The abrupt decision of the Atlanta Falcons to release defensive end Ray Edwards has sparked speculation that something happened to prompt the decision.

Per a league source, it was simply a numbers game.

Edwards no longer was a starter. The source says that the Falcons opted to go with other players — especially since younger players are more suited to playing special teams.

The Falcons will be on the hook for Edwards’ remaining base salary of $1.23 million if no one claims his contract on waivers. Given the importance of rushing the passer, it wouldn’t be a complete shock if someone does.

Where are you all getting the 3 m from?

If he could rush the passer, he wouldn't have been cut. I guess common sense isn't everyones strong point.
