FLOWERY BRANCH –  Um, not really sure what to do with this, but let me give it a try.

It seems that Falcons defensive end Ray Edwards, who had a pro boxing match during the lockout,  is considering some sort of underwear modeling career. Check out the pictures –>CLICK HERE! 

Here’s what TMZ wrote about the photos. (I just think Ray had too much time on his hands during the lockout and got talked into these photos. I’m just saying . . . )

Cam Newton should consider himself lucky … ’cause the Carolina Panthers QB was wrapped up by a REAL-LIFE MODEL last weekend … when Atlanta Falcons stud Ray Edwards sacked his ass. 

Edwards has become the latest pro athlete to strip down for a skin-baring photo session … all for an upcoming, fully waxed 2012 calendar. 

Sources tell TMZ, Edwards hasn’t completely decided if he wants to pursue a modeling career — so he took these photos to “test the waters.”

If the calendar sells, Edwards says he’ll think more seriously about a career change — although it’s not like he needs the money … dude just signed a 6-year $30 million contract.

I’m glad this was a BRIEF article. I thought he was planning to be a professional BOXER but I guess I was wrong. But then, as an athlete, he is nothing more than a JOCK. I’m out of time. I’ll keep this SHORTs.

I guess he just gave up on playing defensive end in the NFL. .what an intriguing story, Ledbetter. .if you happen to hear anything about the team that a fan actually cares about, feel free to write.

I guess that makes sense. He’s already getting paid for standing there and doing nothing already.

does he need extra large undies? since he has 2 sacks?

The expression, “Looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane” has never been more applicable to a player than it is to Ray Edwards.

Wow. Isn’t this just swell news? In the words of Mr. Miyagi, “Your focus needs more focus.”

Maybe he should focus on a career as a DE, since that’s paying his bills right now (and he’s stealing money so far)

Between him and Dunta, we’re pulling an O-fer on big name/big cost free agents.

Maybe if he played in his underwear he could get more pressure on the quarterback!!!!!!!

He needs to focus on being a better football player (sacks, QB pressures, QB hits, tackles, etc.)!

Maybe this pretty boy needs to foucs on tackling QBS than admiring himself….just saying…trade him now…he aint all that tough anyhow..the only reason he had all the sacks last is because he had a better D end on the other side in Minnesota! TRADE HIM

Maybe he should consider getting a sack or two or three……………..

I hope it stays cold because I’d hate to say Ray “rise up.”

said on PFT: If the Falcons really focus and apply themselves they can win the priveledge of getting blown out at Lambeau field in the playoffs.

That pretty much sums up the sports landscape of the entire city. Every single team is a flawed entity.

Glad that Ray has the physique to be an underwear model, but seriously, if we aren’t talking about him because he did something amazing on the football field, I don’t care.

Wake me up when some team in this town is actually built to win something.

D Led here’s a jewel for you pass on to the Falcon brass. I tuned in to an HBCU contest last night. Norfolk State had placekicker boom a 50+ and 49 yard field goal with accuraracy and room to spare. I think he doubles as the kickoff guy and long field goal guy, pass it on to Dimitrof please, that Miami draft pick ain’t qiute working.

I am proud of the way they played last Sunday though, solid game. I don’t really care about style points.

**CORRECTION** Green Bay Packers kicker is MASON Crosby, not Matt Crosby as the caption under the picture suggests.

It’s just the Falcons. It’s not as if he’s plays for a team that’s actually won something…
