Big gift for grads:

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Braylon Edwards is putting $1 million toward the college costs of 100 Cleveland eighth-graders.
To earn $10,000 in scholarships, each student will have to maintain a 2.5 grade-point average, complete 15 hours of community service each year and avoid unexcused absences.
Edwards' foundation will provide mentoring and tutoring to help students along the way.
Awardees, who were recommended by teachers and principals, will be named later this month.
