From Hamburg to the USA

Best time in New Orleans

In May 2014, Edebali entered the NFL Draft but was not among the 256 players drafted by teams in the NFL. Nevertheless, a few days later he signed a contract with the New Orleans Saints . Due to his good performances in preparation for the 2014 season, he secured a place in the first team. In September 2014, he got the first two tackles of his NFL career against the Dallas Cowboys . In October 2014 followed against the Green Bay Packers the first two sacks. He had 22 tackles, 2 sacks and a forced fumble in 16 games all season. In 2015 it was 21 tackles and 5 sacks. Before retiring from the Saints after the 2016 season, he played in 61 games for the team and contributed 55 tackles and 8 sacks.

Constant change of teams

After his time in New Orleans, a veritable odyssey began for the defensive end. He signed a one-year contract with the Denver Broncos in March 2017 , from which he was released in November 2017. He then signed on with the Detroit Lions , who let him go in December 2017. The contract with the Los Angeles Rams , which he signed in December 2017, was also terminated just a week later. The New Orleans Saints, his old club, accepted him instead, but also waived him in the summer of 2018. After all, thanks to the salaries, he was still able to build up a small fortune.

Return to Hamburg

Edebali made his last game in the NFL in the 2018 season for the Cincinnati Bengals , for whom he only played that one game. After short-term contracts with the Philadelphia Eagles and the Oakland Raiders , he decided to return to Germany in March 2021. There he joined the Hamburg Sea Devils , who play in the European League of Football (ELF). However, he could only make 5 games in the 2021 season due to an ankle injury. He took part in the final against the Frankfurt Galaxy, but could not prevent the 30:32 defeat of his Hamburg team.

Food Balls Series

As part of the EFL, Kasim also got his own small series in 2021, which was very popular and was also watched by large numbers of non-NFL fans. Björn Werner and Patrick Esume have also appeared in the series.
