1. He's been injured. Everyone talks about his production dropping off for not playing with Allen and the Williamses, but the Falcons have some good talent, too, with John Abraham and Jonathan Babineaux, yet Edwards couldn't get naything going. He had surgery right before the 2011 season (I don't think the Falcons even knew he was hurt) and after the 2011 season again. He's just not the same player anymore.

2. Supposedly he was a turd, personally. This release had as much to do with his attitude off the field as his play on the field.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Maybe he'll restart his MMA career. He was 2-0 in fights during the lockout...

On a side note, former NFL player Herschal Walker might be added to UFC soon. He'll probably get one fight to prove himself, if he loses he's out.



49 years old

Really good player, but he's been injured ever since he signed w/the Falcons.  Don't know if he's worth it at this point, but if the money's right - go for it.

16.5 sacks in 67 games in his non-contract seasons.

He doesn't go on waivers. He has enough vested years and its past the trade deadline.

Actually, he does.  After the trade deadline, any player that is released from a team goes on waivers.

Also, for those interested, here is PFF weighing in on Ray Edwards...

I say go after him for the right price.  But is the room too crowded?  Is it just for one year?  We need to re-sign Bennett first and foremost. 

If we had Clayborn, Bowers, Bennett and Edwards next season, that's a crowded and expensive room.

Ya it looks like he does, this from PFT...

The Falcons will be on the hook for Edwards’ remaining base salary of $1.23 million if no one claims his contract on waivers.  Given the importance of rushing the passer, it wouldn’t be a complete shock if someone does.

If no one claims him (which I would assume no one does), I'd love to see the Bucs sign him. Give him seven games to prove he has some value as a depth player and give him two games to get revenge on the Falcons.

There\'s a very real chance the Bucs waive [Revis] before next season. At the very least, it will be a discussion worth having.

Looks like he is officially a free agent now.


November 14, 2012, 08:29 PM EST.
.

 Ray Edwards cleared waivers this afternoon and that’s not surprising given his contract called for him to be paid the pro-rated amount of $3 million for the remainder of the season.
 
That’s a big chunk of change for an underperforming defensive end that the Atlanta Falcons dumped after 1 ˝ seasons and roughly $11 million. Now, Edwards is an unrestricted free agent.
 
Edwards had 3 ˝ sacks in 25 games for the Falcons after starring opposite Jared Allen with the Minnesota Vikings. He could get a look somewhere but it’s more than likely he’ll be staring a deal for the minimum at this point.

According to FOX's Jay Glazer, the Falcons dumped DE Ray Edwards because he refused to join a team gathering following the Week 10 loss to the Saints.
Coach Mike Smith called the players together only to see Edwards ignore his request three separate times, refusing to join in with teammates. Owner Arthur Blank and GM Thomas Dimitroff were in the room at the time, which certainly helped grease the skids for his removal despite forking over $1 million in termination pay.
