Braylon Edwards had a rather harsh opinion of Justin Herbert.
Edwards, a former Pro-Bowl wide receiver, took to Twitter to share that he doesn’t think Herbert is a top-six quarterback in the league just yet.
“I don’t care who this offends…. Justin Herbert is not a top 6 QB yet. So many followers and gas artists but not a lot of research doers. Look at Herbert’s games last year, all the big games he had at least 1 pick and multiple cases 2. He is extremely talented but not there yet,” Edwards tweeted.
Edwards then doubled down by naming several quarterbacks that are better than him. The list included Matthew Stafford, Lamar Jackson, Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers, Josh Allen, Deshaun Watson, Joe Burrow, Tom Brady, Russell Wilson, and Dak Prescott.
Edwards, after starring at Michigan, was drafted No. 3 overall by the Cleveland Browns back in 2005. He played 10 seasons in the NFL, catching 359 balls for 5,522 yards and 40 touchdowns.
The Los Angeles Chargers finished 9-8 in 2021, falling just short of a playoff berth. Many are expecting this young team to take another step forward in its second season under head coach Brandon Staley.
After winning the NFL Rookie of the Year Award in 2020, Justin Herbert only continued to grow in his sophomore season, passing for 5,014 yards and 38 touchdowns.
