Mangini explains Edwards trade

We're talking to Eric Mangini right now. He says trading Braylon Edwards to the Jets will open opportunities for rookie receiver Brian Robiskie. Mangini said Robiskie could start Sunday in Buffalo. So could Mohamed Massaquoi, Mike Furrey or Josh Cribbs.

Mangini said he had a "good talk" with Edwards this morning when he told Edwards he had been traded to the Jets. Mangini admitted the incident Monday morning involving Edwards punching Edward Givens outside a bar was a factor.

Mangini said Chansi Stuckey, the receive acquired is "smart with good hands." Stuckey was a slot receiver with the Jets and could split wide with the Browns.

"It's about us trying to build a team and continuing to grow," Mangini said. "It's not something that happens overnight. You look at it in short term, long term and something that's there to compete.

"This is a chance for Braylon to get a fresh start," Mangini said.
