Browns receiver Braylon Edwards will participate in the Bob Costas “State of the Sports Media” roundtable tonight in New York. The HBO special (it first airs at 10 p.m. tonight) includes Costas, Will Leitch of Deadspin, Detroit Free-Press’ Mitch Albom, ESPN and Washington Posts’s Michael Wilbon, the Kansas City Star’s Jason Whitlock, and the Chicago Sun-Times’ Jay Mariotti, among others. Braylon’s segment centers on the topic of “the internet and the impact of sports bloggers.” Now, I’m not exactly sure why Edwards was chosen to represent “the athlete” in this particular discussion, but I can only assume it’s because he’s a daily reader of C-Notes and has many good things to say about us. Either that, or he was already in New York and had nothing better to do. Hopefully we’ll get a ton of interesting tidbits regarding Clevo media, although they’ll probably come in very couched and nonspecific terms. I generally think Braylon comes across as one of the good guys, and beyond that, a very well spoken and educated young man. So, if he’s got opinions on sports bloggers, I’d sure love to hear them. – Vince the Polack
