Ed Hartwell CUT

The Atlanta Falcons today announced the release of LB Edgerton Hartwell.

What a free agent bust he was. That Achillies injury destroyed his time in Atlanta. I wonder if any team will take a chance on him?

Sure glad we signed Pierce that year instead of Hartwell. As we were rumored to be interested in both.

IndyColtScout 03-02-2007 02:15 PM

He was better in the 3-4. Maybe SF or SD someone like that gives him a look?

HawkeyeFan 03-02-2007 02:15 PM

What postion is he in a 4 - 3?

Shiver 03-02-2007 02:20 PM

He was a 'thumper' MLB in a 4-3.

At the time we had 'won' one of the premier free agents of '05. Amazing how things change. Now he is better known as Ed Hurtwell.

Absolutely. Pierce was coming off one big year in Washington and thats about it. Coaches raved about him but he only had one good year and we gave him a decent sized contract. Hartwell was definately the more established player at that time.

If the Achilles injury hadn't happened, you never know what you might have said about Hartwell. I was very high on both him and Pierce. I thought Pierce had higher upside, but Hartwell was ready to be his own player. Injuries wrecked it.

Good thing the Falcons completely guaranteed the contract, so he'll be on your cap for the next 2 years...

I was angry when him and Bell didn't sign with the Bengals that year but in hindsight it wasn't such a bad thing I guess.

Vikes99ej 03-02-2007 02:34 PM

Is Hartwell pretty well into his thirties now?

Number 10 03-02-2007 02:40 PM

who? .

Eagles own the NFC East 03-02-2007 02:41 PM

Maybe the 49ers because his old DC was Mike Nolan in B-More.

hes only 28, so i think SD is a good place for him

energizerbunny 03-02-2007 06:39 PM

he'll sign on for the vet minimum some where and play a couple more years.

yourfavestoner 03-03-2007 10:57 AM

I always thought KC should have signed him instead of Bell. Might have worked out better for all parties involved, too.

Jonathan_VIlma 03-03-2007 11:11 AM

I'd like to see the Jets pursue him as a run stopper in the 3-4. He was better then Ray Lewis in the system, only he didn't get the publicity that Lewis got, because he's not flashy.

ricky bobby 03-03-2007 11:15 AM

Does this mean the Falcons are looking for a LB in the draft? If they take Timmons, i'll be so pissed.

The Legend 03-03-2007 11:19 AM

i think he is a good 3-4 ILB and thats his true postion

  • WLB – Demorrio Williams
  • MLB – Keith Brooking
  • SLB – Michael Boley (Stud)

With 3rd round pick Jordan Beck as depth at all three positions. The team is fine at LB. With much more pressing needs.

yourfavestoner 03-03-2007 01:04 PM

Hm...if I remember correctly, Demorrio Williams was horribly inconsistent, and I just can't imagine him being an incumbent starter. However, inconsistency seemed to be the theme with the entire Falcons team under Mora. Maybe the new staff will get him to live up to his potential.

tjsunstein 03-03-2007 01:04 PM

The Packers need to get active!

but not with ed

TheChampIsHere 03-03-2007 04:51 PM

I could see the Niners, Jets, Chiefs and Chargers all going after him.

BlindSite 03-03-2007 07:18 PM

SD, NE, SF would probably be his most likely places. I wouldn't mind him in Carolina backing up Dan Morgan or starting on the weakside. We've had success with Atlanta linebackers who got shown the door ;)

what? Demorrio Williams was extremely beastly as a starter and the only reason he was benched was because Mora is an idiot and thought that the team was \better on D with Hartwell i nthe middle and Brooking at WLB instead of Brooking at MLB and Williams at WLb.
