  • Quit on his team. The Falcons after a loss asked him to come into the team huddle and he refused. The players tried, the coaches tried and he didn't join the team's huddle. The next day he was cut. It was a big story earlier in the year.

  • He's 6'5 260ish. Has 169 tackles 14 passdef 33 sacks and 6 forced fumbles. Only 27. I wouldn' mind if we signed him for a year of two. Maybe a younger verson of Clem in the making. Plays and looks alot like Clems

  • Dude was useless for us, like another poster said folks tried to get him involved wasn't trying to hear it. But at the same time ya'll got Pete Carroll and he's a "player coach" if you will and could possibly get some production out of Edwards

  • If he can produce for the postseason and maybe into next season. It might be a steal. Pete made Mike Willams into a WR and almost comeback player of the year 2 years ago. Someone like Edwards knows he doesn't have many shots left after the crap he pulled in ATL. Get him for dirt cheap. Maybe he sparks Irvin and Clems. I don't see anything that would make this a bad signing. Our locker room is so tightly nitted and has that family atmosphere. One player couldn't ruin that. We did have Edwards, Winslow and Owens in that at one point lol Just saying. All 3 of those guys are the biggest cancers in the past 10 years.

  • He was a key part of the 2010 Vikings defensive line--a physical run stopper and a good pass rusher. Became disgruntled in Minnesota over contract talks and was ultimately replaced by the younger Robison. He is quite a physical specimen who took to boxing in the offseason while in Minnesota. Don't know why the sour attitude in Atlanta. It would be nice to have him in case we play against Atlanta. He'll play with a chip on his shoulder.

  • LOL, just Googled the guy. Judging from the images I see of him, he doesn't come across as a "no 'i' in team" kinda man if you get my drift.
    Seems preoccupied with other distractions outside of football that just concern himself.

    But if he wants to play and play well in Seattle, why not.

  • One thing I will say about this weirdo is he had a dominant playoff game vs Dallas when the Vikings made the playoff run up to NFC Championship vs New Orleans. I know that he was challenged by his coach and he responded BIGTIME in that game (On a DLine that included the Williams sisters and Jared Allen). Most of the time, he was a chronic underachiever and headcase, though.

    Whatever. Pete and John will do what's right. I have no doubt about that.

  • Apparently he's notorious for really rising to the challenge in the playoffs..

    If he doesn't get motivation from helping us win the first playoff game to likely get Atlanta, don't know what will light a fire under him

  • I've got to give defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier a tremendous tip of the hat after the defense's six-sack, 19-pressure performance against Tony Romo. Ray Edwards, especially, was a tour de force player. "I challenged Ray Edwards Saturday night,'' Frazier said. "So many times this season, we've seen defenses adjust what they do to change their protection to adjust to Jared Allen on the other side. I felt like Ray needed to step it up, and I told him, 'You have to be a difference-maker.' ''

    That was a career-changer, potentially, for Edwards and Frazier. For Edwards because it showed he can be a premier pass-rusher on the biggest stage. And for Frazier, who should be the Bills' first, second and third candidate for head coach right now.

  • Hawks should consider bringing Hargrove in for a tryout. Inside pass rush could use a boost.

  • Watched him when I lived back East and he played for the Vikings. Next to J.A. he was my favorite defensive player. I would love this guy on the team, but I hate hearing about how he quit on his team.

    NO THANKS.

  • I should add that in that playoff game referred to above, Ray Edwards sacked Tony Romo 3 times and Sidney Rice scroed 3 touchdowns.

  • I trust PC and JS. Who knows what really happened or why it did with the Falcons. But if our guys can do what they have done with so many others this could be a very fun trio of pass rushers.

  • I think this is a Jones replacement, as there was a noticeable lack of pressure from the middle against the whiners (or that was my initial impression anyway). I think we use him for a 'NASCAR' style nickel and dime package.

    The reference to Hargrove is quite apt, as he was brought in as a 'low risk' player after others had given up on him, and provided something of a spark. Perhaps he was not even in consideration - he probably isn't even in football shape, as he hasn't been on a roster since August.

  • The best way to keep improving is to keep teams guessing. We're doing it on offense (see: Pistol). This might just be another wrinkle on defense we're thinking of throwing in for the playoffs.

  • I like the way this sounds. If Pete can get this guy pumped up he can be a difference maker in our pass rush in the playoffs. I think we are one more good pass rusher away from being pretty much unbeatable.

    I imagine they are adding him to the list of possibilities. Edwards is arrogant, or at least was. I do like the idea of him being motivated to play against Atlanta but he'd likely get some stupid, costly penalties.
