NEW YORK (AP) — Prosecutors say they are discussing the possibility of a plea deal in New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards’ drunken-driving case, but it’s not yet clear whether anything will result.
Edwards said nothing during a brief appearance Tuesday in a Manhattan court. Defense lawyer Peter Frankel says he’s talking with prosecutors, but, for now, he’s preparing to file paperwork to keep fighting the charges.READ MORE: 1 Dead, 5 Police Officers Among 7 Injured In Suspected Gas Explosion At Bronx Home
