  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Paces team in tackles

    Edwards recorded nine tackles (all solo), including one for loss, and an interception during the Buccaneers' 31-15 wild-card win over the Eagles on Sunday.

    Edwards' tackle total led the Buccaneers on the afternoon, and his late first-half interception at the goal line on a deep ball intended for DeVonta Smith preserved a 17-0 lead going into halftime. The third-year pro also recorded a trio of picks during the regular season and could certainly play a pivotal role once again in Sunday's divisional-round battle versus the Rams' potent passing attack.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Co-leads team in tackles

    Edwards (suspension) tallied seven tackles (four solo) during the Buccaneers' 32-6 win over the Panthers in Week 16.

    Edwards tied Jordan Whitehead for the team lead in tackles in his first game back from a three-game suspension. The third-year defensive back's tackle total was also a season-high figure, and he could continue to enjoy an elevated role akin to the 67 snaps he logged against Carolina over the final two weeks of the regular season.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Suspension lifted

    Edwards (suspension) rejoined the Buccaneers on Monday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Coach Bruce Arians said of Edwards and Antonio Brown (ankle), who each had their suspensions lifted Monday, "We'll welcome them back," per Greg Auman of The Athletic. Both Edwards and Brown are coming off three-game suspensions for having violated the joint NFL and NFLPA COVID-19 protocols for misrepresenting their vaccination statuses. It appears as though the safety will be allowed to prepare for Week 16's game against the Panthers normally.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Preparing to rejoin team Monday

    Edwards is expected to rejoin the Buccaneers on Monday after his three-game suspension concludes after Sunday's contest against the Saints, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    After both Edwards and wide receiver Antonio Brown were suspended three games earlier this month for violating the joint NFL and NFLPA COVID-19 protocols for misrepresenting their vaccination statuses, head coach Bruce Arians was noncommittal on either player's future with the organization. Arians told reporters Friday that he planned to make an announcement on the matter following Sunday's contest, but all indications are that both Edwards and Brown will be back at the Bucs' facility as the team begins preparing for a Week 16 matchup with the Panthers. Before he was suspended, Edwards appeared in each of Tampa Bay's first 11 games, tallying 35 tackles, seven pass breakups, three interceptions -- two of which he returned for touchdowns -- and a forced fumble.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Gets three-game suspension from NFL

    The NFL announced Thursday that Edwards has been suspended three games for violating jointly developed and administered NFL-NFLPA COVID-19 protocols.

    Edwards was suspended following a joint NFL-NFLPA review into recent allegations that he misrepresented his vaccination status. The third-year safety has already accepted the three-game ban and has waived his right to appeal, making him ineligible to play until the Buccaneers' Week 16 game against the Panthers on Dec. 26. Edwards had suited up for each of the Buccaneers' first 11 contests of the season, tallying 35 tackles, seven pass breakups, a forced fumble and three interceptions, two of which he returned for touchdowns.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Active in Week 12 win

    Edwards recorded three solo tackles, defensed two passes and forced a fumble in the Buccaneers' 38-31 win over the Colts on Sunday.

    Edwards turned in a fantasy-friendly effort despite the modest number of tackles, notching his second game with multiple defensed passes this season and forcing his fumble of the campaign when he stripped Zach Pascal late in the first quarter after a nine-yard catch. The third-year pro remains stuck in a rotational role behind starting free safety Jordan Whitehead but has proven adept at getting his hands on the ball (three interceptions, four additional defensed passes) and contributing some serviceable tackle numbers (35) relative to playing time in that role.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Impressive in spot start

    Edwards posted six tackles (five solo) while drawing a start at strong safety for Antoine Winfield (concussion) in the Buccaneers' 45-17 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.

    Edwards is somewhat of a luxury for head coach Bruce Arians as a starting-caliber young player who's available to step into the lineup in a pinch, as he did Sunday. The 2019 third-round pick, who also had a pair of interceptions in Week 2, racked up a season-high number of tackles across 50 snaps. Edwards is set for a second consecutive start Thursday night against the Eagles with Winfield already ruled out for the contest.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Set to start

    Edwards is expected to start in place of Antoine Winfield (concussion) in Sunday's matchup against the Dolphins, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    Winfield suffered a concussion in the team's victory over New England in Week 4, and he'll remain out against Miami. As a result, Edwards will see an increased role. Through four games, Edwards has recorded 13 tackles, two interceptions and three passes defended -- primarily as a part-time player.
