Report: Ray Edwards works out for Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks might not be done stocking up for their voyage into the NFC playoffs.

The team worked out free-agent pass rusher Ray Edwards on Monday, one month after the defensive end was released by the Atlanta Falcons, according to Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee.

Edwards also worked out earlier this month for the San Francisco 49ers, according to reports, but the Seahawks' NFC West rivals made no move to sign the 27-year-old defender.

The Falcons gave up on after Edwards after he recorded just nine tackles and no sacks through nine games this season.

Fox Sports insider and NFL Network contributor Jay Glazer reported last month the Falcons also lost patience with Edwards after he refused to join a team gathering following Atlanta's Week 10 loss to the New Orleans Saints. This reportedly took place with Falcons owner Arthur Blank and general manager Thomas Dimitroff present and contributed to Edwards' release, as did the emergence of Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann.

Being out of work can do wonders for one's attitude toward a potential employer, and Edwards likely would jump at the chance to join Seattle's young and athletic defensive line. Whether or not the Seahawks will bite remains to be seen.
