This post is coming a day after Patrick Kerney announced that he will be retiring from the NFL. Now with this departure, the Seahawks have a hole at the DE spot.Ray Edwards is probably one of top DE's on the market this season.This would be a logical thought by the Seahawks. So will the Seahawks be interested in Ray Edward, who has yet to sign a tender with the Vikes. He has until Thursday to sign a tender offer from another team.
Is Edwards worth 1st round pick in the draft. This what a team would have to give up if another team signs Edwards and if the Vikes DO NOT match the offer. The Seahawks have the number 6 in this years draft. Edwards does not get very much attention from other teams. The teams are usually more worried about Mullet Man and the Williams Wall in game preparations. This might be a reason why he had a great last quarter of the season and a superb game in Dallas.In 2009, he had career high in sacks 8.5 and in tackles with 43. Is this enough to merit the 'Hawk to acquire Edwards?
The gamble with draft are much of the time hit or miss. If the Seahawks go after Edwards for give up one of their 1st round picks, at least they will know what they are getting in return. If anything like this were to happen this would take place in the next couple of days. My guts says that Edwards will stay put with the Vikes, but who knows with the Vikes.Look at some of the crazy trades they have done in recent years(Moss and Pepper).
