Rashan Gary Responds to Braylon Edwards' Saturday Night Tweet

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Braylon Edwards was suspended from his role as an in-studio analyst for the Big Ten Network on Sunday, after he posted a profane tweet showing his disgust directly at a handful of Michigan football players after the Wolverines loss to 24-17 loss to Notre Dame.

Rashan Gary hadn’t seen Edwards’ post, but hearing about its content, it didn’t sit right with him.

The third-year defensive end who had four tackles and half a tackle for loss in Michigan’s opening salvo in South Bend says that it doesn’t really matter how he and his team play. Edwards should have been an adult about the situation and kept his comments civil in nature.

As Gary insinuates, due to NCAA rules on amateurism, college football players play the game for the love of it, not the money. They deserve a little more respect than they got from Edwards.

“I feel like, at the end of the day, we’re college students – we’re college football players and we love what we do,” Gary said. “We take it to heart. I feel like somebody to stab at somebody – I didn’t see the tweet – but to take shots at a player and you’re a grown man, I don’t think that’s cool. But it is what it is.”

For the record, Edwards has since apologized — albeit after the public announcement of his suspension and after Jim Harbaugh’s comments on the matter at his weekly press conference on Monday.

But the aforementioned tweet also comes hours after Edwards somewhat doubled down, moments after it was announced by the Big Ten Network that he had been suspended since Sunday, continuing to hammer his alma mater for the record versus its rivals.

Time will tell whether Edwards will return to BTN or even into the good graces of the Michigan football program after his latest debacle.
