Falcons cut Ray Edwards

Recommended Posts

Even the best teams in the NFL have issues.

The Falcons, riding high with an 8-1 record, have released defensive end Ray Edwards. Jay Glazer of FOX first reported the move, and the team has announced the transaction.

Signed by the Falcons after the 2011 lockout to a five-year, $27.5 million salary, he has appeared in every game despite chronic knee problems last season. He has 3.5 total sacks during his 25 regular-season games, and none this year. He started four of nine games in 2012.

Edwards began his career as a fourth-round draft pick of the Vikings. He became an unrestricted free agent after spending five years in Minnesota.

Since the trade deadline has passed, Edwards will be subject to waivers. If no team claims his prorated $3 million base salary, he’ll become a free agent — and he’ll be entitled to collect the balance of salary as termination pay.

Can't believe some of you thought we overpaid for Charles Johnson

Too many people, honestly. CJ is currently one of the best rated 4-3 DE's in the league, and it's a shame that our fans are so poor at realizing it.

I'd take Applewhite over him, Edwards has been a complete non factor in Atl and was an underachiever in Minny on a DL where he was never double teamed due to the other 3 guys.

yep. he had perennial all pro jared allen on the other end and probably one of the best DT combos in league history in the williams wall.

ray edwards was along for the ride.

he was exposed in ATL.

oh...and he's always hurt (which is not the reason for him sucking).

Applewhites been hurt most of the year. Don't think either would get a lot of PT. I don't think Edwards is great by any means, but you could do worse, for a 4th-5th DE.
