NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — During his weekly spot on WFAN on Tuesday morning, Jets wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery joined Joe Benigno & Evan Roberts to talk about Braylon Edwards’ NYC DWI arrest.
“As a teammate obviously that’s something you don’t want to see,” Cotchery said. “It’s something that he’s going to have to deal with personally and it’s up to us as teammates to support him.”
“I know Braylon personally and I spent a lot of time with him, and I know that he has a big heart… unfortunately things like this come up, he’s going to have to learn from it and grow.”
Cotchery said Edwards attended a Monday night event in support of Cotchery’s nonprofit foundation benefiting underprivileged youth in Manhattan.
Cotchery said several teammates were there, and the event ran from 6:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. on Manhattan’s west side.
“We were just going around mingling with the fans, trying to help raise money for this cause,” said Jerricho. “We all weren’t at the same place at the same time.”
It’s not clear where Edwards was coming from when he was pulled over.
Roberts asked Cotchery if the Jets should suspend Edwards.
“I think that’s something we would have to keep in-house,” Cotchery replied. “At this time you don’t want to make anyone feel like an outcast.”
