2011 NFL Free Agency Rumors: Ray Edwards A Seattle Seahawks Target, According To Report

John Clayton is doing what John Clayton does on Monday as teams get set to sign free agents at a blistering pace. Clayton has been all over the Seattle Seahawks, taking stabs at what players the team will make a run at and what the roster will look like when the dust settles. Clayton took time out from hammering home the point that Tarvaris Jackson, not Matt Hasselbeck, will be the Seahawks starter in 2011 to discuss free agent rumors, including a Ray Edwards to Seattle projection.

Clayton believes Edwards, formerly of the Minnesota Vikings, may end up in Seattle, calling the Seahawks the lead suitor. He doesn't believe Seattle will re-sign defensive end Raheem Brock, leaving a hole at the end position.

4. Ray Edwards, DE, Minnesota Vikings: Edwards is a bigger name than Johnson because he has played on a high-profile Minnesota Vikings team, but he hasn't had a double-digit sack season yet. He's had eight and 8½ sacks in the past two seasons. Still, he has 10-sack potential, and for teams with desperate needs for a pass-rusher, Edwards could be the answer.

Let the games begin. With a small amount of time to sign free agents, rumors should come fast and furious, compounded by head coach Pete Carroll's tendency to quickly make moves. Seattle has money to spend and plenty of positions that need upgrading, making the free agency period an exciting time for Seahawks fans.
