunken-driving charges after a breath test showed he had a blood-alcohol level twice the legal threshold when he was stopped on Manhattan's West Side, prosecutors said. Edwards apologized to the team Wednesday.
