Ray Edwards

We worked Edwards out today. Would be a nice signing depending on the cost

Sorry if its been posted but I didn't see it.
God Dammit.


That means something happened.


Aldon probably had to get pumped for chugging a bottle of Wild Turkey or something.

I do not have any information, but I fear that Aldon may have a bad shoulder.

He was held out of practice for a couple of days and he seemed a bit hesitant in the Rams game.

I hope not, but I do have the fear.
Maybe they're finally seeing we could use depth at OLB with a big run to the playoffs starting. Or maybe cutting Dobbs?

tuesday is the typical day to work out street free agents, i wouldnt read too much into it.
They're just preparing for the inevitable.
Hope 99 is not hurt.

If he cant kick don't cur
Could be the bad mojo karma upon us.

Meh... whateverz... not goin' anywhere anyway, Gilbert.


Jay Glazer reported Sunday the Falcons parted ways with Edwards on Monday because he refused to join a team gathering following the Week 10 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

As Falcons coach Mike Smith called on his players to gather in the locker room, Edwards sat alone along the wall and ignored the request. He was called upon three separate times and refused to join until his teammates ordered him over.

Falcons owner Arthur Blank and general manager Thomas Dimitroff were in the room, according to Glazer, and the scene contributed to the decision to waive Edwards. The Falcons might have put up with this behavior in days of old, but that's not what they're about in 2012.

it dont matter because in a nickle scheme he can rush the passer and give aldon and brooks a blow.
The guy very serviceable and can shed light on the Falcons strategy and player personnel. I say pick him up in case we see Atlanta in the playoffs.
i'd be alright if they signed him. although he doesnt strike me as a special teams contributer and one of those guys would likely be cut to make room for him.

IMO, I think we should sign him. Parys and Haggans will likely be goners, we could use the depth. I think he would be a good pass-rush specialist, he has some good numbers in his career.

I remember in his pre-draft interview he wanted to be drafted by the 9ers badly.
