Edwards signed a contract Wednesday with the Browns, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports. Edwards has yet to play in an NFL game in 2017, but has accrued 22 appearances across stops with four teams the past four seasons. The 27-year-old should fill a depth role for the Browns along the defensive line.
Edwards was released by the Colts on Friday, Mike Chappell of IndySportsCentral.com reports. Edwards played in five games for the Colts this season after being claimed off waivers in mid-October, totaling four tackles and a sack in limited action. However, he's been inactive in each of the past two contests and appears to have fallen out of favor in Indianapolis. Fellow outside linebacker and second-year player Deiontrez Mount was signed in a corresponding move.
Edwards was claimed off waivers by the Colts, Mike Chappell of IndySportsCentral.com reports. In a surprising move, Edwards was waived by the Panthers on Tuesday despite the fact that his one sack on the year is more than both of Carolina's starting defensive ends combined (0.5 between Charles Johnson and Kony Ealy). Nonetheless, the hybrid linebacker/defensive end will now provide the Colts with depth at a few spots on defense.
Edwards was waived by the Bills on Friday, BuffaloBills.com reports. Edwards hasn't played since 2014, when he was with the Cowboys for four games. He was competing for a backup position on the defensive line before being cut.
The Cowboys activated defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence from injured reserve Saturday, waiving defensive end Lavar Edwards in a corresponding move. Lawrence suffered a fractured foot in late July and started the season on short-term injured reserve, placing Week 9 as his earliest possible return date. The rookie defensive end returned to practice in mid-October and should be available for Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals.
