Ray Edwards has always had the propensity to say something really stupid. Everything from saying that Commissioner Goodell makes to much money to profanity laced tirades every time he’s fined for an illegal hit to now this.
On May 20th at Grand Casino Hinckley Ray is making his boxing debut. Now while Ray should be commended for staying busy during the lockout, he goes so far as to proclaim himself a Former MN Viking.
Really Ray? Perhaps you know something we don’t. Because the last time I checked you received a 1st round tender. Now there’s no guarantees these tenders will stick under the new CBA, but if the league agrees to play the 2011 season under the 2010 rules (which indications currently point towards) you’ll still be Viking. That is of course unless some team breaks the bank for your services and is also willing to part with their 1st round pick. Think that’s going to happen? Us neither.
Coming out now to say you’re a former Viking isn’t doing yourself any favors with the league. Swing all the punches you want in the ring, but this antic is a nothing more than a low blow.
