Edwards also could be in line for an NFL suspension for violations of league policies on alcohol and player conduct but will be active for New York’s next game, at Miami on Sunday night.

The NFL had no comment, but Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum said Edwards had shown poor judgment.

“We are very disappointed in Braylon’s actions this morning,” Tannenbaum said in a statement. “We are reviewing the information with the league and will impose the appropriate disciplinary measures.”

Tannenbaum noted that the Jets provide players with the option of calling for a driver to take them home if they are out having drinks.

He said Edwards won’t start Sunday and how much he plays against the Dolphins will be up to his coach.

Edwards had a big game for the Jets in their 28-14 win over the New England Patriots last Sunday, catching five passes, including a touchdown and two-point conversion. He was penalized for taunting — he danced in front of the defensive back covering him — after his 10-yard TD catch, and coach Rex Ryan clearly wasn’t happy on the sideline, shaking his head.

The former first-round pick said during the Jets‘ playoff run last season that he wanted to finish his career in New York. He signed a contract tender with the Jets in March worth $6.1 million and will be a free agent after this season.
