Falcons Sign Ray Edwards


The Vikings have been hit hard this offseason: first WR Sidney Rice signed with Seattle (joining castoff QB Tarvaris Jackson there), and now DE Ray Edwards has joined the Atlanta Falcons, who gave the pass-rusher a five-year $30 million deal, $11 million of it guaranteed.

With all the money they owe DE Jared Allen and DT Kevin Williams next season — $19 million out of a $120 cap ceiling — it’s unlikely they’ll be able to keep DT Pat Williams.

What’s next, the team moving to Los Angeles?
