Former Falcons defensive end Ray Edwards is close to joining the Seattle Seahawks roster, according to ProFootball Talk.
The 10-5 Seahawks worked out Edwards earlier this week and are expected to sign the free agent by today.
The Falcons released Edwards in November. Edwards, who was signed last year to a five-year, $27.5 million contract, played 25 games for the Falcons and had 3.5 sacks. The Falcons are still on the hook for $1.05 million of his $3 million salary for this season.
The Falcons could face Seattle, who have clinched a playoff spot and would play the Washington Redskins in the Wild Card round, in the NFC Divisional Playoff.
