Braylon Jamel Edwards (born February 21, 1983) is an American football wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Cleveland Browns third overall in the 2005 NFL Draft. He has also played for the New York Jets.

He played college football at Michigan, where he won the Fred Biletnikoff Award, the Chicago Tribune Silver Football as Big Ten Conference MVP, and became a consensus All-American. Along the way, he became the first receiver in Big Ten history to have three consecutive 1000-yard seasons and the third in NCAA Division I-A. He set most of the current Michigan Wolverines football receiving records.

He played four plus seasons with the Browns where he earned a Pro Bowl selection following the 2007 NFL season. Outside of football, in Cleveland, he was notable for both his legal troubles and his philanthropy. He was arrested for numerous speeding violations, but has upheld his commitment to sponsor 100 Cleveland area youths' educations. He followed that up his time in Cleveland with nearly two full seasons with the Jets.
