Memo: Eagles Looking at Vikings DE Edwards

Buried inside this story, is a disturbing note about every Giants fan’s favorite team, the Eagles. Here it is:

the Vikings only tendered a first-round pick to Ray Edwards, are they suggesting the same? There’s a report from Bob Grotz of the Delaware Times that the Eagles are expecting to make a push to sign Edwards. Edwards would certainly help the Eagles’ rushing opposite Trent Cole and would give them a blue-chip front seven player they desperately need to improve their defense.

Ray Edwards was a top DE last year for Minnesota – and the guy really got up for his rivalry games against Green Bay.  If the Eagles did somehow sign Edwards it would most certainly spell:

D – I – S – A – S – T – E – R

…for the Giants.

Now — there’s no reason to think that Minnesota will let their front 4 collapse due to a first round tender that the Eagles manage to capitalize on…. but the very idea that Trent Cole and Ray Edwards would be rushing Eli next year at the same time for 60 minutes gives me an ulcer.

Why this blurb was buried inside the “Gentle Giant” story I can’t be sure…. but as fate would have it does have everything to do with the Giants once you read between the lines.

    Disaster,? Noo not even close imagine playing on a line with jared allen pat and kevin williams. They made him have a nice year and thas the key word nice he diddnt have 16 sacks or nothing like that imagine tuck or osi playing on that line. He was alwayss in one on one kevin pat and allen opened things up tremendously for him that’s why the vikes don’t even care if he leaves he can be replaced

  2. he had a nice year, and by nice — i mean NICE. no question jared allen was relentless but edwards rushed and hit the QB constantly, every snap. good run stopper too.

    make no mistake, if he goes to the eagles the giants are that much more screwed

    The Eagles defense doesn’t scare me one bit, if they got Edwards, then added a stout DT, maybe got Darren Sharper, somehow got Dawkins back, and got a MLB that put fear into the opposing teams, then maybe. Otherwise the only thing that scares me about the Eagles is DeSean Jackson, and hopefully we hit him hard and often maybe even break one of his legs, it’s time to start playing REAL Giants football.
