    The Cleveland Browns have agreed to trade troubled wide receiver Braylon Edwards to the New York Jets.

    In the deal, first reported by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Jets agreed to send key special teams player Jason Trusnik, wide receiver Chansi Stuckey and a pair of draft picks to Cleveland.

    In Edwards, the Jets obtained a receiver that gives rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez the legitimate deep threat that the Jets have lacked -- and a player facing an NFL investigation for off-the-field trouble.




    Edwards

    The league is probing whether Edwards violated the league's conduct policy following accusations he assaulted a friend of NBA star LeBron James outside a Cleveland nightclub on Monday night.

    Cleveland police are also looking into the incident.

    Although Edwards hasn't been charged with a crime, the league's conduct policy states that discipline may be imposed for "the use or threat of violence."

    Edwards has been involved in other off-field incidents, a factor commissioner Roger Goodell considers when handing out any discipline.

    In March, Edwards was partying with suspended wide receiver Donte' Stallworth in Miami the night Stallworth later drove drunk and killed a pedestrian. Edwards was not with Stallworth at the time of the accident.

    Last November, Edwards was fined $150 and given 30 hours of community service after he was found guilty of driving 120 mph.

    Edwards, in his fifth season, has 10 receptions for 139 yards but was held to no catches for the first time in his career in the winless Browns' 23-20 overtime loss to Cincinnati on Sunday. His best season came in 2006, when he had 80 catches for 1,289 yards and 16 touchdowns. But faced criticism in Cleveland last season for the number of passes he dropped.

    For his career, Edwards has 238 catches for 3,697 yards and 28 touchdowns.

    It's the second major trade the Jets have made with the Browns and Eric Mangini, their former coach. On the first day of the draft in April, New York acquired the fifth overall pick from Cleveland to select Sanchez for its first-round pick, its second-rounder (No. 52), and defensive end Kenyon Coleman, safety Abram Elam and quarterback Brett Ratliff.

    Stuckey, who won the No. 2 receiver spot opposite Jerricho Cotchery out of training camp, has 11 catches for 120 yards and a touchdown. He was a seventh-round draft pick out of Clemson in 2007, but missed his first season with a foot injury. Stuckey had 32 receptions last season, catching three touchdown passes from Brett Favre.

    Trusnik, signed as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio Northern in 2007, is a special teams ace and backup linebacker. He was selected as the AFC's special teams player of the week in Week 3 after forcing and recovering a fumble on a kickoff in the Jets' 24-17 win over Tennessee.

    Would you trade just for the sake of a trade for any warm body who has "DL" or "OL" on their resume?

    Because it's not like they haven't picked up warm bodies with that on their resume already.
