Ray Edwards: I’d rather be a boxer than a player for the Vikings

Ray Edwards AP

Vikings defensive end Ray Edwards will officially become boxer Ray Edwards on Friday night, when he makes his pro boxing debut. And Edwards thinks he may have a better future in boxing than he has with the Vikings.

“I’ve openly said I won’t play for the Vikings, because of the simple fact of my backup is getting paid 70 more percent than I am — there’s no way I can do that to myself,” Edwards told 1500 ESPN Twin Cities. “I’d rather do what I love doing. I love doing football as well. But if there’s nobody that’s going to trade for me, I will be definitely focusing on boxing.”

Edwards is not currently under contract, and as a player with five years of NFL experience, it’s not clear whether he’d be a restricted or unrestricted free agent under the rules of the 2011 season. But if he turns out to be a restricted free agent, and if the Vikings won’t pay him what he thinks he’s worth, Edwards says he’s serious about boxing professionally.

When Edwards said his backup makes more than him, he was referring to the three-year, $14.1 million contract that Brian Robison has. But he says that’s not a knock on Robison.

“I was happy for [Robison],” Edwards said. “He’s a definitely great guy. I love the guy off the field, love him on the field. Great teammate. I wished him all the best, because we both were up for contracts. So, I told him that more than likely they’re going to keep you because of the numbers situation.”

The truth is, when Edwards runs the numbers, he’s almost certain to realize he can’t make nearly as much boxing as he can playing football, and to decide to go back to football when the lockout ends. But Edwards is angry enough at the moment that he wants to punch somebody. And he’ll get a chance to punch somebody in the ring on Friday night.

    We don’t want ya back with that attitude

    Grow up man! Nobody can say or do anything while the lockouts on. That includes the Vikings.

  3. 2009kenny says: May 19, 2011 7:22 PM

    Will be an awfully awkward situation if the league operates on last years rules and he has to go back to the Vikings

  4. whatsafairway says: May 19, 2011 7:25 PM

    Hmm, a player whining about money…

    Deja vu anyone?

  5. tjacks7 says: May 19, 2011 7:26 PM

    Maybe the NFL would have less off the field issues if they allowed players to box during the season. Maybe they can install a program where when you get enough personal fouls, you have to enter the leagues mandatory boxing league. I’d pay to watch these guys square off.

    As a football fan, I’d rather Ray Edwards be a boxer than a football player.

  8. smacklayer says: May 19, 2011 7:33 PM

    Hey Ray, I got news for ya, it happens all the time. Tebow makes more than Orton, but you don’t hear him whining like a little beyach. There are guys where I work younger than me and been here less time that make more than I do. It is all about how valuable as a whole a person is to an organisation. And obviously you are less valuable than Robison.

    So you can suck it up, be a team player, negotiate as best you can, test the market if and when that happens and see what you can get. Or you can piss and moan and cause bad blood and likely lessen your value in the future. Or I guess you can go box, good luck with that.

    And he will get a chance to be punched by someone in the ring on friday night………that makes me smile

    Thats a wise choice with horrible QBs on the roster

  11. claymatthewsisonsteroids says: May 19, 2011 7:37 PM

    He should get a huge payday considering he broke the single season sack recor….. oh wait, he was only 20 shy….
    Good luck in boxing, you won’t be missed….

  12. benh999 says: May 19, 2011 7:37 PM

    Sounds like Logan Mankins. It’s not about what he makes, it’s about what others make.

  13. dirtytaco says: May 19, 2011 7:38 PM

    His first KO should be Jared Allen

  14. coleman121280 says: May 19, 2011 7:42 PM

    Ray Edwards was the weakest link on that line. He turns it on and off when he wants too. If he isn’t setting a bad example for the younger players on the team he is picking a fight w/ them on the side lines as he was for with Rookie CB Chris Cook last year. I know he could be a lights out DE. Just look at his playoff game against Dallas @ yrs ago. but it’s the fact that it took a contract year, playoffs, and so much talent around him to get his butt in gear is the same reason I DON’T WANT HIM BACK IN MINNESOTA.

