Considering he wants out of a contract that would pay him about $5 this year, Edge apparently thinks he's still go it.

It will pay him 5 million if he's on the roster past a certain date. It's almost certain Arizona is going to cut him before they have to pay him that. They are holding onto him as an insurance policy against injury and out of delusional hope that someone will give something up for an aging RB that will be a FA in a bit anyway.

Edge is pissed because the money out there is running out and he's going to get "screwed" with a "low" salary.

If I were under contract for only five dollars, I think I'd be trying to get out of it too.

everyone thinks a new running back is the answer in Arizona, how many backs have left the cardinals to another team and been very good behind a good line. Edge would run very good with a better line
