EDEN PRAIRIE (AP) -- Minnesota Vikings defensive end Ray Edwards has signed his contract tender.

Edwards was given a first-round-level tender worth $2.5 million for one year, but he waited three months to sign it. Edwards has ex-pressed frustration about losing unrestricted status in free agency, when the final year of the collective bargaining agreement began without a new deal.
