Former Las Vegas Raiders WR Bryan Edwards.

New Las Vegas Raiders general manager Dave Ziegler has made it clear that he’s not afraid to make deals in his first few months with the team. He’s already pulled off trades for Davante Adams, Rock Ya-Sin and Jarrett Stidham. He wasn’t done with those trades either.

According to Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Raiders are trading wide receiver Bryan Edwards to the Atlanta Falcons.

It was becoming more and more apparent that Edwards could be an odd man out for the Raiders as they traded for Adams and signed Mack Hollins, Demarcus Robinson and Keelan Cole this offseason. Edwards had many opportunities after being a third-round pick by the team in 2020. He started off last year strong and ended the season with 571 receiving yards and averaged 16.8 yards per reception. However, he would often disappear in games and had trouble consistently getting open. He has the talent to be a very good wide receiver but things just weren’t working out in Las Vegas so Ziegler decided to trade him away while he still had value.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Raiders are sending a 2023 seventh-round pick with Edwards to the Flacons for a 2023 fifth-round pick.
