  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Gathers team-high 13 tackles Sunday

    Edwards recorded 13 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 14-12 loss to the Packers.

    Edwards' 13 tackles was a key reason why the Buccaneers defense was able to hold Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' offense scoreless after halftime, but it wasn't quite enough to obtain the victory in Week 3. The fourth-year safety played every defensive snap Sunday, and he'll look to continue his impressive efforts when Tampa Bay hosts the Chiefs on Sunday night.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Game-sealing pick-six Sunday

    Edwards totaled three tackles and a pick-six in the Buccaneers' 20-10 win over the Saints on Sunday.

    Edwards had a modest day from a tackle perspective, but he offered quite the highlight when he returned a Jameis Winston pass 68 yards for a touchdown with 4:11 remaining to give the Buccaneers an insurmountable 20-3 lead. Edwards had posted five tackles in Tampa Bay's Week 1 win over the Cowboys as well, making it a strong start to his fourth season.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Solid night in Week 1 win

    Edwards recorded five tackles (four solo), including one defensed pass, during the Buccaneers' 19-3 win over the Cowboys in Week 1.

    Edwards turned in a solid effort that saw him finish tied for fourth on the team in tackles. The 2019 third-round pick drew the start at free safety and played all 69 defensive snaps, an encouraging development for his IDP prospects as he looks to top last season's career-high 46 tackles, three interceptions, seven defensed passes and pair of pick-sixes.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: No injury designation

    Edwards (illness) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's season opener against the Cowboys.

    Edwards landed on the injury report Thursday as a limited participant with an illness. However, he logged a full practice Friday and will be good to go for Week 1. Jordan Whitehead left in free agency this offseason, leaving Edwards to compete with newcomer Logan Ryan for the starting safety spot next to Antoine Winfield. It appears the incumbent Edwards has won the starting gig to start the campaign, but Ryan and Keanu Neal could push him for playing time if he struggles in his expanded role.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Top candidate to replace Whitehead

    Edwards, a 2019 third-round pick, is likely to have the first opportunity to replace the departed Jordan Whitehead at free safety, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    The Buccaneers signed Logan Ryan, who was a cornerback until the last two seasons, this offseason, but Auman seems to think the team will give the incumbent Edwards the first crack at replacing Whitehead. Edwards has started in the past and logged 45 games of regular-season action overall in his first three seasons, showing a good knack for getting his hands on the ball with five interceptions and an additional 13 defensed passes over that span. However, given Ryan is an even more proven commodity, it could be a hotly contested battle between the two during training camp and preseason.

  • 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.
