CLEVELAND (AP) -The FBI says it investigated reported threats to former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Braylon Edwards after he allegedly punched a man outside a downtown night club.
FBI Special Agent Scott Wilson said on Saturday that the Browns contacted the Cleveland field office about the threats shortly after the Oct. 5 incident. Wilson would not discuss the nature of the threats or who made them. He says the FBI is no longer investigating any threats.
Edwards was traded to the New York Jets two days after he allegedly punched a friend of NBA star LeBron James in the altercation.
Browns spokesman Bill Bonsiewicz says it's not unusual for the team to communicate with local law enforcement agencies about such matters.