    HOW’S THAT SACK RECORD COMING RAY? WAY TO PICK A FIGHT AGAINST SOMEONE A FOOT SMALLER THAN YOU……GABRONI!

    Obviously Robison was signed to that contract to REPLACE YOUR STUPID A$$. Don’t make it look like you don’t want the Vikings, THEY’VE MADE IT CLEAR THAT THEY DON’T WANT YOU.

    As a Vikings fan, you had your chance. You were on the team when Kevin & Pat Williams were a super force in the middle. Also on that line was Jared Allen, constantly demanding double teams. So while 2 guys were taking Allen, and 3 guys were handling the Williams’, all you had to do was beat a single blocker or a tight end. AND YOU COULDN’T . Good riddence. Hope you get knocked out Friday.

    Another worthless Viqueen who has an inflated opinion of his talent and value.

  21. PurpleRaid18 says: May 19, 2011 7:47 PM

    After the new CBA is set in place, he’ll be a UFA – thus he’ll be gone, that’s fine. He had a good career with the Vikings. He’s an above average DE and he’ll land with a team that is willing to pay him like so. Best, Ray.

    The Vikings can’t afford him, they already have a money tied up with players whose play doesn’t justify their salary (M.Williams, McKinnie, and Berrian) Robison is a solid player, and he’ll fill in fine.

    This team is going to get young, really quick. And quite frankly, it needs to.

  22. goombar2 says: May 19, 2011 7:47 PM

    Now his face can match his jersey

  26. eaglesfan290 says: May 19, 2011 8:01 PM

    Ok so he would rather be boxing for less than his back-up makes? Well that is certianly an interesting negotiating plan, get hurt with a non-football related injury and make nothing next year.

  27. johnnyb216 says: May 19, 2011 8:02 PM

    I can definitely see where he is coming from. I would rather mop the floors at a peep show than play for the vikings.

    Hey Ray, Thanks for opening your mouth again to remind me that you are my least favorite viking player. You sure won’t be missed when your gone and have fun getting beat up on friday.

  30. buckybadger says: May 19, 2011 8:14 PM

    @smacklayer, Tebow doesn’t make more than Orton. Orton signed a 2 year worth over 11 million while Tebow’s deal is less than 9 guaranteed over 5 years. Tebow as a late 1st round pick not a top 10.

  31. buckybadger says: May 19, 2011 8:15 PM

    He won’t make any money boxing and is going to regret even talking this stupid. Very few guys get the fights that make any money and this guy joined the game way too late. Stick with football, it pays the bills. Too many guys who are in their 20s who are way more advanced than you are.

  32. king7key says: May 19, 2011 8:21 PM

    Sometimes you play like it too…

  33. purpleguy says: May 19, 2011 8:25 PM

    Gee, I wonder if his stance will change much by Saturday morning when he’s urinating blood and scheduling an appointment to fix his loose fillings — all after getting paid what he’d make for a one week NFL workout bonus.

    overrated

  35. billinlouisiana says: May 19, 2011 8:50 PM

    Sounds like he’s making the argument that there needs to be a rookie wage scale that the owners want to me. With these kind of comments I don’t see the players staying together much longer.

    Oh Ray, u just gave me the greatest reason to call Vegas and bet it all on your opponent to smack u to ur next cheap job in less than 30 seconds into your fight. You have a great privilege to play in NFL for millions of dollars yet it aint good nuff 4 u. I wish no harm on u but hope u get pelted to the point u go back to a minumum wage job and dream how good u had it even when u could not play up or live up to your absurd outspoken expectations. U r not the MN defense, never were, never will be, always replacable. Nothing close to a leader or talent rich. This is going to be so funny watching u come crawling back to NFL crying and probably working for league minimum after u r destroyed in the ring.

  41. theytukrjobs says: May 19, 2011 9:16 PM

    Edwards is really making the Vikings regret new sewing him up long term.

    But seriously though it is a lockout and the Vikings want to know what his situation is before setting up a contract, trade, etc. It is odd that they gave Robison that contract, sure, but nothing is to say they hadn’t planned on giving Edwards a better one.

