Ray Edwards Signs One-Year Tender Offer With Vikings

Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that defensive end Ray Edwards has signed a one year tender offer with the Minnesota Vikings.

Ray Edwards signed his one-year, $2.521 million tender offer with the Vikings on Monday after skipping the team's entire offseason program.

The restricted free agent defensive end was extended the offer in March -- another club could have signed Edwards until April 8 at the cost of a first-round pick -- but he elected to wait because he was unhappy about his situation.

Christopher Gates of SB Nation's DailyNorseman.com writes that the move was fully expected and that Edwards stands to be a valuable contributor based on his play last year. 

Edwards really came into his own last year for the Vikings, putting up 8.5 sacks in the regular season, and notching four more in the post-season, including an outstanding three-sack performance against the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Divisional playoff round.

Zulgad notes that the Edwards signing carries an added significance, as every Vikings starter is now under contact.
