Braylon Edwards made good on a promise to himself to head back to school and get his degree, and all we can say is … congrats!!!
Braylon told us about his college comeback in January, and now –12 years after he was drafted in the 2005 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns — he got to put the cap and gown on and tell his Mamma … “I did it!”

The ceremony was held Friday night for Michigan athletes at the Crisler Center. Edwards was a STUD wide receiver for the Wolverines, scoring 15 TDs and racking up 1,391 yards his senior year. He went on to play 10 years in the NFL and was a Pro Bowler in 2007.
When Braylon left U of M for the NFL, he was just 20 hours shy of his degree. He reportedly completed 16 of them in the winter semester and now has finished up.
Now … it’s time to get to business.
