2/1/2011 12:00:00 PM
Description: The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Edwards is "all but gone" from the Vikings.
Insight: Edwards has emerged over the past two seasons as part of the Vikings' talent-laden line and appears ready to test free agency coming off 16.5 total sacks in the past two years. Still just 26 years old, he should find plenty of interest whenever free agency opens. (RapidDraft.com)
 
12/1/2010 2:04:00 PM
Description: 1500 ESPN.com's Tom Pelissero reports Vikings' head coach Leslie Frazier said Edwards (ankle) has a "borderline" high ankle sprain but still has a chance to play on Sunday against the Bills.
Insight: If Edwards is able to play, he would almost certainly be limited. Brian Robison may have a significant role this week. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/28/2010 3:21:00 PM
Description: Vikings DE Ray Edwards limped off the field late in the first half of Sunday's Week 12 game vs. Washington with some sort of leg injury.
Insight: The scary part is that Edwards couldn't even limp off under his own power. He needed assistance to make it to the sidelines and is considered questionable to return in the second half.
 
6/14/2010 3:11:00 PM
Description: Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports, via Twitter, that Edwards has signed a one-year, $2.521 million deal with the Vikings.
Insight: Edwards skipped all of the Vikings' offseason work, but now has signed his restricted free agent tender ahead of Tuesday's deadline. He had a breakout season with 8.5 sacks in 2009. (SportsBuff.com)
 
6/8/2010 11:58:00 PM
Description: The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports Edwards plans to sign his restricted free agent tender after he skips this weekend's minicamp.
Insight: Edwards has been angry this offseason since the lack of a new CBA took away unrestricted free agency for him, and thus has skipped all offseason work. He should be ready for training camp. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/10/2010 4:27:00 PM
Description: The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports Edwards intends to skip the Vikings' mandatory minicamp on June 11-13.
Insight: Edwards has yet to sign his restricted free agent tender, and the deadline for him to do so is June 15. He probably won't go so far as to skip training camp, but it is possible. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/21/2010 10:44:00 AM
Description: The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports Vikings' head coach Brad Childress is not concerned about Edwards missing the team's offseason program.
Insight: Edwards has threatened to sit out until June 15, the deadline to sign his restricted free agent tender. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/12/2010 9:43:00 AM
Description: The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports Edwards will skip the Vikings' offseason conditioning program and may skip OTAs if he doesn't get a long-term contract extension.
Insight: Edwards was one of the players whose free agent status was effected by lack of a CBA this year, so he's likely still a little angry he wound up being a restricted free agent. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/13/2010 11:30:00 PM
Description: Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer disputes a report that the Eagles are interested in Edwards.
Insight: Edwards is a restricted free agent, but the Vikings attached a first round tender. He had a nice 2009 postseason, but he has had consistency issues. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/11/2010 11:44:00 PM
Description: The Delaware County Times reports the Eagles could pursue Edwards, who is a restricted free agent.
Insight: Edwards carries a first round tender, and the Eagles could be unwilling to part with a first round pick to bring him aboard. The Saints are also reportedly interested in him. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/3/2010 8:48:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, via Twitter, that the Vikings have placed a first round tender on Edwards.
Insight: Edwards may still get some action as a restricted free agent, since he still has nice upside but needs to improve his consistency. (SportsBuff.com)
 
2/16/2010 11:18:00 AM
Description: The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that Edwards is unhappy he will not be able to test the free agent market due to the NFL's labor situation.
Insight: Edwards also reportedly said he thinks NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is overpaid. He may be overly optimistic about his own value, as the Vikings have apparently told him they will tender him a contract for 2010. That would most likely be a one-year deal. (SportsBuff.com)
 
1/20/2010 8:28:00 PM
Description: Edwards (right knee) missed Wednesday's practice. (National Footbal Post)
Insight: Edwards injured his knee last Sunday against Dallas, during a game in which he had three sacks. He could wind up being a game-time decision for Sunday against New Orleans. (SportsBuff.com)
 
1/18/2010 8:22:00 PM
Description: NFL.com's Steve Wyche reports Edwards (right knee) is expected to play in next Sunday's NFC Championship Game.
Insight: Wyche calls Edwards' knee issue a "mildly sprained" MCL. He will probably miss practice time this week, but he should be fine to take on the Saints. (SportsBuff.com)
 
1/17/2010 10:54:00 PM
Description: The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports Edwards (right knee) should after suffering a minor knee injury during Sunday's win over Dallas.
