Everyone on Twitter hates Braylon Edwards

I bet when Braylon Edwards(notes) woke up this morning, he had no inkling that today he would be 1) the newest member of the New York Jets, and 2) one of the hottest trending topics on Twitter.

He's both, though. For some reason, the users of Twitter have decided to pile on Braylon, speculating about all of the worthless things for which he might have been traded. Why this happened, I have no idea, but the Twitter users of the world seem to really, really enjoy poking fun at Braylon Edwards. Here's a sampling:

Personally, I think Cleveland made out pretty well with the Crocs/Snuggie package. It might not seem like much right now, but wait until Eric Mangini is on the sidelines, warm and toasty with full arm mobility, while his feet enjoy the comfort, practicality and fashion of a good pair of Crocs. Score.
