Falcons Released DE Ray Edwards Due To Insubordination
The Atlanta Falcons are a tight-knit bunch this season, as exampled by this week's release of defensive end Ray Edwards.
Fox Sports Insider and NFL Network contributor Jay Glazer reported Sunday the Falcons parted ways with Edwards on Monday because he refused to join a team gathering following the team's Week 10 loss to the New Orleans Saints.
As coach Mike Smith called on his players to gather in the locker room, Edwards sat alone along the wall and ignored the request. He was called upon three separate times and refused to join until his teammates ordered him over.
Falcons owner Arthur Blank and general manager Thomas Dimitroff were in the room, according to Glazer, and the scene contributed to waiving Edwards.
