Ray Edwards Set to Join the Eagles

As much as we like to follow Skins rumors here at HH, we will also be keeping a keen eye on division rivals. I'm sure most have heard the Brett Favre rumors, where he would be potentially be going to Philadelphia to back up Michael Vick, really Brett? REALLY.

But something more substantive came today when D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution wrote that the Atlanta Falcons will drop their pursuit of Vikings defensive end Ray Edwards, and that Edwards likely has a deal in place with the Eagles.

Ray Edwards is headed elsewhere: The Falcons reportedly have had a change of heart. They are going to focus on retaining their 11 free agents and will not be a player in the Ray Edwards derby. The defensive end is expected to land in Philadelphia.

Dan Graziano also chimed in on the potential Edwards deal:

"With Brandon Graham still a major question mark because of his injury, new defensive line coach Jim Washburn is interested in adding a pass-rushing defensive end to play on the side opposite Trent Cole. Edwards might have played in Jared Allen's shadow in Minnesota, but he's shown enough (I think, in particular, of a January 2010 playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys) to make teams think he can be a force on his own.

Ledbetter also went to say that the Falcons will put a lot of resources into re-signing potential Redskins target Tyson Clabo.
