Vikings, George Edwards To Part Ways?

Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards is in the final year of his contract and might not return in 2020, Alex Marvez of SiriusXM (on Twitter) hears. Edwards has been in Minnesota since 2014 and, this year, he’s helped orchestrate one of the league’s better defensive units.

In previous years, Edwards has been connected to head coaching vacancies, so it’s not clear whether the Vikings are looking to make a change or if its Edwards that wants to go elsewhere. Last offseason, Edwards interviewed for the Buccaneers’ vacancy that ultimately went to Bruce Arians. In 2018, the Bears sat down with Edwards before hiring Matt Nagy.

Before joining the Vikings, Edwards also spent time as the DC for the Bills and Redskins among his many NFL stops. With one game to go in the regular season, the Vikings rank No. 6 in points allowed and No. 14 in total yards allowed.

      There hasn’t been any good drama with the Vikings since the love boat scandal so they need to change that and bring in Rex Ryan.

    Wouldn’t be at all surprised to see the Vikings “part ways”
    with: Zimmer, Speilman and Cousins.
    Gonna need to draft, trade or sign a F/A QB as Cousins just has not gotten it done.

      Cousins isn’t going anywhere with that $28m fully guaranteed for next season.

    Edwards will be the “hot” Rooney Rule candidate making the circuit this off season

    • crosseyedlemon

      Edwards doesn’t need the idiotic Rooney Rule or Fritz Pollard Alliance endorsements to get an NFL job. He’s got a resume that proves he’s more than qualified.

    If we’re one and done in the playoffs, I’d like to see Zimmer replaced by Edwards as the head coach.
