Re: Falcons released LE Ray Edwards

He would fit in Spags system to a tee, could take Smiths spot and do a much better job. He is a 4-3 player not a 3-4.

We've been pretty good at reviving the career of former Falcons.... he might want to play for a real team.

Maybe, but I fear that he would need a dominating opposite DE and a dominating interior lineman pair to work with in order to be a dominant player himself.

Since the Saints are far from having any of those - although Jordan has showed some positive flashes of what he could develop into - I would have to think that he wouldn't really bring anything different to the table than the likes of McBride already do.

I could be wrong, but I don't think he is the answer to creating more pass rush with just the front 4.

Atlanta Falcons Cut DE Ray Edwards: How Does This Affect the Team? | Bleacher Report

Interesting read on Ray Edwards, red flag has to be his off field stuff, like being a party animal. Maybe a change will do him well, he is only 27, and did have a nice career for the Vikings.

He was signed to a five-year, $30 million contract ($11 million guaranteed) in July 2011. He walks away from the Falcons with $11 million in his pocket.

Another great move by Dimitroff!
Much like (I think it was) Clyde Simmons who played opposite Reggie white and with Jerome Brown. He had a shoot ton of sacks one year with Philly. Following year he signed with Arizona, and as they went so did his career.

You'd be doing the other team a favor. You'd be getting absolutely no rush from his side of the line. I don't even remember the last time he had a sack.
