It appears that Ray Edwards is not planning on being a Viking for another season of football and perhaps for good reason.
For well over a year, the Atlanta Falcons have been rumored to be interested in Edwards, as defensive end is one of their biggest needs as they aim for a Super Bowl. The Falcons didn’t address the need in the 2011 Draft but instead sold the farm (and then some) to obtain wide receiver Julio Jones.
They gave up their first rounder, second rounder, and fourth rounder from 2011 and their first rounder and fourth rounder in 2012. Keep that in mind… they do not have a first round pick in 2012.
So, back to Edwards, he has made it clear he will not play for the 1-year, $2.521 million offer he received when the Vikings tendered him as a restricted free agent.
