Braylon Edwards got called for an unnecessary roughness foul — against his own team.
The former Jets wide receiver targeted his own alma mater, Michigan, with a blistering critique, singling out two players and calling its entire program “trash” on Saturday. Two days later, the Big Ten Network has suspended him indefinitely.
During Michigan’s season-opening loss to Notre Dame, Edwards took shots at Wolverines quarterback Shea Patterson and center Cesar Ruiz in a tweet he deleted soon afterward.
“Ruiz is weak, line is weak, shea is scared, f–king Michigan offense is so predictable…..Michigan football is sadly one thing……Trash,” said Edwards, who starred at Michigan from 2001-04.
Edwards, who last played in the NFL in 2012, now will spend some time on the bench.
“Effective as of Sunday, Sept. 2, Braylon Edwards has been suspended indefinitely from his role at the Big Ten Network due to a violation of the network’s social media guidelines,” the Big Ten Network said in a statement.
Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh addressed the tweet Monday.
“I was disappointed a member of Big Ten Network would choose to attack the character of two of our players,” Harbaugh told reporters. “That’s disappointing.”
