The Big Ten Network announced this afternoon punishment for former Michigan star wide receiver Braylon Edwards for his controversial tweets about the Wolverines’ 2018 team. He’s being suspended.
Edwards, who starred at wideout for Michigan, took to Twitter during the Wolverines’ loss to Notre Dame to, basically, trash Jim Harbaugh’s team.
He called out multiple players and used some obscenities.
Edwards later deleted his tweets, but we screen-grabbed them below:
Harbaugh was asked about Edwards’ tweets during his press conference this afternoon. He had a strong response.
“First of all, it’s not true, factually. There’s nobody in our program who thinks those things about any player on our team, let alone the two players he described,” Harbaugh said this morning.
The Big Ten Network has announced that Edwards is being suspended indefinitely for a violation of the network’s social media rules.
The suspension went into effect on Sunday.

Edwards, 35, starred at Michigan in the early 2000s. He went on to be taken No. 3 overall in the 2005 NFL Draft. Edwards played in the league until 2013.
Michigan, which lost its season opener to Notre Dame, is 9-9 in its last 18 games. The Wolverines are set to have their home opener on Saturday against Western Michigan. The game is on FOX Sports 1.
