Falcons released LE Ray Edwards
 
Falcons released LE Ray Edwards.

Atlanta signed Edwards to a five-year, $27.5 million deal before the 2011 season after he recorded 16.5 sacks for the Vikings in the 2009-10 seasons. He was replaced in the starting lineup after the Week 7 bye. Edwards recorded just nine tackles and zero sacks in nine games this season after notching just 3.5 sacks in 2011. The Falcons will employ a rotation led by Kroy Biermann. Edwards should be able to find work on a much lighter contract.

He never really was as good as his stats in Minnesota seemed to suggest. He benefited greatly of playing opposite of Jarred Allen and having Kevin and Pat Williams on the interior of that D-line.

Robison has been a better DE for the Vikes than Edwards was, and many in Minnesota were laughing at the contract the Failclowns gave Edwards two seasons ago.

Another great move by Dimitroff! :dunce:

Probably a lot like they felt yesterday when Lofton broke up a pass on a third down killing an Atlanta drive. Exactly what they said he couldn't do when they lost him.

Maybe he hasn't had the right stimulation.
He may need to play for a dynasty organization like the Saints.
We've been pretty good at reviving the career of former Falcons.... he might want to play for a real team.

Falcon coaching is subpar we all know that. I want Edwards given a shot. IF he worked out the plus is huge, and hes probably for cheap now.
..and if we sign him fast I am sure he wants to play his old team and will have a 2nd motor trying to kill ryan :)
Hell just sign him for that game,lol
