The Vikings didn’t give anyone else Ray Edwards’ number when they assigned numbers to their rookie draft class, but maybe they could have. Edwards was tendered a first-round offer of $2.8 million, but said there is no way he will play for the Vikings if the lockout keeps him a restricted free agent. In an interview with the Star Tribune, Edwards said there is no way he would play for less than “my backup,” Brian Robison, who got a three-year, $14.1 million deal with a $6.5 million signing bonus.