    Likely they do plan to trade him when they have a chance. Or put a first round tender on him.

  42. thefiesty1 says: May 19, 2011 9:24 PM

    Robison is much better than Edwards. I’m sure it’s frustrating for him but he’s being paid more than he’s worth already.

  43. capslockkey says: May 19, 2011 9:36 PM

    Hey idiot, do your time and play like you deserve it and you’ll eventually get your big pay day. That’s usually the way it works in the NFL, or any pro-sport for that matter.

  44. terrellblowens says: May 19, 2011 9:37 PM

    I think it’s less about the money than it is about respect. Guys with big contracts definitely get a lot of respect from teammates and other players around the league. To us fans it seems like overpaid crybabies wanting more money. To the players a big contract is about being recognized as one of the best at their position by their organization.

    But Ray Edwards is not worth anything close to top DE money. I agree that it would suck to be paid less than your backup though

  45. deeppurple23 says: May 19, 2011 9:59 PM

    Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

  46. ruvelligwebuike says: May 19, 2011 10:06 PM

    Ray, quit tamping down your self-loathing. You’re all talk and no action…you ARE Minnesota. As soon as you accept it, it’s learn to fail at everything you do with dignity.

    Best old Common Man bit. “Ray Edwards Sack Tracker.” They’d have a computerized voice come on and calculate his sacks after each game.

    “Ray. Edwards. has. 2.5. sacks.this. year. Only 5 sacks. per. game. to. break. the. record.”

  47. ravensfan4life52 says: May 19, 2011 10:23 PM

    come to the Ravens. we could use a pass rusher.

  48. mistahsingh says: May 19, 2011 10:26 PM

    Ray Edwards had 8.0 sacks this year and 8.5 the year before, if I was a Vikings fan I would be real PO’d about this.

    On another note, people on PFT are just making up stats/saying things arbitrarily. The guy above me says he had 2.5 sacks this year…NOPE. He sucks, etc, etc…NOPE.

    Those 16.5 sacks, 88 tackles, 4 passes defended, and 1 forced fumble in the last two years say otherwise.

  49. phillybirds says: May 19, 2011 10:41 PM

    Be careful what you wish for Edwards. Jared Allen wont be on your next team

  50. fground says: May 19, 2011 10:43 PM

    Ponder this list folks – sacks by the age of 25 – Top ten sackers of all time and Ray Edwards

    Smith,B 44.5
    Dent,R 37.5
    White, R 31
    Edwards 29.5
    Oneil, L 29
    Taylor, L 28
    Randle 22
    Strahan 18
    Taylor, J 16.5
    Greene, K 13.5
    Doleman 3.5

    Only 3 of the top ten all time had more sacks at the same age as Edwards.

    The Vikings might have legitimate reasons why they don’t like Edwards, but his productivity at such an early age is very impressive as evidenced by this list.

    As well, I would say Edwards certainly has reason to feel he’s been short changed or overlooked by the Vikings. For the life of me I don’t see how they value Robison more than Edwards.

  51. 22deuce says: May 19, 2011 10:47 PM

    robison is also 70% more effective than you ray.

    NOBODY would pay ray for what he THINKS he’s worth.

  52. therealfranchise says: May 19, 2011 10:57 PM

    Ray, there is a reason you never got a contract extension.

    Everyone in the locker room hates you.
    Everyone in the front office hates you.
    You open your mouth, and the fans hate you.

    As a boxer, you say you have better cardio, hands, and a bigger heart than the Klitschko Brothers. Please do us all a favor, get a fight with either of them and show us.

  53. 22deuce says: May 19, 2011 10:58 PM

    I never would have guessed he has 29.5 sacks.
    that is only 5 per year, which is so so

  54. stellarperformance says: May 19, 2011 11:08 PM

    If any player…I don’t care who it is….ever speaks this negatively about their team, they should be sent packing. No more respect than that deserves no more in return. What a jerk.

  55. fground says: May 19, 2011 11:13 PM

    it really is kind of sad how angry and depressed the average commenter on this site must be.

