Something that slipped under the radar this weekend with all of the Maurice Clarett stuff going on at the combine is that Braylon Edwards jumped in with a group of running backs for the bench press repititions evaluation (receivers are not required to participate in the bench press) unannounced and then proceeded to bust out 22 reps at 225 lbs. Apparently, NFL execs who were in attendance were initially quite confused by Edwards' move but then were so impressed with his feat of strength that they gave him a standing ovation upon the completion of his workout. Then former FSU QB Adrian McPherson followed Edwards' lead and jumped on the bench as well and knocked out 23 reps. My guess is that McPherson must've had a bet going with Edwards on who could do more reps. The lesson here of course is...never bet against a convicted gambler.
In more combine news, Maurice Clarett's lawyer and "most trusted confidant" (his words) is none other than David Kenner. For those of you not familiar with Mr. Kenner, he was the lead attorney for Suge Knight and Death Row Records during the mid-to-late nineties. No wonder Clarett ran a 4.82, he was wearing a bulletproof vest and carrying a glock...I hear its really tough to run with a gun in your waistband.
