FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms with free agent defensive end Ray Edwards.
A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that Edwards would sign a five-year contract with $30 million, including $11 million in guaranteed money.
Edwards, who spent the last five seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, fills a major void on the Falcons defensive line. He had 16.5 sacks the past two years and gives Atlanta another pass-rushing threat along with John Abraham.
Earlier Friday, the Falcons cleared $7.8 million in cap room by cutting defensive end Jamal Anderson and receiver Michael Jenkins.