    I bet every sole that posted some kind of stop your whining Edwards comment spends most of their life complaining about the same thing Edwards is….”I’m not appreciated – all the other people I work with don’t work as hard as me and aren’t as good as I am.” Of course as I’ve pointed out – Edwards has stats to back it up and you’re getting out of bed tomorrow before 6 am to dig a ditch or something.

    Why on earth do you give a crap about how much money a football player makes or wants to make….it has nothing whatsoever to do with you. Now just get out there tomorrow and shovel like the wind!

    Commence the thumbs down barrage!!!

  56. wtfru2 says: May 19, 2011 11:17 PM

    I hope his opponent is a Vikings fan. Ray will get what he deserves, an a$$ kicking…..

  57. skins359 says: May 19, 2011 11:45 PM

    No question that football is a brutal sport, however compared to boxing it might as well be futbol. At least in football they give you a helmet and make head shots illegal. In boxing they encourage you to hit people in the head.

  58. cuzidid42 says: May 20, 2011 12:12 AM

    Edwards played with a defensive line which consisted of Allen and the Williams wall. For the most part Allen and the Williams’s drew the double teams and yet Edwards couldn’t even get into the double didgets for sacks. Let him go, he allready has an attitude and would be a locker room cancer.

  59. whatthehellisgoingonoutthere says: May 20, 2011 12:18 AM

    @theytukrjobs: a first round tender on Edwards? Now I’ve heard it all.

  64. weneedlinemen42 says: May 20, 2011 7:16 AM

    I know people like Jason La Canfora keep on talking about the owners just imposing last years rules, but it isn’t going to happen.

    Absent an anti-trust exemption imposing last year’s rules would be suicide for the league. Last year’s rules were intentionally punitive. They were designed to be for both sides, so that the threat of them would encourage a renegotiation of the CBA.

    Applying them this year would almost certainly result in every 4 and 5 year veteran who is given a rfa tender suing the league, and the league would lose every case.

    There is a very good reason why the league has not just imposed the deal that it proposed to the players during mediation. Any player that didn’t like it could take it to court and win. Therefore, the idea that they might simply resort to re-applying rules that were intended to annoy a lot of players seems a little bit unlikely.

  65. sneaky1632 says: May 20, 2011 7:33 AM

  66. vikesfan4life says: May 20, 2011 8:29 AM

    I really used to like Ray until he became an absolute tool this off season. He always was a tiny bit of a tool but he’s become a major tool and I personally as a Vikings fan don’t want this guy back on our team. He hasn’t lived up to his own hype. Let him go box and make 5 grand a fight for the next 5 years and see how much he likes it.

  67. winkeroni says: May 20, 2011 9:04 AM

    MDS – Pacman makes more money than any football player and all he has to do is fight a few times each year. I think he’s fought twice the past 6 months. Maybe Edwards is going to do a confidence building fight then a few months later fight Pacman because Floyd sure as heck won’t.

    I wonder how much money people make for climbing in the ring with Manny.

    Of course, you’d just get fired for using your tongue instead of the mop. Leave it to a Packer fan to want to be around semen. That’s what happens when your GM can’t keep his eyes above waist level in the locker room.
    Your QB skips like a girl,and the fans want to be around other men’s DNA.

  69. fwippel says: May 20, 2011 9:30 AM

    His backup just signed a new contract a few days before the lockout. Ray insisted on waiting for FA to see what he was worth to other teams. Problem is, FA hasn’t happened yet.

    His argument is disingenuous. He’ll get a bigger contract when a deal is struck after the FA period opens up, and he knows this.

    Lame, Ray. Really lame.

  70. geo1113 says: May 20, 2011 9:37 AM

  72. thephantomstranger says: May 20, 2011 9:42 AM

    The feeling is mutual, Ray.

  73. mnsportsguy79 says: May 20, 2011 9:48 AM

    Good riddance douche – I hope they do get stuck under last years rules and then sits on the bench behind Robison all season!

  74. ginnitti says: May 20, 2011 10:29 AM

    He made $2.5 million last year. Even a slight raise in free agency is more than worth it for teams in need. If Edwards wants out of town, other towns will be calling. This is a no-brainer.

