Edwards pleads not guilty to charge
CLEVELAND -- Former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Braylon Edwards has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge after he was accused of punching a man outside a downtown nightclub last month.
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.
While with Cleveland, Edwards dropped passes, criticized the team's play-calling, argued with teammates and famously took a helicopter to a college football game in 2006 despite being told not to go.
