RFA Viking Ray Edwards

Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports it wonít be surprising if the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints or the Philadelphia Eagles make an offer to Vikings pass rusher Ray Edwards, a restricted free agent.

The Vikings have tendered Edwards at a relatively low $2.512 million. The Vikings would have seven days to match offers by other teams, or would accept the signing teamís first-round draft pick this year. In the case of the Saints, that would be the No. 32 overall pick. The Eagles have the No. 24 overall pick.

Re: RFA Viking Ray Edwards

not for our first rounder

his numbers are not that much better than charles grants and we obviously wouldnt keep grant for a first rounder

not a fan of edwards, he is good with the vikings but without kevin williams, pat williams, and jared allen....is he as good? i say no but thats debatable

i dont watch him enough to say otherwise

college football is well separated from professional football in ohio

despite many buckeye/browns fans, there is a lot of diversity in fans up here

however, minnesota plays in the NFC north while cleveland and surrounding areas play in the AFC north.....most people around here have no interest in the NFC

the only reason people had any interest in the vikings this season is because of brett favre anyway

nobody cares about the vikings otherwise

I wish that statement was true up here.

South Dakota is Broncos/Vikings/Packers country up here and 90% of the population here is a fan of one of the above teams. It got worse this year when Old Man River signed with Minnesota because more people took an interest in the Vikings. The Purple Pride up here was sickening. It made me want to kill every Vikings fan from here to Sioux Falls.

Ok, enough blabbering. I'm not really sure if Edwards would fit well with our defense. But I don't really know enough about him to make that analysis. If he's worth it, go for it, I guess.

i cant answer this for him, but IMO he isnt worth a 1st round pick

the potential of a draft pick is greater this year than the talent of edwards

Re: RFA Viking Ray Edwards

Well Voodoo, I must say like Canton has expressed I dont think edwards is worth a #1 I'd give the vikes a #3 and make them pay for his signing bonus, he played well in the post season but he's not worth a #1.. If no DT OLB is worthy of a 32 selection trade down for a 2 or a 2011 1st, trading down is more them economical, Jerry Hughes is a Monster and i'm sure with a few pick swaps he can be wearing a FDL in no time,