  75. vadog says: May 20, 2011 10:34 AM

    Edwards is a pretty darn good lineman! He plays the run exceptionally well…he often is in the backfield before Allen on passing downs, which means he takes on the blocking back, freeing up Allen to get to the Quarterback!

    Robinson is as good a pass rusher as Edwards, however, he is nowhere as competent in stopping the run. Thus, Edwards is the better all around player and should be a priority in resigning. I disagree that Robinson should have gotten a big payday before Robinson. However, with the need to sign Rice and Peterson to long-term deals, as well as getting Ponder signed, there just may not be enough $$ to go around.

    His one fault? He talks too much!!

  76. packerrube13 says: May 20, 2011 10:35 AM

    Fground,

    Less than 6 sacks per season on average, How is it that the stats “back him up” exactly? He had Jared and the Williams Wall, and yet couldn’t generate more heat against single coverage? I hope your precious Vikings overpay this “elite” Defensive end then…

    Way to be a homer.

    ________________

    He was a restricted free agent and the Vikings put a first round tender on him. Anyone who signs him has to give the Vikings a first round pick, unless the new CBA makes him unrestricted. If he isn’t unrestricted, he isn’t going to play and he isn’t going to make a cent and no one is ever going to notice.

    Meaningless. You could find 100 other players who had more sacks than Ray Edwards by the age of 25 but they didn’t wind up in the top 10 all time. By the way, Chris Doleman played out of position at linebacker his first two seasons when he only had 3.5 sacks. When they moved him to DE, he made Ray Edwards look like goombar2.

    Nice one Packer fan! You go ahead and earn that $8/hr by having the honor of cleaning up toilets at your sacred Lambeau. I will gladly be the long snappers backup and earn $350k a year at any place the Vikings play. You win I guess…

    “Ted” IFind it odd that you go out of your way to find out such personal information about Thompson. I’m a Packer Fan and all I know and care about is that he is a World Champion GM. But you go deeper. You know about his days as a young man apparently. You know about his locker room antics. Odd. Of course its pure jealousy at the least but is it more then that? Why so much mention of the World Champions sexuality? I think we are starting to understand more and more from each of Ted Sheckler’s posts exactly what torture it is to be a fan of the rebuilding Minnesota Vikings.

    There is no underlying motive to my talk of TT’S alternative lifestyle.

    It gets you ginks all filed up. That is my motive for this. How many of you fell for it?

    What I find telling is that your(super) life and well being are tied up in sports teams. You are a fan. You didn’t accomplish anything. You watched 53 perform for your entertainment.
    If the Packers lose the SB, you cry yourself to sleep, right? Get your priorities straight. It’s a game, not life or death.

    By the way, I found out from a reliable source that TT’s nickname on the Oilers was “Tonsils”. He had a remarkable quality of no gag reflex.

    Where in the world did you get that out of my post? Life or death? Accomplishing anything? I mentioned Thompson was a world champion, not I. Cry myself to sleep? Again, where in my post did you get that?

    Well, I do agree with Edwards on one issue. He would rather box than play for the Vikings, and I would rather him box then play for the Vikings too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So, you’re suggesting that the last time the Vikings were a quality, championship-caliber team was 1984…..

    Quick, Viking fans, what is the 1984 season known as?

    Ironically, 2010 marks only the second time (’90 being the other one) the Vikings were last in the division since that ’84 last-place finish.

    Reeeaaaallllly confused on your train of thought here. Quit panting, dog-boy, and try to use the human mind you supposedly have.

    No it was in the 70’s. They stink just like the Cubs stink. They simply do not have the “it ” factor.

    I’d rather Ray Edwards was (is) a boxer than a player for the Vikings too! He’s just as good a boxer as he is at being a defensive end, very unspectacular and extremely average on his best day!

    @claymatthewsisonsteroids: He was actually 14 and a half sacks behind the all- time record, but i like your math. Edwards did have 8 sacks with two games missed last year which is pretty good actually. But honestly i dont care about the vikes or Edwards. Just wanted to clear you up on your facts.
