Edwards was the Ravens second round pick a few years back. He's a solid player, especially at stuffing the run. Wouldn't expect too much out of him pass-rushing wise. He took over the starting role from Trevor Pryce this year because Trevor just doesn't have the stamina to last the entire game anymore, but he came in on passing downs. I think it's a solid addition for the Bills. Looks like the 4-3 is coming to Baltimore sooner rather than later.
This is interesting though as it shows the Bills are moving to the 3-4 sooner rather than later. Bringing in Andra Davis as well.
The Bills announced that they were moving to a 3-4 earlier this offseason. Dwan Edwards probably doesn't offer the versatility of Jarvis Green (he doesn't seem like he's much of a pass rusher) but 3-4 defensive ends are pretty scarce so the Bills probably helped themselves out. Andra Davis should be a pretty decent starter for them as well. I assume he'll play next to Posluszny.
Hey, thanks guys for responding to this post since a certain poster didn't think it was good enough to warrant its own thread but has almost 30 post to it. I guess no one knows who Dwan Edwards was. I love certain people's excuses for why a thread can't be started like Edwards wasn't a hot commodity till week 3 of FA. Well, Tomlinson didn't sign until now so I guess he's not important. Back to the topic, I know teams were scared about his neck but team's are going to check him out as well as possible before signing him so obviously the Bill's doctors felt his neck was fine
The terms of Edwards deal was 4 years and 18 million so the Bills overpaid a little bit but had to get someone
Andra Davis reportedly only got a 2 year 4.2 million dollar deal, so even if he just becomes an upgrade over Mitchell we'll be happy with it. It might not be hard since Mitchell has been pretty bad for the Bills and is coming off of injury. I feel that Davis is just a holdover until we draft someone better then him so I feel these are two big pickups for us
