Here's what Mario Edwards did after his sack

Earlier this week Sheldon Rankins said he had the best sack celebration of any Saints player.  But when Mario Edwards finally unleashed his, it would be “pure comedy.”  

Edwards sacked 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo late in the third quarter and showed off the move Rankins was talking about. After wrapping up Garoppolo, Edwards made a dipping motion, before consuming an imaginary item.  That item was supposed to be a chicken strip from Cane’s, Rankins said earlier this week. 

The celebration came from training camp where Edwards developed a reputation for his affinity for the chicken strips.

“We used to call him Caniac,” Rankins said with a laugh. “He used to go to Cane’s and (got to town),” 

Edwards said earlier this week he intended to do the celebration when he got his first sack but didn’t.

“The first one didn’t go that way, so when I get the second one, I got one in store for ‘em,” He said.
