Giants still considering deal for Browns WR Edwards

The Giants are still looking for a No. 1 wide receiver to replace Plaxico Burress, and the name that keeps coming up is the Browns’ Braylon Edwards.

However, the Giants won’t discuss their interest in Edwards. General manager Jerry Reese even told the New York Post in an e-mail that the team will not spill its plans to the media. But Reese did admit that the Giants and Browns talked back in February, but they didn’t discuss what other players would be included in the deal.

According to the Post, Edwards wants a new contract worth $10 million per year. Edwards is in the final year of a deal that will pay him $4.55 million this season.

NFL.com senior columnist Vic Carucci says the Giants are wary of Edwards’ high-maintenance personality and the fact he showed a penchant for dropping passes last season.
