ESPN reports the Raiders gave up a 2023 seventh-round selection in exchange for the Falcons’ fifth choice in next season’s NFL Draft.
There were expectations that 6-foot-3 Edwards would help fill out the wide receiver positions in Las Vegas, but his rookie season was limited by lack of playing time.

Since then, the Raiders have shifted their focus from Hunter Renfrow or Darren Waller to a wide receiver on the depth chart. Edwards, who grabbed 34 of 59 targets for 571 yards and three scores in 16 games, was a solid fit for the team (12 starts).
Meanwhile, when it comes to the depth chart of Atlanta, they have no shortage of space. Only Auden Tate, Damiere Byrd, and KhaDarel Hodge remain for the Falcons after spending a first-round draft selection on Drake London from USC.
